Kia Soul (SK3) 2020-2020 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / DRIVER ATTENTION WARNING (DAW) SYSTEM / System malfunction

Kia Soul. System malfunction

When the "Check System" warning message appears, the system is not working properly. In this case, have the system checked by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

WARNING

  • Driver Attention Warning system is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but a convenience function only. It is the responsibility of the driver to always drive cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring. Pay attention to the road conditions at all times.
  • It may suggest a break according to the driver’s driving pattern or habits even if the driver doesn’t feel fatigued.
  • The driver, who feels fatigued, should take a break, even though there is no break suggestion by Driver Attention Warning system.

NOTICE

Driver Attention Warning system utilizes the camera sensor on the front windshield for its operation. To keep the camera sensor in the best condition, you should observe the followings:

- Do not disassemble camera temporarily for tinted window or attaching any types of coatings and accessories. If you disassemble a camera and assemble it again, have the system checked by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner and have the system checked to need a calibration.
- Do not locate any reflective objects (i.e. white paper, mirror) over the dashboard. Any light reflection may cause a mal-function of Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system.
- Pay extreme caution to keep the camera sensor out of water.
- Do not arbitrarily disassemble the camera assembly, nor apply any impact on the camera assembly.

• Playing the vehicle audio system at high volume may offset Driver Attention Warning system warning sounds.

  • The lane detection performance is limited. (For more information, refer to “Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system” on page 6-99.)
  • The vehicle is violently driven or is abruptly turned for obstacle avoidance (e.g. construction area, other vehicles, fallen objects, bumpy road).
  • Forward drivability of the vehicle is severely undermined (possibly due to wide variation in tire pressures, uneven tire wear-out, toe-in/toeout alignment).
