Remote start (ERS) - symbols and messages

Updated 7/23/2018

Remote start (ERS – Engine Remote Start) means that the car's engine can be started remotely using the remote control key or the PCC key. This is so that the passenger compartment can be warmed up/cooled down before departure.

In situations where the ERS function fails or is interrupted, a symbol is shown in the combined instrument panel, supplemented by an explanatory text message.
