CAUTION

  • When the push-button ignition switch is left in “ON” (while the engine is not running) or “ACC” for a long time, it may result in vehicle battery discharge.
  • Do not spill drinks or other liquids on the push-button ignition switch. It may cause a malfunction.
  • Do not touch the push-button ignition switch with a hand soiled with oil or other contaminants. It may cause a malfunction.
  • If the push-button ignition switch does not operate smoothly, stop the operation. Contact a SUBARU dealer immediately.
  • If the push-button ignition switch does not illuminate even when the instrument panel illumination is turned on, have the vehicle inspected at a SUBARU dealer.
  • If the vehicle was left in the hot sun for a long time, the surface of the push-button ignition switch may get hot. Be careful not to burn yourself.

NOTE

  • When operating the push-button ignition switch, firmly press it all the way.
  • If the push-button ignition switch is pressed quickly, the power may not turn on or off.
  • If the indicator light on the pushbutton ignition switch flashes in green when the push-button ignition switch is pressed, steering is locked. When this occurs, press the push-button ignition switch while turning the steering wheel left and right.
