Locking and unlocking

Central locking

You can only centrally lock the doors if they are all closed.

Note: The drivers door can be unlocked with the key. This needs to be used if the remote control is not functioning.

Note: Central locking also locks and unlocks the fuel filler flap.

WARNING:
Do not activate double locking when persons or animals are inside the vehicle. You will not be able to unlock the doors from the inside if you have double locked them.

Double locking is a theft protection feature that prevents someone from opening the doors from the inside. You can only double lock the doors if they are all closed.

Locking and unlocking confirmation

When you unlock the doors, the direction indicators will flash once.

When you lock the doors, the direction indicators will flash twice.

Note: The direction indicators will flash twice as soon as you activate central locking. They will not flash again when you press the lock button on the remote control or turn the key for the second time, i.e. when you activate double locking.
