The emergency controls are a set of features that turn on when your vehicle has been in an accident. When the air bags inflate, all of the doors will unlock, the interior lights will come on, the hazard lights will flash, the fuel system will shut off. This makes your car as safe as possible following an accident. You can turn off any of these features by using the controls.
