Activating and deactivating time setting for preconditioning*

A time setting in the timer for preconditioning can be activated or deactivated based on need.

P5-1646–Climate–Button preconditioning timer

The timer buttons in the Parking climate tab in the climate view.

Open the climate view in the centre display.

Select the Parking climate tab.

Activate/deactivate a time setting by tapping on the timer button to the right of the setting.

The time setting is activated/deactivated and the button illuminates/extinguishes.


Do not use preconditioning if the car is equipped with a heater*:

  • In unventilated spaces indoors. Exhaust gases are emitted if the heater starts.
  • In locations with combustible or flammable material nearby. Fuel, gas, long grass, sawdust, etc. may ignite.
  • When there is a risk that the heater’s exhaust line may be blocked. For example, deep snow inside the front right-hand wheel housing can obstruct the heater’s ventilation.

Remember that the preconditioning can be started by a timer that has been set for a long time in advance.
