2003 Kia Sedona Two Wheel Drive Automatic 55000 miles

My husband used my Sedona to charge his car - which had a marine batery- and ever since then the battery and break lights stay on when I start the car. The Sedona the second day after he charged his car just died so we replaced the battery but the lights are still on. If I turn the car off and then turn it back on the lights go off but if I wait say like 5 minutes the lights will come back on when the car is started again.

Do I really need to take it in to Kia and pay all that money?

Help!

Hi:
A dealer? Lets try some free things first. I want you to take the car to a nationally recognized parts store and have the alt tested. Most places will do it for free. Something tells me something may have happend to the voltage regulator.

Let me know what you find.
