Indicator for selector lever position and engaged gear
When the engine is running, the selector lever position and engaged gear are indicated.
If the selector lever is between two positions
The corresponding selector-lever position in the instrument panel
flashes and the warning "Actuate brake" or "Selector lever not
engaged" appears on the on-board computer.
If the selector lever is inadvertently (due to a defect or incorrect operation) moved out of P or N into gear without pressing the brake, this gear will start to "flash" and no power transmission is built up. To drive off, press the brake and move the selector lever from P or N into the required gear again.
Selector-lever position R or D is flashing in the instrument cluster
If there is a fault in the transmission:
– The warning "Transmission emergency run" in white or red lettering or the warning "Transmission temperature too high" is
displayed on the on-board computer.
