The battery positive (B+) terminal nut on the alternator may not have been tightened properly during assembly, possibly causing it to loosen over time.

If the alternator B+ terminal nut loosens, electrical arcing may result, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the alternator B+ terminal nut, tightening it -- as necessary -- free of charge.
