The Safety Triangle
The safety triangle is located on top of the dashboard in the centre and is the position for many of the electrical buttons that control other car functions.
Your safety triangle will definitely have:
Central locking button – horse shoe shape button at the back. This locks the doors.
Hazard lights – red semi circle button. This flashes all indicators and the button.
Depending on the smart model and the options, your safety triangle may also have:
Rear screen heater button – located far left, heats the rear screen.
Passenger heated seat button – one of the middle pair, 2 stage seat heater.
Drivers heated seat button – one of the middle pair, 2 stage seat heater.
Air conditioning – located far right, activates the 2 stage air conditioning.
Using The Safety Triangle Buttons
Pressing and holding the central locking button will lock both doors as long as they are both closed. A light will illuminate on the switch.
Pressing the hazard light button flashes the indicators and is primarily designed to draw attention to the vehicle if it should break down. Pressing the button again turns them off.
Pressing the rear screen heater button illuminates the button and gently heats the rear window to remove any condensation or mist. If you have electric adjustable mirrors, these will also be heated when this button is pressed.
Pressing either of the heated seat buttons activates the seat heating elements.
A single press illuminates one light and the seat is heated at half power, pressing the button once again illuminates a second light and the associated seat will be heated using full power. Pressing the button again turns the seat heater off.
Pressing the air conditioning button activates the air conditioning.
A single press illuminates one light and the air conditioning will run at half power, pressing the button again will illuminate a second light and the air conditioning will be running at full power. Pressing the button again turns the air conditioning off.
When the light stalk switch is rotated passed position 1, all the icons on the safety triangle buttons will illuminate. This lighting is separate to the illumination that occurs when a button is pressed.
