Kia Forte 2019-2021 (BD) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Engine start/stop button / Starting the engine

WARNING

Starting the engine

1. Carry the smart key or place it inside the vehicle.

2. Make sure the parking brake is firmly applied.

3. Manual Transmission - Depress the clutch pedal fully and shift the transmission into Neutral. Keep the clutch pedal and brake pedal depressed while starting the engine.

You can also start the engine when the shift lever is in the N (Neutral) position.

5. Do not wait for the engine to warm up while the vehicle remains stationary. Start driving at moderate engine speeds. (Extreme and/or excessive accelerating and decelerating should be avoided.)

Starting and stopping the engine for turbocharger intercooler

1. Do not race or accelerate the engine immediately after starting. If the engine is cold, idle for several seconds to ensure sufficient lubrication in the turbocharger unit.

2. After high speed or extended driving, requiring a heavy engine load, idle the engine about 1 minute before turning it off. This idle time will allow the turbocharger to cool prior to shutting the engine off.

CAUTION

Do not turn the engine off immediately after it has been subjected to a heavy load. Doing so may cause severe damage to the engine or turbocharger unit.

Starting the engine with smart key

WARNING

The engine will start only when the smart key is in the vehicle. Never allow children or any person who is unfamiliar with the vehicle touch the engine start/stop button or related parts. Pushing the engine start/stop button while the smart key is in the vehicle may result in unintended engine activation and/or unintended vehicle movement.

CAUTION

If the engine stalls while the vehicle is in motion, do not attempt to move the shift lever to the P (Park) position. If the traffic and road conditions permit, you may put the shift lever in the N (Neutral) position while the vehicle is still moving and press the engine start/stop button in an attempt to restart the engine.
