SOS EMERGENCY CALL

There are two states of SOS emergency call: Automatic and manual operation.

In a crash situation, where the air bags have deployed, an automatic emergency call is made to the emergency services. In a non-crash situation, when emergency assistance is required, the emergency call button can be used manually.

In both states, the button flashes yellow until the emergency services answer the call, at which point the flashing stops.

The vehicle's location, owner details, vehicle details, and the problem are automatically sent to the call center. The appropriate emergency services are despatched to the vehicle's location. Contact with the emergency services agent can be made, at any time, by pressing the SOS emergency call button.

The SOS emergency call button is located in the overhead console, on the right side. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

To make a direct call to the emergency services:

  1. Press and release the button's cover.

  2. A red LED illuminates in the button.

  3. Press the button for 3 seconds to make a direct call to the emergency services.

  4. After use, push the button's cover back into place.

NOTES

If the vehicle is traveling in a different country, the SOS emergency call may still connect. However, the vehicle’s location and the vehicle's details may not be automatically sent to the local provider.

There is a single battery that maintains full system operation in the event that the vehicle's battery is disconnected or disabled. The battery is guaranteed for the vehicle's warranty period. If the battery requires replacement, the instrument panel displays a warning message. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer for a replacement battery.

If a fault is detected with the SOS emergency call system, the instrument panel displays a warning message. If this occurs, the vehicle can still be driven, but consult a retailer/authorized repairer at the earliest opportunity.
