Operation of the ENGINE START STOP switch

When operating the ENGINE START STOP switch, one short, firm press is enough. If the switch is pressed improperly, the engine may not start or the ENGINE START STOP switch mode may not change. It is not necessary to press and hold the switch.

CAUTION
■When starting the engine Always start the engine while sitting in the driver's seat. Do not depress the accelerator pedal while starting the engine under any circumstances.

Doing so may cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

■Caution while driving If engine failure occurs while the vehicle is moving, do not lock or open the doors until the vehicle reaches a safe and complete stop. Activation of the steering lock in this circumstance may lead to an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.

■Stopping the engine in an emergency If you want to stop the engine in an emergency while driving the vehicle, press and hold the ENGINE START STOP switch for more than 2 seconds, or press it briefly 3 times or more in succession.

However, do not touch the ENGINE START STOP switch while driving except in an emergency. Turning the engine off while driving will not cause loss of steering or braking control, but the power assist to these systems will be lost. This will make it more difficult to steer and brake, so you should pull over and stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so.

NOTICE
■To prevent battery discharge ●Do not leave the ENGINE START STOP switch in ACCESSORY or IGNITION ON mode for long periods of time without the engine running.

●If the smart key system indicator light (green) is illuminated, the ENGINE START STOP switch is not off. When exiting the vehicle, always check that the ENGINE START STOP switch is off.

●Do not stop the engine when the shift lever is in a position other than P. If the engine is stopped in another shift lever position, the ENGINE START STOP switch will not be turned off but instead be turned to ACCESSORY mode. If the vehicle is left in ACCESSORY mode, battery discharge may occur.

■When starting the engine ●Do not race a cold engine.

●If the engine becomes difficult to start or stalls frequently, have the engine checked immediately.

■Symptoms indicating a malfunction with the ENGINE START STOP switch
If the ENGINE START STOP seems to be operating somewhat differently than usual, such as the switch sticking slightly, there may be a malfunction.

Contact your Toyota dealer immediately.
