Emergency detection of remote control

It is possible to switch on the ignition or start the engine in situations such as the following:

▷ Interference of radio transmission to remote control by external sources.

▷ Discharged battery in the remote control.

▷ Interference of radio transmission by mobile devices in close proximity to the remote control.

▷ Interference of radio transmission by charger while charging items such as mobile devices in the vehicle.

A Check Control message is displayed if an attempt is made to switch on the ignition or start the engine.
