Illuminated ENGINE START/STOP button
The light will go off after about 30 seconds when the door is closed. It will also go off immediately when the theft-alarm system is armed.
ENGINE START/STOP button position
Your vehicle is equipped with four different ignition positions.
To turn off the engine (START/RUN position) or vehicle power (ON position), press the ENGINE START/STOP button with the gear in the P (Park) position.
When you press the ENGINE START/ STOP button without the gear in the P (Park) position, the ENGINE START/ STOP button will not change to the OFF position but to the ACC position.
Press the ENGINE START/STOP button while it is in the OFF position without depressing the brake pedal.
The steering wheel unlocks and electrical accessories are operational.
If the ENGINE START/STOP button is in the ACC position for more than 1 hour, the button is turned off automatically to prevent battery discharge.
Press the ENGINE START/STOP button while it is in the ACC position without depressing the brake pedal.
The warning lights can be checked before the engine is started. Do not leave the ENGINE START/STOP button in the ON position for a long time. The battery may discharge, because the engine is not running.
If you leave the ENGINE START/STOP button in the ACC or ON position for a long time, the battery will discharge.
To start the engine, depress the brake pedal and press the ENGINE START/ STOP button with the gear in the P (Park) or the N (Neutral) position. For your safety, start the engine with the gear in the P (Park) position.
If you press the ENGINE START/STOP button without pressing the brake pedal, the engine will not start and the ENGINE START/STOP button changes as follow: OFF? ACC ?ON ?OFF or ACC
This would result in loss of directional control and braking function, which could cause an accident.
Unexpected and sudden vehicle movement may occur if these precautions are not taken.
