Transmission position P with the ignition Transmission position P with the ignition off

When the ignition is switched off, position P is engaged automatically. When in an automatic car wash, for example, ensure that the ignition is not switched off accidentally.

Ignition automatically cuts off while the vehicle is stationary and the engine is stopped:

▷ During locking, also with the low beams activated.

▷ Shortly before the battery is discharged completely, so that the engine can still be started. This function is only available when the low beams are switched off.

▷ When opening and closing the driver door, if the driver's seat belt is unbuckled and the low beams are switched off.

▷ While the driver's seat belt is unbuckled, if the driver's door is open and the low beams are switched off.

When the ignition is switched off, by opening or closing the driver's door or unbuckling the driver's seat belt, the radio ready state remains active.
