Safety mode is a protective state that is triggered when a collision may have damaged any of the car's vital functions, such as the fuel lines, sensors for any of the safety systems, or the brake system.
Starting and moving the car after safety mode
If the car is in safety mode, it is possible to attempt to reset the system in order to start and move the car for a short distance, if in a dangerous traffic situation for example.
Activate the hazard warning flashers and, if possible, move the car out of danger from traffic. Do not attempt to restart the car if there is a smell of fuel when the driver display shows the message Safety modeSee Owner's manual. If so, leave the car at once!
