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.
For recovery, the car is taken away with the help of another vehicle.
Fitting and removing the towing eye
Use the towing eye if the car shall tow another vehicle. The towing eye is screwed into a threaded socket behind a cover on the right-hand side of the rear bumper.
During towing, the car is towed by another vehicle by means of a towline.
