When travelling the device can be switched off and on again pressing switch ASR OFF on the centre console.

Switching on is indicated by the relevant message on the reconfigurable multifunction display (where provided) (see section Warning lights and messages).

When the device is switched off this is shown by the lighting up of the led on the ASR OFF button and by the message on the reconfigurable multifunction display (see section Warning lights and messages).
