INSTRUMENTENGRUPPE

The instrument panel displays information, warnings, and menu options to the driver. See WARNLEUCHTEN UND ANZEIGEN.

Use the Display and Units instrument panel menus to configure the instrument panel to display in miles or km (except Australia). The temperature and tyre pressure units can also be configured. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.

The components of the instrument panel are as follows:

  1. Information panel: Displays information and menu selection options.

    To configure the information panel display to suit personal preferences, use the Display and Info panel instrument panel menus.

  2. Speedometer: Displays the current vehicle speed. The digital speedometer can be configured to display in mph or km/h (except Australia). Select the Digital speedometer option via the Display and Units instrument panel menus.

  3. Tachometer: Displays the current engine speed, i.e., revolutions per minute (rpm).

  4. Temperature gauge: Displays the current engine temperature.

    If the pointer moves onto the red line, the engine is overheating. In this event, the instrument panel illuminates the red engine temperature warning lamp. See MOTORTEMPERATUR (ROT).

    If the engine overheats, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits. Allow the engine to idle until the temperature reduces. If the temperature does not reduce after several minutes, switch the engine off and allow it to cool. If the problem persists, seek qualified assistance immediately.

    CAUTION

    Serious engine damage occurs if the vehicle is driven while the engine is overheating.

    NOTES

    In the event of the engine overheating, a reduction in engine performance may occur. The Air Conditioning (A/C) system may also cease operation, to reduce the load on the engine and assist with engine cooling.

  5. Fuel gauge: Displays the current fuel tank level.

    An arrow head symbol, next to the fuel pump symbol, indicates which side of the vehicle the fuel filler flap is located.

    If the instrument panel illuminates the amber low fuel warning lamp, refuel the vehicle as soon as possible. See WARNUNG NIEDRIGER KRAFTSTOFFSTAND (GELB).

    To view the approximate driving distance for the current fuel level, use the trip button to select the Range trip computer menu. See VERWENDEN DES BORDCOMPUTERS.

    CAUTION

    Never allow the engine to run out of fuel. Doing so may cause serious damage to the vehicle's fuel system.
