Battery recharging

Your vehicle has a maintenance-free, calcium-based battery.

  • If the battery becomes discharged in a short time (because, for example, the headlights or interior lights were left on while the vehicle was not in use), run the vehicle for at least approximately 60 minutes while driving or at idle.

    Also, connect the fully automatic regulated charger to the 12V battery located in the motor room compartment.

  • If the battery gradually discharges because of high electric load while the vehicle is being used, recharge it at 20~30 A for 2 hours.

WARNING

When recharging the battery, observe the following precautions:

  • The battery must be removed from the vehicle and placed in an area with good ventilation.
  •   Watch the battery during charging, and stop or reduce the charging rate if the battery cells begin gassing (boiling) violently or if the temperature of the electrolyte of any cell exceeds 49C (120F).
  •  Wear eye protection when checking the battery during charging.
  •  Disconnect the battery charger in the following order.
  1. Turn off the battery charger main switch.
  2. Unhook the negative clamp from the negative battery terminal.
  3. Unhook the positive clamp from the positive battery terminal.
  • Before performing maintenance or recharging the battery, turn off all accessories and stop the vehicle.
  • The negative battery cable must be removed first and installed last when the battery is disconnected.
  • We recommend that you use batteries for replacement from an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
