DBC defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition is turned on.

The DBC can be turned on or off by pushing the button.

✽ NOTICE

If the DBC red indicator light illuminates, the system has overheated or something is wrong. The DBC will not activate. If the DBC red indicator light illuminates even though the DBC system has been cooled enough have the system checked by an authorized Kia dealer.
