Tips
On
steep
inclines,
especially
when
in
trailer
mode,
the
vehicle
may
roll
backwards
unin-
tentionally
when
starting
to
drive.
To
reduce
the
risk
of
this
happening,
pull
and
hold
the
switch
while
pressing
the
accelerator
pedal.
If
enough
drive
power
has
built up
at
the
wheels
and
the
vehicle
does
not
roll
backwards,
then
release
the
switch
to
start
to
drive.
If
you
leave
the
vehicle
when
“D”
or
“R”
are
engaged,
the
parking
brake
will
be
set
auto-
matically.
Noises
when
the
parking
brake
is
set
and
re-
leased
are
normal
and
are
not
a
cause
for
concern.
The
parking
brake
goes
through
a
self-test
cycle
at
regular
intervals
when
the
vehicle
is
stopped.
Any
noises
associated
with
this
are
normal.
Emergency
braking
function
Emergency
braking
should
only
be
used
in
an
emergency,
if
the
standard
brake pedal
is
mal-
functioning
or
obstructed.
When
the
emergency
braking
function
is
activated,
the
braking
effect
is
similar
to
a
heavy
braking
maneuver.
>
Pull
and
hold
the
@)
switch
while
driving.
»
An
audio
warning
signal
will
sound

gency
braking
will

you
press
the
accelerator
pedal,
emergency
braking
will
be
canceled.
