How do I shut the engine off during an emergency?
Emergencies can occur for any number of reasons while you’re driving. Your car has a special emergency engine shut off procedure that you’ll need to follow if you find that you need to turn the engine off while you’re driving. Here’s how to do it:
Push the start switch three times, very quickly.
Press and then hold the start button for at least three seconds.
Don’t use the emergency engine shut off procedure unless there truly is an emergency.
Pull over well off the road after initiating the engine shut down procedure.
