The system will be disarmed when:
The doors (and liftgate) are unlocked with the smart key.
After pressing the unlock button, the hazard warning lights will blink and the chime will sound twice (in smart key) to indicate that the system is disarmed.
After pressing the unlock button, if any door (or liftgate) is not opened within 30 seconds, the system will be rearmed.
Avoid trying to start the vehicle while the alarm is activated. The vehicle starting motor is disabled during the theft-alarm stage.
If the system is not disarmed with the smart key, open the doors by using the mechanical key and start the vehicle by directly pressing the EV button with the smart key.
If you lose your keys, consult your authorized Kia dealer.
