Emergency Flasher
The emergency flasher can be switched on regardless of the position of the ignition lock.

Switching on and off

  • Press the emergency flasher button on the center console.

All turn signal lights, the indicator light in the button and the turn signal indicator lights on the tachometer flash when the button is operated.

If the emergency flasher remains active for longer periods, the illumination phase of the flashing interval is shortened to preserve the lights.

Emergency Stopping
Other vehicles could collide with your vehicle if you are parked in a dangerous position.

  • Whenever stalled or stopped for emergency repairs, move the car well off the road. Switch on the emergency flasher and mark the car with road flares or other warning devices.
  • Do not remain in the car. Someone approaching from the rear may not realize your vehicle is stopped and cause a collision.

Hot Exhaust System and Tailpipe
Exhaust fumes and the exhaust system are very hot when the engine is running. The exhaust system (including the tailpipe) remains hot for some time after the vehicle is turned off.

  • Do not park or operate the vehicle in areas where the hot exhaust system may come in contact with dry grass, brush, fuel spill or other flammable material.

Engine Heat Danger When Working
The engine and surrounding components become very hot when the engine is running.

  • Before working on any part in the engine compartment, turn the engine off and let it cool down sufficiently.

Light Fault or Failure
A message will appear on the multi-function display of the instrument panel if a vehicle light has a fault or fails.

For information on warning messages on the multi-function display:
