KIA Niro: Warning and indicator lights (related to electric vehicle)

Ready indicator READY

  • This indicator appears: When the vehicle is ready to be driven.
  • ON: Normal driving is possible.
  •  OFF: Normal driving is not possible, or a problem has occurred.
  •  Blinking: Emergency driving.

When the ready indicator goes OFF or blinks, there is a problem with the system.

In this case, we recommend to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

Service warning light

This warning light appears:

  • When the EV button is in the ON position.
  • It appears for approximately 3 seconds and then goes off.
  • When there is a problem with related parts of the electric vehicle control system, such as sensors, etc.

When the warning light illuminates while driving, or does not go OFF after starting the vehicle, we recommend to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

Power down indicator light

This indicator light appears:

  • When the EV button is in the ON position.
  • It appears for approximately 3 seconds and then goes off.
  • When the power is limited for the safety of the high-powered parts of an electric vehicle. The power is limited for the following reasons.(Unless both Service Warning Light and Power Down Indicator Light illuminate at the same time, it is not a failure.)
  • The high voltage battery level is too low or voltage is decreasing
  • The temperature of the high voltage battery is too high or too low
  • The temperature of the motor is high

NOTICE

  • Do not accelerate or start the vehicle suddenly when the power down indicator light is ON.
  • When the power is limited for the safety of the high-powered parts of an electric vehicle, the power down indicator light appears. Your vehicle may not be driven, or may roll back on a slope with the indicator light ON.

Charging indicator light

This warning light appears:

  • When the charging connector is connected to charge the high voltage battery.

High voltage battery level warning light

This warning light appears:

  • When the high voltage battery level is low.
  • When the warning light turns ON, charge the battery immediately.

Regenerative brake warning light (red color) (yellow color)

This warning light appears:

  • When the regenerative brake does not operate and the brake does not perform well. This causes the Brake Warning light (red) and Regenerative Brake Warning Light (yellow) to illuminate simultaneously.

In this case, drive safely and we recommend that you have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Kia dealer/ service partner.

The operation of the brake pedal may be more difficult than normal and the braking distance can increase.
