CONTINUOUS IDLING MODE <PHEV>


The vehicle can switch to the continuous idling mode by the following procedures:

  1. Operate the electric motor switch with the brake pedal depressed, and start the electric motor unit.
  2. Press the battery charge switch for a while and start the engine.
note The continuous idling mode can be turned off by pressing the battery charge switch, or by turning OFF the power supply mode of the electric motor switch.
note The racing can be performed with the charging status that is 60% or less. For checking the charging status, use the BMU data list item No. 1 on the M.U.T.-III [Charge state (control)]. When the charging status becomes 30% or less, the electrical load should increase for electricity generation.
note When the racing is continued for more than the specified time, the engine-ECU closes the throttle valve and restricts the engine speed to protect the engine.
