Kia Soul EV (PS EV) 2015-2020 Service Manual / Restraint / Description and Operation

Warning Lamp Activation
Warning Lamp Behavior after Ignition On
As soon as the operating voltage is applied to the SRSCM ignition input, the SRSCM activates the warning lamp for a lamp check.
The lamp will turn on for 6 seconds during the initialization phase and will then turn off afterward.
If there are any active faults after the operating voltage is applied, the warning lamp will flicker on for 6 seconds and off for 1 second to alert the driver.
Active fault or historical fault counter is greater or equal to 10.

Normal or historical fault counter is less than 10.

When turning the ignition switch ON during variant coding (EOL) mode, the airbag warning lamp is turned on and blinks at intervals of 1 second till the coding is completed.
When the variant coding is successfully completed, the airbag warning lamp will turn on for 6 seconds and then turn off. Otherwise, the airbag warning lamp will continuously flicker at intervals of 1 second.
In case the variant coding is successfully completed

In case the variant coding is not completed

When there is active fault in airbag system or SRSCM internal fault, the variant coding (EOL) cannot be completed. In this case, perform the variant coding (EOL) procedure again after troubleshooting with the GDS.
SRSCM Independent warning lamp activation
There are certain fault conditions in which the SRSCM cannot function and thus cannot control the operation of the standard warning lamp. In these cases, the standard warning lamp is directly activated by appropriate circuitry that operates independently of the SRSCM.
These cases include:
Loss of battery sypply to the SRSCM : warning lamp stays on
Loss of internal operating voltage : warning lamp stays on
Loss of Microprocessor operation : warning lamp stays on
SRSCM not connected : warning lamp stays on through the shorting bar
Telltale Lamp Activation
The Telltale Lamp indicates whether the Passenger Airbag (PAB) is enabled or disabled according to the occupant status on passenger seat. If the passenger seat is empty or occupied with a child (or a child seat), the Passenger Airbag is disabled and the Telltale Lamp is turned ON to inform the driver that the PAB is disabled. As soon as operating voltage is applied to the SRSCM ignition input, the SRSCM activates telltale lamp to prove out. ODS (Occupant Detection System) will send an unknown status to the SRSCM as a default setting for passenger airbag deployment during the validation period.
After turning the ignition on, talltale lamp will turn on for 4 seconds and turn off for 3 seconds during the initialization phase and will keep ON afterward until receiving a valid enabling message from ODS system.
