ing these functions and systems, the applicable
laws and regulations must be observed.

tery. Replacing the battery, refer to page 79.

mote control. Driver profile, refer to page 92.

doors from the inside and lock themselves in. In
this case, the vehicle cannot be opened from
the outside. There is a risk of injury. Take the

cle while being exposed to extreme tempera‐
tures are at risk of injury or death. Do not lock
