Hi guys,

I get starting engine sign on dashboard after a long drive. Apart from this sign I don't see any problem while driving. I would appreciate your help in this regards.

Very normal, it applies even in E-mode.

It sometimes takes a bit longer, my understanding is the vehicle is doing a more extended test, possibly an electrical isolation test.

Can be annoying if you've shifted into drive too early as it won't start if you do that.

Thanks and it's clear

Yeah I get it very occasionally in mine. I've got a key start though on mine and I tend to turn the ignition on first for a few seconds and then turn it the last bit to "start" it. Probably a hangover from having a diesel years ago 🤣
