The engine does not start.


Failures codes reported by the DDE engine control unit.

507D – Parking lock deactivated erroneously.

CF37 – CAS messages in the wrong K bus.


If the engine fails to start, due to a voltage drop caused by an excessive requirement when starting the engine, either because of a low battery or because of keeping the ignition switched on over an extended period of time, this may be due to a lack of communication between the CAS (Car Access System) unit and the DDE (Digital Diesel Electronics) engine control unit.

NOTE: It should be noted that in this model, in case of a real problem with the CAS (Car Access System), the starter motor is not launched.
