Hello people, I'm interested in what this second button is for, it seems to me to limit the kilometers, and what happens when you pass that number of kilometers that you set?

Hi

You are missing the detail of the decal that shows what the button does :cry:


It is the overspeed limiter button.

You get a warning gong when you exceed the set speed.

Can it happen that the check engine lights up because of that?

No, it has nothing to do with that.

The button is to set a maximum speed before a warning is given to alert the driver that they are going too quickly.

The left hand side of the button lights up amber to tell you the function is active when you push the button. Pressing the button again de-activates it.
As you are driving at the speed you wish the "alert" to sound (and the button is on), press and hold the button for about 3 seconds until you hear a "bing" sound. The alert is now reset to that speed.
Every time the set speed is exceeded (and the button is on) you will hear three beeps. It can get annoying!
Generally speaking, if you hear three beeps there is a warning or light on the dash. If you hear three beeps but there are no lights or warnings, check this button. Sometimes you can accidentally press the button and activate it unknowingly!
It's a cute feature but most people find it impractical and don't use it.
Many of the original buttons had a rubberized coating that just disintegrated over time (as you have witnessed). Later ones (spare parts) were painted.
