Locating ADAS Information: Kia

As a collision repair technician, there is one part of a service manual that houses all of the information you would ever need…right? This is not the case with modern vehicles. You may be required to look in numerous manuals to find the information required to safely repair the vehicle.

The Repairability Technical Support (RTS) Portal has videos posted to show you how to navigate specific OEM body repair manuals (BRMs), but this sometimes just gets you in the door. If you are looking for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) information in the BRM, you may not find any information at all. ADAS information is not normally located in the body repair manual. You may have to go into the service manual to find ADAS or a separate manual altogether. Luckily, the RTS team has already navigated most of the OEM repair manuals and we’ve found the ADAS information. Let’s see where to find ADAS information from Kia.

After logging in you will want to access the Shop manual instead of the Body manual. There are three categories that may house ADAS information. The first is the Engine Electrical System. Here is where information for the adaptive cruise control system will be found. The Brake System area of the manual house both the collision warning and collision braking information. Lastly, the Body Electrical System portion of the manual is home to any additional ADAS. This includes, but is not limited to, lane departure warning, blind spot detection, and park assist.

In addition, starting in 2019 certain models have a dedicated area in the service manual titled Advanced Driver Assistance System which houses all of the ADAS information in one place.
