My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Robert. Thanks for the question tonight. When these two lights illuminate or flicker like you’ve described, it usually indicates that a sensor or electrical connection to a sensor that monitors these systems. There are several of these sensors on your Kia Sedona, so it’s hard to tell you which ones to check. The best advice I can offer is to have a professional mechanic complete a warning light inspection, so they can download any stored codes, which should lead them to the root problems.
