This system is designed to provide protection from unauthorized entry into the vehicle.
This system is operated in three stages:
If triggered, the system provides an audible alarm with blinking of the hazard warning lights.
Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it.
Using the smart key
Park the vehicle and stop the engine.
Arm the system as described below.
After completion of the steps above, the hazard warning lights will operate once to indicate that the system is armed. If any door (or liftgate) or hood remains open, the hazard warning lights and the chime will not operate and the theft-alarm will not arm. If all doors and liftgate and hood are closed after the lock button is pressed, the hazard warning lights blink once. The system can also be armed by locking the doors with the key from the front doors; however, the hazard warning lights will not blink using this method.
The theft-alarm system can be deactivated by an authorized Kia dealer.
If you want this feature, consult an authorized Kia dealer.
Do not arm the system until all passengers have left the vehicle. If the system is armed while a passenger(s) remains in the vehicle, the alarm may be activated when the remaining passenger(s) leaves the vehicle. If any door (or liftgate) or hood is opened within 30 seconds after the system enters the armed stage, the system will be disarmed to prevent unnecessary alarm.
