NOTICE

  • After adjustment, sometimes the lockrelease lever may not lock the steering wheel.

    It is not a malfunction. This occurs when two gears engage. In this case, adjust the steering wheel again and then lock the steering wheel.

  • The following symptoms may occur during normal vehicle operation:
  • The MDPS warning light does not appear.
  •  The steering effort is high immediately after turning the ignition switch or ENGINE START/STOP button on. This happens as the MDPS system performs the diagnostics.

    When the diagnostics is completed, the steering effort will return to its normal condition.

  •  A click noise may be heard from the MDPS relay after the ignition switch or ENGINE START/STOP button is turned to the ON or LOCK position.
  •  Motor noise may be heard when the vehicle is at a stop or at a low driving speed.
  •  When the abnormality is detected in the electric power steering system, a deadly accident prevention purposes, steering assist functions will be stopped. At this time, the instrument panel warning light turns on or blinks and the power to manipulate the steering will be off.

    Please check immediately after moving the vehicle to a safe zone.

  •  The steering effort increases if the steering wheel is rotated continuously when the vehicle is not in motion. However, after a few minutes, it will return to its normal conditions.
  • If the Motor Driven Power Steering System does not operate normally, the warning light appear on the instrument cluster. The steering wheel may become difficult to control or operate abnormally. In this case, have the system inspected by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
  • When you operate the steering wheel in low temperature, abnormal noise could occur. If temperature rises, the noise will disappear.

    This is a normal condition.

  •  When jump starting the vehicle after battery discharge, the steering wheel may not function properly.

    It is a temporary situation due to low battery voltage, and upon stable battery charging, the steering wheel will function normally again. Please move the steering wheel around to make sure the steering wheel is functioning properly before driving the vehicle.
