If there is a problem with the brake pedal while driving, emergency braking is possible by pulling up and holding the EPB switch. Braking is possible only while you are holding the EPB switch.

WARNING

Do not operate the electric parking brake while the vehicle is moving except in an emergency situation. Applying the electric parking brake while the vehicle is moving at normal speeds can cause a sudden loss of control of the vehicle. If you must use the electric parking brake to stop the vehicle, use great caution in applying the brake.

✽ NOTICE

During emergency braking by the EPB, the parking brake warning light will illuminate to indicate that the system is operating.

CAUTION

If you notice a continuous noise or burning smell when the EPB is used for emergency braking, have your vehicle checked by an authorized K900 Kia dealer.

When the EPB (electric parking brake) is not released

If the EPB does not release normally, take your vehicle to an authorized K900 Kia dealer by loading the vehicle on a flatbed tow truck and have the system checked.
