Kia Stinger: Seat belts / Seat belt restraint system

Kia Stinger CK 2018-2020 Owners Manual / Safety features of your vehicle / Seat belts / Seat belt restraint system

WARNING - Twisted seat belt

Make sure your seat belt is not twisted when worn. A twisted seat belt may not properly protect you in an accident and could even cut into your body.

WARNING - Shoulder Belt

WARNING - Damaged seat belt

Replace the entire seat belt assembly if any part of the webbing or hardware is damaged as you can no longer be sure that a damaged seat belt will provide protection in a crash.

Seat belts are designed to bear upon the bony structure of the body, and should be worn low across the front of the pelvis, chest and shoulders, as applicable; wearing the lap section of the belt across the abdominal area must be avoided.

Seat belts should be adjusted as firmly as possible, consistent with comfort, to provide the protection for which they have been designed.

A slack belt will greatly reduce the protection afforded to the wearer.

Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the webbing with polishes, oils and chemicals, and particularly battery acid. Cleaning may safely be carried out using mild soap and water. The belt should be replaced if webbing becomes frayed, contaminated or damaged.

WARNING - Seat belt buckle

Do not allow foreign material (gum, crumbs, coins, etc.) to obstruct the seat belt buckle. This may prevent the seat belt from fastening securely.

Seat belt warning

Driver’s seat belt warning

As a reminder to the driver, the seat belt warning light will illuminate for approximately 6 seconds each time the engine start/stop button is in ON regardless of belt fastening and warning chime will sound for approximately 6 seconds each time the engine start/stop button is in ON when the belt is unfastened.

If a driver continues not to fasten the seat belt and drive 9 km/h (5.6 mph) or more but less than 20 km/h (12 mph), the warning light will stay illuminated.

If a driver continues not to fasten the seat belt while driving over 20 km/h (12 mph), the seat belt warning chime will sound for approximately 100 seconds and the corresponding warning light will blink.

If a driver unfastens the seat belt while driving below 20 km/h (12 mph), the warning light will stay illuminated.

If a driver unfastens the seat belt while driving over 20 km/h (12 mph), the seat belt warning chime will sound for approximately 100 seconds and the corresponding warning light will blink.

Front passenger's seat belt warning

As a reminder to the front passenger, the front passenger’s seat belt warning lights will illuminate for approximately 6 seconds each time you turn the Engine start/stop button in ON regardless of belt fastening.

If the front passenger continues not to fasten the seat belt and the vehicle is moving 9 km/h (5.6 mph) or more but less than 20 km/h (12 mph), the warning light will stay illuminated.

If the front passenger continues not to fasten the seat belt while the vehicle is moving over 20 km/h (12 mph), the seat belt warning chime will sound for approximately 100 seconds and the corresponding warning light will blink.

If the front passenger unfastens the seat belt while the vehicle is moving below 20 km/h (12 mph), the warning light will stay illuminated.

If the front passenger unfastens the seat belt while the vehicle is moving over 20 km/h (12 mph), the seat belt warning chime will sound for approximately 100 seconds and the corresponding warning light will blink.

Lap/shoulder belt

Height adjustment

You can adjust the height of the shoulder belt anchor to one of 4 positions for maximum comfort and safety.

The height of the adjusting seat belt should not be too close to your neck. You will not be getting the most effective protection. The shoulder portion should be adjusted so that it lies across your chest and midway over your shoulder near the door and not your neck.

To adjust the height of the seat belt anchor, lower or raise the height adjuster into an appropriate position.

To raise the height adjuster, pull it up (1). To lower it, push it down (3) while pressing the height adjuster button (2).

Release the button to lock the anchor into position. Try sliding the height adjuster to make sure that it has locked into position.

Improperly positioned seat belts can cause serious injuries in an accident.

WARNING - Shoulder belt positioning

Never position the shoulder belt across your neck or face.

WARNING - Seat belt replacement

Replace your seat belts after being in an accident. Failure to replace seat belts after an accident could leave you with damaged seat belts that will not provide protection in the event of another collision.

To fasten your seat belt:

To fasten your seat belt, pull it out of the retractor and insert the metal tab (1) into the buckle (2). There will be an audible “click” when the tab locks into the buckle.

The seat belt automatically adjusts to the proper length only after the lap belt portion is adjusted manually so that it fits snugly around your hips. If you lean forward in a slow, easy motion, the belt will extend and let you move around. If there is a sudden stop or impact, however, the belt will lock into position. It will also lock if you try to lean forward too quickly.

✽ NOTICE

If you are not able to pull out the seat belt from the retractor, firmly pull the belt out and release it. Then you will be able to pull the belt out smoothly.

WARNING

You should place the lap belt portion as low as possible and snugly across your hips, not on your waist. If the lap belt is located too high on your waist, it may increase the chance of injury in the event of a collision. Both arms should not be under or over the belt. Rather, one should be over and the other under, as shown in the illustration.

Never wear the seat belt under the arm near the door.

To fasten seat belts in the rear seats:

Pull the metal tab (3) and insert it into the buckle (4). There will be an audible “click” when the tab locks into the buckle. Make sure the belt is not twisted.

When using the rear center seat belt the buckle with the “CENTER” mark must be used.

WARNING

Always have the metal tab(A) inserted into the buckle (A’).

✽ NOTICE

If you are not able to pull out the safety belt from the retractor, firmly pull the belt out and release it. After release, you will be able to pull the belt out smoothly.

The seat belt should be locked into the buckle on each seat cushion to be properly fastened.

➀ : Rear right seat belt fastening buckle

➁ : Rear center seat belt fastening buckle

➂ : Rear left seat belt fastening buckle

To release the seat belt:

The seat belt is released by pressing the release button (A) in the locking buckle. When it is released, the belt should automatically draw back into the retractor.

If this does not happen, check the belt to be sure it is not twisted, then try again.

WARNING

Prior to fastening the rear seat belts, ensure the latch matches the seat belt buckle. Forcefully fastening the left or right seat belt to the center buckle can result in an improper fastening scenario that will not protect you in an accident.
