The warning message is displayed to protect the electric vehicle system when you turn off the vehicle while outside temperature is low. If the high voltage battery charging level is low and parked outside in low temperature for a long time, vehicle power could be limited.

Charging the battery before driving, increases the battery temperature, and helps increase power.

CAUTION

  • If this warning message is still displayed even when the ambient temperature is sufficiently high, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
  • When the battery temperature is extremely low in winter, the battery temperature optimization is conducted for normal driving conditions.

    The optimization time may vary depending on the battery temperature and charging conditions.

  • If the high voltage battery level and temperature is too low, the power may be limited. When the warning message is displayed, please charge the vehicle immediately.
