Towing a vehicle with both axles on the ground

When having your vehicle towed, observe the important safety notes.

The power assistance for the steering and the WARNING
The power assistance for the steering and the brake force booster do not work when the engine is not running. You will then need much more effort to brake and steer the vehicle. Adapt your style of driving accordingly.

The automatic transmission automatically shifts to position P when you open the driver's or front-passenger door or when you remove the SmartKey from the ignition lock. In order to ensure that the automatic transmission stays in position N when towing the vehicle, you must observe the following points:
Ц Make sure that the vehicle is stationary and the SmartKey in the ignition lock is in position 0.
Ц Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.
On vehicles with KEYLESS-GO, use the key instead of the Start/Stop button.
Ц Depress and hold the brake pedal.
Ц Shift the automatic transmission to position N.
Ц Release the brake pedal.
Ц Release the electric parking brake.
Ц Switch on the hazard warning lamps.
Ц Leave the SmartKey in position 2 in the ignition lock.

When towing with the hazard warning When towing with the hazard warning lamps switched on, use the combination switch as usual to signal a change of direction. In this case, only the turn signals for the desired direction flash. When the combination switch is reset, the hazard warning lamps start flashing again.
