Continuous Mode function lets you remove the key from the ignition while leaving the engine running. This convenient
feature allows you to leave your vehicle for short periods while climate controls remain on.

performing the safety sequence described on page 4. See “STARTING the ENGINE“ on page 10.
Note: Do not send the stop command if you perform sequence activated by the remote control (Step

Remove the key, exit vehicle and lock all doors. All safety devices will remain active.
If you return to your vehicle before runtime has elapsed, just turn the key to RUN position and press the brake pedal.

This mode allows the engine to be left running at idle speed for a short period of time so that the turbocharger can cool down

To activate the Turbo Mode, press on the
(2 sec.) button (refer to ‘Continuous Mode’).
