Kia Picanto: Seat belts / Pre-tensioner seat belt

Kia Picanto JA 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Safety features of your vehicle / Seat belts / Pre-tensioner seat belt

Your vehicle is equipped with pre-tensioner seatbelts at the front and rear outboard seating positions EFD (Emergency Fastening Device) is equipped with driver`s seat belt.

The purpose of the pre-tensioner is to make sure that the seat belts fit tightly against the occupant's body in certain collisions. The pre-tensioner seat belts may be activated in crashes where the collision is severe enough.

When the vehicle stops suddenly, or if the occupant tries to lean forward too quickly, the seat belt retractor will lock into position. In certain frontal collisions, the pre-tensioner will activate and pull the seat belt into tighter contact against the occupant's body.

1. Retractor Pretensioner The purpose of the retractor pretensioner is to make sure that the shoulder belts fit in tightly against the occupant's upper body in certain frontal collisions.

2. EFD (Emergency Fastening Device, for driver`s seat belt) The purpose of the EFD is to make sure that the pelvis belts fit in tightly against the occupant's lower body in certain frontal collisions.

If the system senses excessive tension on the driver or passenger's seat belt when the pre-tensioner activates, the load limiter inside the pre-tensioner will release some of the pressure on the affected seat belt.

WARNING

For your safety, be sure that the belt webbing is not loose or twisted and always sit properly on your seat.

NOTICE

if equipped with rollover sensor

The pre-tensioner will activate not only in a frontal collision but also in a side collision or rollover, if the vehicle is equipped with a side or curtain air bag.

NOTICE

without rollover sensor

The pre-tensioner will activate not only in a frontal collision but also in a side collision, if the vehicle is equipped with a side or curtain air bag.

1. SRS air bag warning light
