In an angled collision, the force of
impact may direct the occupants in a
direction where the air bags would
not be able to provide any additional
benefit, and thus the sensors may
not deploy any air bags.

Just before impact, drivers often
brake heavily. Such heavy braking
lowers the front portion of the vehicle
causing it to "ride" under a vehicle
with a higher ground clearance. Air
bags may not inflate in this "under-
ride" situation because deceleration
forces that are detected by sensors
may be significantly reduced by such
"underride" collisions.

Front air bags may not inflate in
rollover accidents because air bag
deployment could not provide protec-
tion to the occupants.
However, side and curtain air bags
may inflate when the vehicle is rolled
over by a side impact collision.

Safety system of your vehicle

Air bags may not inflate if the vehicle
collides with objects such as utility
poles or trees, where the point of
impact is concentrated and the colli-
sion energy is absorbed by the vehi-
cle structure.

SRS Care 

The SRS is virtually maintenance-
free and there are no parts you can
safely service by yourself. If the SRS
air bag warning light does not illumi-
nate when the POWER button is in
the ON position, or continuously
remains on, have your vehicle imme-
diately inspected by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.
Any work on the SRS system, such
as removing, installing, repairing, or
any work on the steering wheel, the
front passenger's panel, front seats
and roof rails must be performed by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
Improper handling of the SRS system
may result in serious personal injury.

To reduce the risk of serious
injury or death, take the follow-
ing precautions:

Do not attempt to modify or
disconnect the SRS compo-
nents or wiring, including the
addition of any kind of badges
to the pad covers or modifica-
tions to the body structure.

Do not place objects over or
near the air bag modules on
the steering wheel, instrument
panel, or the front passen-
ger’s panel above the glove
box.

Clean the air bag pad covers
with a soft cloth moistened
with plain water. Solvents or
cleaners could adversely
affect the air bag covers and
proper deployment of the sys-
tem.

Always have inflated air bags
replaced by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.

Additional Safety Precautions 

Passengers should not move out
of or change seats while the vehi-
cle is moving.

A passenger who is

not wearing a seat belt during a
crash or emergency stop can be
thrown against the inside of the vehi-
cle, against other occupants, or be
ejected from the vehicle.

Do not use any accessories on
seat belts.

Devices claiming to

improve occupant comfort or reposi-
tion the seat belt can reduce the pro-
tection provided by the seat belt and
increase the chance of serious injury
in a crash.

Do not modify the front seats.

Modification of the front seats could
interfere with the operation of the
supplemental restraint system sens-
ing components or side air bags.

Do not place items under the front
seats.

Placing items under the front

seats could interfere with the opera-
tion of the supplemental restraint
system sensing components and
wiring harnesses.

Do not cause impact to the doors.

Impact to the doors when the
POWER button is in the ON position
may cause the air bags to inflate.

Modifications to accommodate
disabilities.

If you require modifica-

tion to your vehicle to accommodate
a disability, contact the HYUNDAI
Customer Connect Center at 800-
633-5151.

Adding equipment to or modify-
ing your air bag equipped vehicle

If you modify your vehicle by chang-
ing your vehicle's frame, bumper sys-
tem, front end or side sheet metal or
ride height, this may affect the opera-
tion of your vehicle's air bag system.

Air Bag Warning Labels 

Air bag warning labels, required by
the U.S. National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA), are
attached to alert the driver and pas-
sengers of potential risks of the air
bag system. Be sure to read all of the
information about the air bags that
are installed on your vehicle in this
Owners Manual.

If components of the air bag
system must be discarded, or if
the vehicle must be scrapped,
certain safety precautions
must be observed. Consult an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer for
the necessary information.
Failure to follow these precau-
tions could increase the risk of
personal injury.

Safety system of your vehicle

The active hood lift system can help
reduce risk of injury to pedestrians
by raising the hood in certain acci-
dent situations. The active hood lift
system has the additional deforma-
tion space under the hood, which is
made available for subsequent head
impact.

System activation

Prerequisite for activation

The POWER button is in the START
position and the vehicle speed is
between about 15.5 mph (25 km/h)
and 31 mph (50 km/h).

Information

Active hood lift system
repair

• If the active hood lift system has been

activated, do not place the hood back
by yourself. Have the system repaired
by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer. 

• If you change or repair the front

bumper, have the system checked by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

System activation

The active hood lift system is
designed to work in a frontal collision
depending on the intensity, speed or
angles of impact of the front collision.

The system will activate when:
• There is a frontal collision with a

pedestrian, an animal, an obstacle
or a vehicle and certain operation
conditions (intensity, speed, angle
of impact, etc.) are met.

System malfunction

If there is a problem with the system
a message will appear on the cluster
display.
This warning message means that
the protection of pedestrians by the
active hood lift system is not working
properly.
If the warning message is displayed,
have the system checked as soon as

Immobilizer System 

The immobilizer system protects
your vehicle from theft. If an improp-
erly coded key (or other device) is
used, the power system is disabled.
When the POWER button is placed
in the ON position, the immobilizer
system indicator should come on
briefly, then go off. If the indicator
starts to blink, the system does not
recognize the coding of the key.
Place the POWER button to the OFF
position, then place the POWER but-
ton to the ON position again.
In some circumstances, the vehicle
may not recognize your smart key if
another smart key device is nearby
or a metal object such as a key chain

smart key.
If this occurs, your vehicle may not
start. Remove any metal objects or
additional keys near the smart key
before attempting to start the vehicle
again.

If the system repeatedly does not
recognize the coding of the key, it is
recommended that you contact your
HYUNDAI dealer.
Do not attempt to alter this system or

problems could result that may make
your vehicle inoperable.

The transponder in your key is an
important part of the immobilizer
system. It is designed to give
years of trouble-free service, how-
ever you should avoid exposure to
moisture, static electricity and

Motor Driven Power Steering
(MDPS)

The system assists you with steering
the vehicle. If the vehicle is turned off
or if the power steering system
becomes inoperative, you may still
steer the vehicle, but it will require
increased steering effort.
Should you notice any change in the
effort required to steer during normal
vehicle operation, have the system
checked by an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer.

Information

The following symptoms may occur
during normal vehicle operation:

• The steering effort may be high

immediately after

placing the

POWER button in the ON position.

This happens as the system performs
the MDPS system diagnostics. When
the diagnostics is completed, the
steering wheel will return to its nor-
mal condition.

• When the battery voltage is low, you

might have to put more steering
effort. However, it is a temporary
condition so that it will return to nor-
mal condition after charging the bat-
tery.

• A click noise may be heard from the

MDPS relay after the POWER but-
ton is in the ON or OFF position.

• Motor noise may be heard when the

vehicle is at a stop or at a low driving
speed.

• When you operate the steering wheel

in low temperature, abnormal noise
may occur. If temperature rises, the
noise will disappear. This is a normal
condition.

• When an error is detected from the

MDPS, the assistant function of
steering effort will not be activated in
order to prevent fatal accidents.
Instrument cluster warning lights
may be on or the steering effort may
be high. When the following symp-
toms occur, immediately drive the
vehicle to a safe area and check it.

If the Motor Driven Power
Steering System does not oper-
ate normally, the warning light
(

) will illuminate on the

steer the vehicle, but it will
require increased steering
efforts. Take your vehicle to an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer and
have the system checked as
soon as possible.

CAUTION

While adjusting the steering
wheel height, please do not
push or pull it hard since the fix-
ture can be damaged.
