i had this issue, solved it by changing the switch on the clutch pedal. Not the easy access one but the one tucked up high and difficult to get to. the switch is about £40 form Kia. Took 20 mins to fit

Hi,

Have you pressed the Downhill Brake Control switch on the dash to see if the light goes out?

The following image is taken from the 2012 Kia Sportage owner manual. (You didn't state the model year so the switch may be in a different location)

If operating and releasing the switch makes no difference and you have traveled faster than 40 m.p.h. and the light is still on, then the DBC system may be faulty. Take it to a dealer and get it checked out.

Hi,

If the dealer can't fix it (or doesn't know how to) contact Kia in your country and ask what the problem could be or contact another dealer.

They should have the service manuals and equipment to diagnose what the problem is, more than anyone else.

Hi @ chris mc millan

Here’s some images taken from the iX35 owner manual that explains how to use the DBC (Downhill Brake Control) and how it can be manually activated etc.

If it isn’t manually enabled by you operating the switch then you need to take it to a dealer as they should have the service manuals and equipment to diagnose what the problem is.
