Reverse Parking Distance Warning (PDW)

reverse-01

This function is a supplemental function and it is not intended to nor does it replace the need for extreme care and attention of the driver. The sensing range and objects detectable by the back sensors (1) are limited. Whenever backing up, pay as much attention to what is behind you as you would in a vehicle without Reverse Parking Distance Warning.

WARNING
Reverse Parking Distance Warning
Never rely solely on Reverse Parking Distance Warning. Always perform a visual inspection to make sure the vehicle is clear of all obstructions before moving the vehicle in any direction. Stop immediately if you are aware of a child anywhere near your vehicle. Some objects may not be detected by the sensors, due to the object’s size or material.

  •  This function will activate when the indicator on the Parking Safety button is not illuminated. If you desire to deactivate the Reverse Parking Distance Warning, press the Parking Safety button again. (The indicator on the button will illuminate.) To turn the function on, press the button again. (The indicator on the button will go off.)
  • This function will activate when backing up with the ENGINE START/STOP button ON.
    If the vehicle is moving at a speed over 3 mph (5 km/h), the function may not be activated correctly.
  • The sensing distance while the backup warning system is in operation is approximately 48 inches (120 cm) from the central area of the rear bumper and 24 inches (60 cm) from the side area of the rear bumper.
  • When more than two objects are sensed at the same time, the closest one will be recognized first.

Types of warning sound

  • When an object is 48 inches to 24 inches (120 cm to 60 cm) from the rear bumper: the Buzzer beeps intermittently.
  • When an object is 24 inches to 12 inches (60 cm to 30 cm) from the rear bumper: Buzzer beeps more frequently.
  • When an object is within 12 inches (30 cm) of the rear bumper: the Buzzer sounds continuously.

Reverse Parking Distance Warning not operation
Reverse Parking Distance Warning may not operate properly when:

  • Moisture is frozen to the sensor.
    (It will operate normally once the moisture clears.)
  • The sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as snow or water, or the sensor cover is blocked. (It will operate normally when the material is removed or the sensor is no longer blocked.)
  • Driving on uneven road surfaces (unpaved roads, gravel, bumps, gradient).
  • Objects generating excessive noise (vehicle horns, loud motorcycle engines, or truck air brakes) are within range of the sensor.
  • There is rain or water spraying nearby.
  • Wireless transmitters or mobile phones are within range of the sensor.
  • The sensor is covered with snow.
  • Trailer towing The detecting range may decrease when:
  • The sensor is covered with foreign matter such as snow or water. (The sensing range will return to normal when removed.)
  • Outside air temperature is extremely hot or cold.

The following objects may not be recognized by the sensor:

  • Sharp or slim objects such as ropes, chains or small poles.
  • Objects that tend to absorb the frequency emitted by the sensor such as clothes, sound-absorbent material or snow.
  •  There are undetectable objects smaller than 40 inches (100 cm) in height and narrower than 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter.

Reverse Parking Distance Warning Precautions

  •  The sound of Reverse Parking Distance Warning may change depending on the speed and shape of the objects detected.
  • Reverse Parking Distance Warning may malfunction if the vehicle bumper height or sensor installation has been modified or dam-aged. Any non-factory installed equipment or accessories may also interfere with the sensor performance.
  • The sensor may not recognize objects less than 12 inches (30 cm) from the sensor, or it may sense an incorrect distance. Use caution.
  • When the sensor is frozen or covered with snow, dirt, or water, the sensor may be inoperative until the material is removed using a soft cloth.
  • To prevent damage, do not push, scratch or strike the sensor.

NOTICE
This function can only sense objects within the range and location of the sensors. It cannot detect objects in other areas where sensors are not installed. Also, small or slim objects, such as poles or objects located between sensors may not be detected by the sensors. Pay close attention when the vehicle is driven close to objects on the road, particularly pedestrians, and especially children. Always visually check behind the vehicle when backing up. Be sure to inform any drivers of the vehicle that may be unfamiliar with the function regarding the functions capabilities and limitations.

Self-diagnosis
If you don’t hear an audible warning sound or if the buzzer sounds intermittently when shifting the gear to the R (Reverse) position, this may indicate a malfunction in Reverse Parking Distance Warning. If this occurs, have your vehicle checked by an authorized Kia dealer as soon as possible.

NOTICE
Your new vehicle warranty does not cover any accidents or damage to the vehicle or injuries to its occupants. Always drive safely and cautiously.
