Issue

Issue:
On certain vehicles, the wiring for the side airbags in the second-row seat cushion assembly may be too long. As a result, the wiring could be damaged by contact with the seat frame when the seat is folded or adjusted. If this happens, the second-row seat side airbag(s) may not work properly in a side-impact crash.
Note: A damaged wiring harness can cause the airbag warning light to turn on.

Safety Risk:
An airbag that does not work properly could create an increased risk of injury in a crash.

Corrective Action:
Kia will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealership to inspect the left and right second-row seat side airbag wire harnesses for damage. If damage is found, the wiring harness(es) will be replaced. If no damage is found, the wire harness(es) will be secured to avoid contact with the seat frame when the seat is folded or adjusted.
