German term or phrase: stehender Motor
Die programmierbare Zusatzheizung kann bei stehendem oder laufendem Motor betrieben werden.

Is saying "The programmable auxiliary heating system can be operated when the engine is on or off" saying too much? I am concerned about this "stehender oder laufender Motor" bit.
