Dear customer, the key symbol appears when a maintenance is required on your kia, basically comes out when you pass replacing the engine oil or when you replace it but did not erase the light through a diagnostic tool.

These indicators do not generate mechanical failures or performance problems, but you do require to do the maintenances or the reset of the light.

About the engine temperature message light, erasing the light with the diagnostic equipment will also turn off this message. As you do not have any signal of overheating it was a wrong signal generated in the sensor and it makes the light to lit up.

So, you do not have nothing to worry about and a simple diagnostic would sort out the problem and turn off the lights.

Have you understood me dear customer?
