Kia Rio: Driving your vehicle / Key positions

Kia Rio 2017-2020 YB Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Key positions

Ignition switch position

LOCK

The steering wheel locks to protect against theft.

The ignition key can be removed only in the LOCK position. When turning the ignition switch to the LOCK position, push the key inward at the ACC position and turn the key toward the LOCK position.

The anti-theft steering column lock is not a substitute for the parking brake.

Before leaving the driver's seat, always make sure the shift lever is engaged in 1st gear for the Manual Transmission or P (Park) for the Intelligent Variable Transmission, set the parking brake fully and shut the engine off.

ACC (Accessory)

The steering wheel is unlocked and electrical accessories are operative.

If difficulty is experienced turning the ignition switch to the ACC position, turn the key while turning the steering wheel right and left to release the tension.

ON

The warning lights can be checked before the engine is started. This is the normal running position after the engine is started.

Do not leave the ignition switch ON if the engine is not running to prevent battery discharge.

START

Turn the ignition switch to the START position to start the engine. The engine will crank until you release the key; then it returns to the ON position. The brake warning light can be checked in this position.

✽ NOTICE

If you leave the ignition switch to the ACC or ON position for a long time, the battery may discharge.

WARNING - Ignition switch

Never turn the ignition switch to LOCK or ACC while the vehicle is moving. This would result in loss of directional control and braking function, which could cause an accident.

WARNING - Steering wheel

Never reach for any controls through the steering wheel while the vehicle is in motion. The presence of your hand or arm in this area could cause a loss of vehicle control.

WARNING - Key holder

Do not attach small purses, multiple keys, or any other heavy accessories to the driver's key chain used to start the vehicle. This may cause the inserted key to inadvertently change the ignition position to the ACC position while the vehicle is moving, thereby increasing the risk of an accident and deactivating several safety features.

WARNING - Leaving the vehicle

To avoid unexpected or sudden vehicle movement, never leave your vehicle if the transmission is not locked in the P (Park) position and the parking brake is not fully engaged. Before leaving the driver's seat, always make sure the shift lever is engaged in P (Park), set the parking brake fully and shut the engine off.
