Fault on the engine oil level sensor

 

 illuminates

Message:

Oil sensor: please visit workshop.

OIL SENSOR WORKSHOP

Immediately drive to the nearest specialist garage with appropriate caution.

CAUTION

If it is not possible to top up with engine oil, 

 stop driving - there is a risk of

engine damage! Switch off the engine and seek assistance from a specialist

garage.

 Lamp failure

Read and observe   on page 38 first.

 

 illuminates - one of the lamps is faulty.

A message will appear in the display about the affected lamp.

 Particulate filter

Read and observe   on page 38 first.

The particulate filter separates and burns the soot particles from the exhaust.

 

 illuminates - the filter is clogged with soot.

To clean the filter, if allowed by the traffic conditions 

» 

, you should drive at a

speed between 50-120 km/h in the recommended gear.
If the filter is properly cleaned, the warning light  extinguishes.
If the indicator light  does not go out within 30 minutes, the filter was not

cleaned.

Immediately drive to the nearest specialist garage with appropriate caution.

WARNING

Always adjust the speed and driving style to the actual weather, road, ter-

rain and traffic conditions.

The particulate filter reaches very high temperatures - there is a fire haz-

ard and serious injury could be caused. Therefore, never stop the vehicle at

places where the underside of your vehicle can come into contact with

flammable materials, such as dry grass, undergrowth, leaves, spilled fuel or

the like.

CAUTION

As long as the warning light  illuminates, one must take into account an

increased fuel consumption and a power reduction of the engine.

As long as the indicator light  is lit, the START-STOPfunction is not availa-

ble.

Note

We encourage you to avoid constant short journeys. This supports the correct

function of the particulate filter.

 Windscreen washer fluid level

Read and observe   on page 38 first.

 

 illuminates - the windscreen washer fluid level is too low.

Unlocking and opening

Unlocking and locking

Introduction

The vehicle is equipped with a central locking system which makes it possible

to unlock / lock all the doors, the fuel filler flap and boot lid simultaneously.
The door unlocking can be adjusted individually 

» page 54

.

The unlocking of the vehicle is displayed by the turn signal lights flashing

twice.
If you unlock the vehicle and do not open a door or the boot lid within the next

45 seconds, the vehicle will lock again automatically.
The locking of the vehicle is displayed by the turn signal lights flashing once.
If the driver's door has been opened, the vehicle cannot be locked.
If the doors or the boot lid remain open after the vehicle doors have been

locked, the turn signal lights do not flash until they have been closed.

WARNING

Never leave the key in the vehicle when you exit the vehicle. Unauthorised

persons (e.g. children) could lock the vehicle, turn on the ignition or start

the engine - danger of injury and accidents!

When leaving the vehicle, never leave persons who are not completely in-

dependent, such as children, unattended in the vehicle. These individuals

might not be able to leave the vehicle on their own or to help themselves.

Can be fatal at very high or very low temperatures!

CAUTION

Each key contains electronic components; therefore it must be protected

against moisture and severe shocks.

Keep the key grooves clean. Impurities (textile fibres, dust etc.) have a nega-

tive effect on the functionality of the locking cylinder and ignition lock.

Anti-theft alarm system

Introduction

The alarm system triggers audible and visual signals if an attempt is made to

break into the vehicle (hereafter referred to as alarm).
The alarm system is activated automatically approximately 30 seconds after

the vehicle is locked. This is automatically disabled after release.

CAUTION

Before leaving the vehicle, check that all doors and windows are closed in or-

der to ensure that the alarm system is fully operational.

Note

The alarm system has its own power source, whose service life is 5 years. In

order to ensure functionality of the alarm system, we recommend that you get

the alarm checked after this time by a specialist garage.

Alarm trigger

Read and observe   on page 56 first.

The alarm is triggered when one of the following unauthorised actions is acti-

vated on the vehicle with an activated warning system.

Opening the bonnet.

Opening the boot lid.

Opening the doors.

Manipulation of the ignition lock.

Towing the vehicle.

Movement in the vehicle.

Sudden and significant voltage drop of the electrical system.

Uncoupling the trailer.

An alarm is triggered also when the driver's door is unlocked and opened by

the lock cylinder.
The alarm is switched off by pressing the  button on the key or switching on

the ignition.

Interior monitor and towing protection

Read and observe   on page 56 first.

The interior monitor detects movements inside the locked vehicle and then

These functions should be deactivated if there is a possibility that the alarm

will be triggered by movements (e.g. by people or animals) within the vehicle

interior or if the vehicle has to be transported (e.g. by train or ship) or towed.

Force limiter

Read and observe   and   on page 57 first.

If there is an obstacle, the closing process is stopped and the window goes

down by several centimetres.
If the obstacle prevents the window from being closed during the next 10 sec-

onds, the closing process is interrupted once again and the window goes down

by several centimetres.
If you attempt to close the window again within 10 seconds of the window be-

ing moved down for the second time, even though the obstacle was not yet

been removed, the closing process is only stopped. During this time it is not

possible to automatically close the window. The force limiter is still switched

on.
The force limiter is only not operational if you attempt to close the window

again within the next 10 seconds – the window will now close with full force!
If you wait longer than 10 seconds, the force limiter is switched on again.

WARNING

The front passenger window with the electric window has no force limiter.

The windows should nevertheless be closed carefully – risk of injury!

Operational faults

Read and observe   and   on page 57 first.

Repeatedly opening and closing the window can cause the window mechanism

to overheat and become temporarily blocked. You will be able to operate the

window again as soon as the operating mechanism has cooled down.

dow can be deactivated. In this case, the system must be activated as follows.

Activating window operation

Switch on the ignition.

Pull the top edge of the button and close the window.
