2. Press the SOS button until the LED in the button lights up.

▷ The LED lights up: an Emergency Request was initiated.
If the circumstances allow this, remain in the vehicle until the connection has been established.

▷ The LED flashes if the connection to the BMW Assist Response Center has been established.
Once the BMW Assist Response Center has received your Emergency Request, the BMW Assist Response Center contacts you and takes further steps to help you.

Even if you are unable to respond, the BMW Assist Response Center can take further steps to help you under certain circumstances.
For this purpose, data that are used to determine the necessary rescue measures, such as the current position of the vehicle if it can be established, are transmitted to the BMW Assist Response Center.

▷ If the LED is flashing but the BMW Assist Response Center cannot be heard on the hands-free system, the hands-free system may be malfunctioning. However, the BMW Assist Response Center may still be able to hear you.
