Find out the statutory maximum speed limit for towing before the towing begins.
Preparations and towing
Note that the car must always be towed with the wheels rolling forward.
- Do not tow cars with automatic transmission at speeds higher than 80 km/h (50 mph) or for distances in excess of 80 km (50 miles).
- Check that the steering lock is unlocked before towing.
- Ignition position II must be active - in ignition position I all airbags are deactivated.
- Always keep the remote control key in the car when it is being towed.
Put the car in the ignition position II - turn the start knob clockwise without pressing the brake pedal or clutch pedal for cars with manual gearbox, and hold the start knob for approx. 4 seconds. Then release the knob, which automatically returns to its starting position.
Move the gear selector to neutral position and release the parking brake.
If the battery voltage is too low, the parking brake cannot be disengaged. Connect a donor battery if the battery voltage is too low.
Do not tow the car to jump start the engine. Use a donor battery if the starter battery is discharged and the engine does not start.
