When the front windshield where the front view camera is located is covered with foreign material, such as snow or rain, it can reduce the detecting performance and temporarily limit or disable Intelligent Speed Limit Assist. If this occurs, the warning message will appear on the cluster.

If Intelligent Speed Limit Assist does not operate properly after it is removed, we recommend the function checked by an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
