Start up sound

Post by cmr22 » Thu May 03, 2018 11:34 am

I picked up the new Kia Niro yesterday and first impressions are very good.
One thing that annoys me is the little tune that plays on start up, I’ve searced the hand book, and this forum, and also through all the menus on the dashboard, but can’t find a way to deactivate it. Has anyone managed to turn this off please?

It can't be turned off .. A lot of new cars today have this annoying tune or a Ding Ding Ding .. I think its just a phase on to days cars , in a few years it wont be there ..... Just like in the 80s when Rover had the talking dash board , that didn't last long .

The only question remaining is where along the dashboard one should apply the sledgehammer 🤔
