Starting the car
The car is started using the start knob in the tunnel console when the remote control key is in the passenger compartment.
- Fasten the seatbelt.
- Adjust the seat, steering wheel and mirrors.
- Make sure that the brake pedal can be fully depressed.
The remote control key is not physically used when starting the car since it is equipped with support for keyless starting (Passive start).
When the engine is started, the starter motor works until the engine is started or until its overheating protection triggers.
If the Car key not found message is shown in the driver display when starting, place the remote control key by the backup reader. Then try to start the car again.
If the engine fails to start after 3 attempts - wait for 3 minutes before making a further attempt. Starting capacity increases if the battery is allowed to recover.
Never remove the remote control key from the car while driving or during towing.
Always take the remote control key out from the car when leaving the car and make sure the car's electrical system is in ignition position 0 - especially if there are children in the car.
