Kia Sportage - Fifth generation (NQ5) - (2022-2024) - Owner's Manual / Driving your vehicle / Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA) / Limitations of Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist

Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may not assist braking or warn the driver even if there are pedestrians or objects under the following circumstances:

  • Any non-factory equipment or accessory is installed
  • Your vehicle is unstable due to an accident or other causes
  • Bumper height or rear ultrasonic sensor installation has been modified
  • Rear view camera or rear ultrasonic sensor(s) is damaged
  • Rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensor(s) is stained with foreign material, such as snow, dirt, etc.
  • Rear view camera is obscured by a light source or by inclement weather, such as heavy rain, fog, snow, etc.
  • The surroundings are very bright or very dark
  • Outside temperature is very high or very low
  • The wind is either strong (above 12 mph (20 km/h)) or blowing perpendicular to the rear bumper
  • Objects generating excessive noise, such as vehicle horns, loud motorcycle engines or truck air brakes, are near your vehicle
  • An ultrasonic sensor with similar frequency is near your vehicle
  • The pedestrians are difficult to recognize under following conditions:
  • There is ground height difference between the vehicle and the pedestrian
  • The image of the pedestrian in the rear view camera is indistinguishable from the background
  • The pedestrian is near the rear edge of the vehicle
  • The pedestrian is not standing upright
  • The pedestrian is either very short or very tall for Reverse Parking Collision- Avoidance Assist to detect
  • The pedestrian or cyclist is wearing clothing that easily blends into the background, making it difficult to detect
  • The pedestrian is wearing clothing that does not reflect ultrasonic waves well
  • Size, thickness, height, or shape of the object does not reflect ultrasonic waves well (e.g., pole, bush, curbs, carts, edge of a wall, etc.)
  • The pedestrian or the object is moving
  • The pedestrian or the object is very close to the rear of the vehicle
  • A wall is behind the pedestrian or the object
  • The object is not located at the rear center of your vehicle
  • The object is not parallel to the rear bumper
  • The road is slippery or inclined
  • The driver backs up the vehicle immediately after shifting to R (Reverse)
  • The driver accelerates or circles the vehicle

Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may unnecessarily warn the driver or assist with braking even if there are no pedestrians or objects under the following circumstances:

  • Any non-factory equipment or accessory is installed
  • Your vehicle is unstable due to an accident or other causes
  • Bumper height or rear ultrasonic sensor installation has been modified
  • Your vehicle height is low or high due to heavy loads, abnormal tire pressure, etc.
  • Rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensor(s) is stained with foreign material, such as snow, dirt, etc.
  • The pattern on the road is mistaken for a pedestrian
  • There is shadow or light reflecting on the ground
  • Pedestrians or objects are around the path of the vehicle
  • Objects generating excessive noise, such as vehicle horns, loud motorcycle engines or truck air brakes, are near your vehicle
  • Your vehicle is backing towards a narrow passage or parking space
  • Your vehicle is backing towards an uneven road surface, such as an unpaved road, gravel, bump, gradient, etc.
  • A trailer or carrier is installed on the rear of your vehicle
  • An ultrasonic sensor with similar frequency is near your vehicle

WARNING

  • Always pay extreme caution while driving. The driver is responsible for controlling the brake for safe driving.
  • Always pay attention to road and traffic conditions while driving, whether or not there is a warning.
  • Always look around your vehicle to make sure there are no pedestrians or objects before moving the vehicle.
  • The performance of Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may vary under certain conditions. If vehicle speed is above 2 mph (4 km/h), Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist will provide collision avoidance assist only when pedestrians are detected. Always look around and pay attention when Reversing your vehicle.
  • Some objects may not be detected by the rear ultrasonic sensors due to the objects distance, size or material, all of which can limit the effectiveness of the sensor.
  • Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate properly or may operate unnecessarily depending on the road conditions and the surroundings.
  • Do not solely rely on Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist. Doing so may lead to vehicle damage or injuries.
  • Always keep the rear view camera and rear ultrasonic sensors clean.
  • Do not use any cleanser containing acid or alkaline detergents when cleaning the rear view camera lens.

    Use only a mild soap or neutral detergent, and rinse thoroughly with water.

  • Do not spray the rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensors or their surrounding area directly with a high pressure washer. It may cause the rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensors to malfunction.
  • Do not apply objects, such as a bumper sticker or a bumper guard, near the rear view camera or rear ultrasonic sensors or apply paint to the bumper. Doing so may adversely affect the performance of Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist.
  • Never disassemble or apply impact on the rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensors components.
  • Do not apply unnecessary force on the rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensors. Reverse Parking Collision- Avoidance Assist may not operate properly if the rear view camera or the rear ultrasonic sensor(s) is forcibly moved out of proper alignment.

    Kia recommends visiting an authorized Kia dealer.

  • Noise may be heard when sudden braking occurs to avoid a collision.
  • If any other warning sound such as the seat belt warning chime is already generated, Reverse Parking Collision- Avoidance Assist warning may not sound.
  • Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may not work properly if the bumper has been damaged, replaced or repaired.
  • Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate normally if interfered by strong electromagnetic waves.
  • Playing the vehicle audio system at high volume may prevent passengers from hearing Reverse Parking Collision- Avoidance Assist warning sounds.
  • The brake control may not operate properly depending on the status of ESC (Electronic Stability Control).

    There will only be a warning when:

  • The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) warning light is on
  •  ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is engaged in a different function

NOTICE

Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist can detect a pedestrian or an object when:

  • A pedestrian is standing behind the vehicle
  • A large obstacle, such as a vehicle, is parked in the rear center of your vehicle
