Kia Picanto Theft Alarm System

    Kia Picanto Theft Alarm System is an electronic device installed in a vehicle in an attempt to discourage theft of the vehicle itself, its contents, or both

    Vehicles equipped with a theft alarm system will have a label attached to the vehicle with the following words:

    1. WARNING
    2. SECURITY SYSTEM
    Security System

    This system is designed to provide protection from unauthorized entry into the car. This system is operated in three stages: the first is the “Armed” stage, the second is the “Theft-alarm” stage, and the third is the “Disarmed” stage. If triggered, the system provides an audible alarm with blinking of the hazard warning lights.

    Armed stage

    Using the smart key

    Park the vehicle and stop the engine. Arm the system as described below.

    1. Turn off the engine.
    2. Make sure that all doors (and tailgate) and the engine bonnet are closed and latched.
    3. Lock the doors by pressing the button of the front outside door handle with the smart key in your possession.
      After completion of the steps above, the hazard warning lights operate once to indicate that the system is armed. If any door remains open, the doors won’t lock and the chime will sound for 3 seconds. Close the door and try again to lock the doors. If tailgate or engine bonnet remains open, the hazard warning lights won’t operate and theft- alarm will not arm. After this, if the tailgate and engine bonnet are closed, the hazard warning lights will blink once.
      Lock the doors by pressing the lock button on the smart key. After completion of the steps above, the hazard warning lights will operate once to indicate that the system is armed. If any door (and tailgate) or engine bonnet remains open, the hazard warning lights won’t operate and theft-alarm will not arm.

    • A door is opened without using the transmitter (or smart key).
    • The tailgate is opened without using the transmitter (or smart key).
    • The engine bonnet is opened.

    The horn will sound and the hazard warning lights will blink continuously for approximately 30 seconds. To turn off the system, unlock the doors with the transmitter (or smart key).
