Moving off

  • Apply the parking brake.
  • Select position P or N.
  • Start the engine.

If this procedure is not followed, there is an audible signal, accompanied by the display of an warning message.

  • With the engine running, press the brake pedal.
  • Release the parking brake.
  • Select position R, D or M.
  • Gradually release the brake pedal.

The vehicle moves off immediately.

When carrying out maintenance with the engine running, apply the parking brake and select position P .
