Checking the Parking Brake

Check the stroke of the parking brake by counting the number of clicks heard

Also, the parking brake alone should securely hold the vehicle on a fairly steep grade. If the number of clicks is more or less than specified, have the parking brake adjusted by an authorized Kia dealer or another competent repair center.

Stroke:

5~9 clicks at a force of 44 lbs (196N).
