Kia Optima: SRS Care - Airbag-advanced supplemental restraint system - Safety features of your vehicle - Kia Optima TF 2011-2019 Owners ManualKia Optima: SRS Care

The SRS is virtually maintenance-free and so there are no parts you can safely service by yourself. If the SRS air bag warning light does not illuminate, or continuously remains on, have your vehicle immediately inspected by an authorized Kia dealer.

Any work on the SRS system, such as removing, installing, repairing, or any work on the steering wheel must be performed by an authorized Kia dealer. Improper handling of the SRS system may result in serious personal injury.
