Emergency Response in case of Accident (ERA GLONASS) test procedure:
NOTES

Only applicable to Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan.

ERA GLONASS is an emergency response system. In the event of a traffic accident, the terminal automatically collects data on the exact location of the accident, time, and severity. The terminal transmits the data, with a high-priority alert, to an ERA-GLONASS operator. Once verified, this information is passed on to the emergency response services. The vehicle's driver and passengers can also contact an ERA-GLONASS operator manually.

The test procedure determines if the system is working correctly.

Make sure that the following conditions are met before starting the procedure:

  • The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is applied and has been stationary for a least 1 minute.

  • The vehicles's electric motor is started.

  • An emergency response call is not in progress.

  • Network reception is good.

Press the assistance call button for at least 3 seconds, but for less than 10 seconds.

After pressing the assistance call button for 3 seconds, also press the emergency call button for at least 3 seconds. The call button's LEDs flash amber as the test procedure starts and continue to flash until the test procedure ends.

The ERA GLONASS test procedure, prompts the user with the following:

  • Announce the start of test mode.

  • Announce lights check.

  • Announce microphone check.

  • Announce speaker check.

  • The results of test mode will be pronounced and displays in the instrument panel.

  • A call is made to ERA GLONASS test centre to record the test results.

The instrument panel displays the message SOS System Not Available if the system is faulty.

If all of the preparation conditions are met, and SOS System Not Available is displayed, contact a retailer/authorised repairer.

NOTES

The SOS System Not Available message is also displayed if there is no network reception. Move the vehicle to an area of good reception and retest.

The test procedure ends after 5 minutes if the electric motor is switched off, or if the vehicle is driven more than 300 m.

NOTES

If the test procedure is repeated, make sure there is a time delay of at least 5 minutes before retesting.
