Kia Niro: Roadside Assistance / General information

Towing

In the event of an accident, The high voltage system must be disabled. The service plug must be removed from the high voltage battery according to one of the methods described in sections of page 17 to 20 to disable the vehicle.

Towing Niro is not different from towing conventional FWD (Front Wheel Drive) vehicle, although all wheels should be out of contact with the road.

If emergency towing is necessary, we recommend having it done by an authorized Kia dealer or a commercial tow-truck service. Proper lifting and towing procedures are necessary to prevent damage to the vehicle.The use of wheel dollies or flatbed is recommended.

  

Do not tow the vehicle backwards with the front wheels on the ground as this may cause damage to the vehicle.

Do not tow with sling-type equipment. Use wheel lift or flatbed equipment.

Never tow the vehicle with the rear/front wheels on the ground (forward or backward), as this may cause fire or damage to the motor.

To Jump Start the Car

Do not attempt to jump start the high voltage battery, it cannot be jump started.

In case of full discharge of the high voltage battery, the vehicle must be towed as mentioned on the previous page.

In case the 12V auxiliary battery is discharged, attach jumper cables or starting device to the jump terminal in the engine room as you would any 12V battery (see image).

Refer to “Emergency Starting” of Owner’s Manual for additional information. Connect jumper cables in numerical order and disconnect in reverse order.
