Pre-conditioning through Remote Engine Start

Principle
Pre-conditioning cools or heats the car’s interior prior to departure to a comfortable temperature. The system automatically cools, vents, and heats depending on the interior, external, and set temperature. Snow and ice may be removed more easily.
The system starts the engine automatically and allows it to run for a limited period of time.

Safety information

DANGER
If the exhaust pipe is blocked or ventilation is in‐sufficient, harmful exhaust gases can pollute the area in and around the vehicle or enter into the vehicle. The exhaust gases contain pollutants which are colorless and odorless. In enclosed areas or areas with insufficient ventilation, exhaust gases can also accumulate outside of the vehicle. There is danger to life. Keep the exhaust pipe free and ensure sufficient ventilation. Do not switch on stationary cli‐mate control in enclosed areas or areas with in‐sufficient ventilation, e.g. in enclosed garages.

Warning
When stationary climate control is in operation, high temperatures can occur underneath the body, for instance caused by the exhaust gas system. If combustible materials, such as leaves or grass, come in contact with hot parts of the exhaust gas system, these materials can ignite. There is a risk of fire. Make sure that no combustible materials can come in contact with hot vehicle parts during stationary climate control operation, e.g. leaves, grass, gas, gasoline, oil or other combustible objects.
