CAUTION

Take the following precautions to maintain optimal performance of the detecting sensor:

  • Never disassemble the detecting sensor or sensor assembly, or cause any damage to it.
  • If the detecting sensors have been replaced or repaired, have the vehicle inspected by a professional workshop.

    Kia recommends visiting an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

  • Never install any accessories or stickers on the front windshield, or tint the front windshield.
  • Pay extreme caution to keep the front view camera dry.
  • Never place any reflective objects (for example, white paper, mirror) over the dashboard.
  • Do not place any objects near the front windshield or install any accessories on the front windshield. It can affect the performance of the defogging and defrosting function of the climate control system, which may prevent the Driver Assistance systems from operating.
  • Do not apply license plate frame or objects, such as a bumper sticker, film or a bumper guard, near the front radar cover.
  • Always keep the front radar and cover clean and free of dirt and debris.

    Use only a soft cloth to wash the vehicle.

    Do not spray pressurized water directly on the sensor or sensor cover.

  • If the radar or around the radar has been damaged or impacted in any way, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not properly operate even though a warning message does not appear on the cluster. Have the vehicle inspected by a professional workshop.

    Kia recommends visiting an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

  • The genuine Kia front radar sensor covers are parts with quality and performance ensured. If arbitrarily applying paint on or changing the cover, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not function properly.

    Use only Kia Genuine Parts or those of an equivalent standard with proven quality and performance to repair or replace the radar sensor covers.

  • Vehicles equipped with front corner radar and/or rear corner radar
  • Do not apply license plate frame or objects, such as a bumper sticker, film or a bumper guard, near the front corner radar or rear corner radar.
  •  The function may not work properly when the bumper has been replaced, or the surroundings of the front corner radar or rear corner radar has been damaged or paint has been applied.
  •  If a trailer, carrier, etc. is installed, it may adversely affect the performance of the rear corner radar or Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate properly.
