Kia Picanto: Air bag - supplemental restraint system / Driver's and passenger's front air bag

Kia Picanto JA 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Safety features of your vehicle / Air bag - supplemental restraint system / Driver's and passenger's front air bag

Your vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint (Air Bag) System and lap/shoulder belts at both the driver and passenger seating positions.

The indications of the system's presence are the letters "AIRBAG" engraved on the air bag pad cover in the steering wheel and the passenger's side front panel pad above the glove box.

The SRS consists of air bags installed under the pad covers in the center of the steering wheel and the passenger's side front panel above the glove box.

The purpose of the SRS is to provide the vehicle's driver and/or the front passenger with additional protection than that offered by the seat belt system alone in case of a frontal impact of sufficient severity.

WARNING

The driver's hands should be placed on the steering wheel at the 9:00 and 3:00 positions. The passenger's arms and hands should be placed on their laps.

WARNING

Always use seat belts and child restraints – every trip, every time, everyone! Air bags inflate with considerable force and in the blink of an eye. Seat belts help keep occupants in proper position to obtain maximum benefit from the air bag. Even with air bags, improperly belted and unbelted occupants can be severely injured when the air bag inflates. Always follow the precautions about seat belts, air bags and occupant safety contained in this manual. To reduce the chance of serious or fatal injuries and receive the maximum safety benefit from your restraint system:

Passenger’s front air bag ON/OFF switch

The passenger’s front air bag can be deactivated by the passenger’s front air bag ON/OFF switch if a child restraint is installed on the front passenger's seat or if the front passenger's seat is unoccupied by a person. To ensure the safety of your child, the passenger’s front air bag must be deactivated when it should be necessary to install a rearward facing child seat on the front passenger seat in exceptional circumstances.

To deactivate or reactivate the passenger’s front air bag:

To deactivate the passenger’s front air bag, insert the master key into the passenger’s front air bag ON/OFF switch and turn it to the OFF position. The passenger’s front air bag OFF indicator () will illuminate and stay on until the passenger’s front air bag is reactivated.

To reactivate the passenger’s front air bag, insert the master key into the passenger’s front air bag ON/OFF switch and turn it to the ON position.

The passenger’s front air bag OFF indicator will go out and the passenger’s front air bag ON indicator () will illuminate for approximately 60 seconds.

WARNING

The front air bag ON/OFF switch could turn by using a similar small rigid device. Always check the status of the front air bag ON/OFF switch and passenger's front air bag ON/OFF indicator.
