2011 Audi Q5 / SQ5 — Owner's Manual
There must be at least 10 inches (25 cm) between your chest and the center of the steering wheel. If you cannot sit more than 10 inches (25 cm) from the steering wheel, see if adaptive equipment is available to help you reach the pedals and increase the distance from the steering wheel. By pressing the key without stepping on the brake, the ignition is switched on and off. With the ignition on, the steering wheel is unlocked.
You can only remove the key with the ignition switched off. To do this, you have to press on the key again. With an automatic transmission, the selector lever must be in the P position. When starting the engine, major electrical loads are switched off temporarily.
After starting a cold engine, there may be a brief period of increased noise because the oil pressure must first build up in the hydraulic valve adjusters. This is normal and not a cause for concern. If the engine should not start immediately, the starting process is automatically stopped after a short time. Repeat starting procedure.
This message appears if you do not step on the brake pedal to start the engine on a vehicle with an automatic transmission. This message appears when attempting to start the engine if the selector lever for the automatic transmission is not in the P or N position. The engine can only be started with the selector in these positions. This message appears for safety reasons along with a warning signal.
It appears if the selector lever for the automatic transmission is not in the P position after the ignition is switched off. Move the selector lever to the P position, otherwise, the vehicle is not secured against rolling away. You also cannot lock the vehicle using the locking button on the door handle or using the remote key.
