Fault in the steering system
The steering wheel cannot be unlocked if there is a fault in the electronic steering lock.
If the symbol flashes in the display, there is a malfunction in the electronic steering lock. The symbol is accompanied by a driver message giving you more information about the fault. This message will disappear after about 5 seconds, but you can call it up again at any time by pressing the SET button:
Do not drive vehicle. Steering defective
– You should obtain professional assistance.
– Do not have the vehicle towed away.
The vehicle must not be towed if there is a fault in the electronic steering lock: the steering will be locked and the vehicle cannot be steered. Towing a vehicle with locked steering can cause an accident.
On some models the symbol may look slightly different.
