SEAT Leon Service and Repair Manual / Maintenance / Description of work / Transport mode, factory mode and production mode: deactivate using the vehicle diagnostic and service information system

NOTICE This model has no "factory mode".

The transportation mode is responsible for assuring the starting capability of vehicle.

Battery discharging is reduced by the transportation mode, because electrical consumers are switched off.

All vehicle functions which are not necessarily used during vehicle transportation and require no-load voltage or battery capacity are switched off with the activated transportation mode, with regard to the service life of battery.

These are especially all functions in the vehicle which can reduce the battery capacity when being misused.

Examples are radios, electronically operated flaps and attachments and anti-theft alarm systems which can produce faults during transportation.
