Parking the vehicle
Position P is engaged automatically and, if fitted, the electronic parking brake is applied when:
- the engine is stopped;
- the driver’s seatbelt is unbuckled and the vehicle is stopped;
- the driver’s door is opened and the vehicle is stopped.
P is displayed on the instrument panel.
As position P is automatically engaged when the engine is stopped, in some situations (e.g. when using some car washes) it may be necessary to engage position N:
- With the engine running, press the P button, move the selector lever 1 one notch upwards or downwards to change to position N, then stop the engine;
- with the engine off and the ignition on, move the selector lever 1 one notch upwards or downwards then switch off the ignition.
The next time the engine is restarted, position P is engaged automatically according to the cases described earlier.
In the event of an engine fault or an electrical fault (battery fault, etc.), make sure that the vehicle is properly immobilised.
P position must only be engaged when the vehicle is stationary.
For safety reasons, do not switch off the ignition before the vehicle has come to a complete standstill.
An impact to the underside of the vehicle while manoeuvring (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or other street furniture) may result in damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.
