Switching the engine off while the vehicle is moving makes it more difficult to stop the vehicle. This could lead to a loss of control over the vehicle as well as to accidents and serious injuries.
  • Braking and steering support systems, the airbag system, the belt tensioners as well as various items of safety equipment in the vehicle will only be active when the engine is running.
  • The engine should only be switched off when the vehicle is stationary.


The risk of serious injury can be reduced with the engine running or when starting the engine.
  • Never start or run the engine in unventilated or closed rooms. The exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, an odourless and colourless poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide can cause people to lose consciousness. It can also cause death.
  • Never leave the engine running if you leave the vehicle unattended. The vehicle could move suddenly or something unexpected may happen that may cause damage and serious injuries.
  • Never use a start booster. Start boosters could explode and cause the engine to suddenly rev.


The components of the exhaust system become very hot. This could lead to fires and serious injuries.
  • Never park the vehicle so that parts of the exhaust system can come into contact with any inflammable material underneath the vehicle, e.g. leaves, dry grass, spilt fuel.
  • Never apply underseal or anti-corrosion coatings to the exhaust pipes, catalytic converter, diesel particulate filter or the heat shields on the exhaust system.
