* The actual shape and position of sensors may differ from the illustration.

  1. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control module/rollover sensor

  2. Front impact sensor

Air Bag Sensors

  • Do not hit or allow any objects to impact the locations where air bags or sensors are installed.

    This may cause unexpected air bag deployment, which could result in serious personal injury or death.

  • If the installation location or angle of the sensors is altered in any way, the air bags may deploy when they should not or they may not deploy when they should.

    Therefore, do not try to perform maintenance on or around the air bag sensors. Have the vehicle checked and repaired by an authorized Kia dealer.

Problems may arise if the sensor installation angles are changed due to the deformation of the front bumper, front end module, body or front doors where side collision sensors are installed. Have the vehicle checked and repaired by an authorized Kia dealer.

Installing bumper guards (or side step or running board) or replacing a bumper (or front door module) with non-genuine parts may adversely affect your vehicle's collision and air bag deployment performance.
