1.32. Automatic transmission


Work with an automatic transmission

For normal advance include a mode "D" (movement).

For transfer of the lever of switching of modes from the situation "R" (parking), it is necessary to turn the ignition key in the situation "ON", completely to press a pedal of a brake and to press the safety blocking button.

For smooth switching of the lever of switching of modes from the situation "N" (neutral) in the provision of advance or back completely press a brake pedal.


Do not press an accelerator pedal if the mode of a backing of "R" or any mode of advance is included, and the brake pedal is thus pressed.

For a car stop on lifting or descent do not use the engine. Use the basic or the parking brake.

Do not switch a movement mode from the situation "N" (neutral) or "R" (parking) in situation "1", "2", "D" (movement) or "R" (backing) if the engine has frequency of rotation above idling.

Transmission operating modes


Pressing the button of system of a lowering O/D broadcast, switch on and off system. When the system is switched off (the button is pressed), the control lamp of OFF burns (is switched off) O/D systems, and the range of transfers of a box is limited with the 1st on the 3rd. the 4th transfer will not join, while the O/D system button again will not be pressed.

If ignition is switched off, the mode of switching off of O/D system is automatically disconnected.


The control lamp in a combination of devices will light up, if the O/D system is switched off.


The blinking of a control lamp of switching off of O/D signals about malfunction in electric system of a transmission. If it happens, as soon as possible pass technical control at authorized dealer Kia.


Mode "R" (parking)

Switching in this mode will block a transmission and wheels. Completely stop the car before inclusion of this mode.


Mode "R" inclusion (parking) during movement will block forward wheels and the car becomes completely uncontrollable.

Mode "R" inclusion (parking) during movement can cause transmission damage.

Leaving the car, do not use the mode "R" (parking) instead of the parking brake. Be always convinced that the lever of switching of modes is in the situation "R" (parking), and it cannot be moved in other situation, without having pressed the safety button. The lever of the parking brake should be lifted up to the full. Always leaving the car, muffle the engine. Never leave the car without supervision with working engine. The car can begin movement with a place if not to observe these recommendations.

Mode "R" (backing)

Switch in it a mode for movement by a backing.


Before to include transfer of a backing of "R", be convinced that the car is completely stopped. At inclusion of the mode "R" it is possible to damage a transmission if the car moves.

Mode "N" (neutral)

In this mode are not blocked neither the engine, nor wheels. The car can get under way from a place even on flat descent if it is not braked by the basic or the parking brake.

Mode "D" (movement)

It is a mode for normal advance. The transmission will automatically choose one of four transfers, providing the best fuel profitability and engine capacity.

For achievement of bigger capacity, for example, when overtaking or when overcoming a steep slope, press an accelerator pedal to the full, and the transmission will be switched to the lowest transfer.

Mode "2"

This mode is necessary for including at slow movement in a dense steam of cars or lifting on a steep slope. This mode also provides braking by the engine at movement from descent and reduces pro-slipping of wheels on the slippery road.

Mode "1"

This mode is necessary for including, if the big traction effort is required at towage of other car or during movement on a steep slope or descent.

Troganiye from a place on a steep slope

For a troganiye from a place on a steep slope press a brake pedal, and the lever of switching of modes put in situation "D" (movement), "1" or "2" depending on loading of the car and a steepness of lifting and release the lever of the parking brake. Gradually press an accelerator pedal, at the same time releasing a pedal of the main brake.
