FAHRERAUSSTIEG

During an auto stop, the driver exit feature prevents the vehicle from being inadvertently left in a driveable condition. If the feature detects that the driver is not present, it automatically switches off the vehicle's ignition system. Once the vehicle's ignition is switched off, the vehicle can be locked, if required. See BESTÄTIGUNG DER VERRIEGELUNG.

NOTES

The driver exit feature is only active when an auto stop has taken place and the engine is not running.

WARNING

If the vehicle is left in a driveable condition with the engine running, the driver exit feature does not prevent the vehicle from moving. Failure to make sure the vehicle is left in a safe condition could lead to serious injury or death.
