Whenever the front door is opened, the EV button will appear for your convenience.
The light will go off after about 30 seconds when the door is closed.
When all doors are closed, if you lock the vehicle by using the transmitter or the smart key, the light will go off immediately.
EV button position
The EV button has the following four positions.
To turn off the vehicle power (ON position), press the EV button with the shifter dial in the P (Park) position. When you press the EV button without the shifter dial in the P (Park) position, the EV button will not change to the OFF position but to the ACC position.
Press the EV button while it is in the OFF position without depressing the brake pedal.
If the EV button is in the ACC position for more than 1 hour, the button is turned off automatically to prevent battery discharge.
Press the EV button while it is in the ACC position without depressing the brake pedal.
The warning lights can be checked before the vehicle is started. Do not leave the EV button in the ON position for a long time. The battery may discharge, because the vehicle is not running.
To start the vehicle, depress the brake pedal and press the EV button with the shifter dial in the P (Park) position. For your safety, start the vehicle with the shifter dial in the P (Park) position.
If you press the EV button without depressing the brake pedal, the vehicle will not start and the EV button changes as follow:
Go to OFF → ACC → ON → OFF or ACC
If you leave the EV button in the ACC or ON position for a long time, the battery will discharge.
Never press the EV button while the vehicle is in motion except in an emergency. This would result in loss of directional control and braking function, which could cause an accident.
Leaving the Vehicle
To avoid unexpected or sudden vehicle movement, never leave your vehicle if the reduction gear is not locked in the P (Park) position and the parking brake is fully engaged. Before leaving the driver's seat, always make sure the reduction gear is engaged in P (Park), set the parking brake fully and shut the vehicle off.
