Key positions - functions at different levels
To enable the use of a limited number of functions with the engine switched off, the car's electrical system can be set in 3 different levels - 0, I and II - with the remote control key. This owner's manual describes these levels throughout using the denomination "key positions".
The following table shows the functions available in each key position/level.
This key position consumes a lot of current from the starter battery and should therefore be avoided!
Selecting key position/level
- Key position 0 - Unlock the car - This means that the car's electrical system is at level 0.
To reach level I or II without starting the engine - do not depress the brake/clutch pedal when these key positions are due to be selected.
- Key position I - With the remote control key fully inserted into the ignition switch 1 - Briefly press START/STOP ENGINE.
- Key position II - With the remote control key fully inserted into the ignition switch1 - Give a long 2 press on START/STOP ENGINE.
- Back to key position 0 - To return to key position 0 from position II and I - Briefly press on START/STOP ENGINE.
