Programming the remote control

A maximum of eight remote controls (including any supplied with your vehicle) can be programmed. The remote controls must remain inside the vehicle during the programming procedure. Fasten the front seat belts and close all doors to ensure that conflicting chimes do not sound during programming.

Programming a new remote control

1. To programme new remote controls turn the ignition key to position II four times within six seconds.

2. Turn the ignition to position 0. A tone sounds to indicate that it is now possible to programme the remote controls for ten seconds.

3. Press any button on a new remote control. A tone will sound as confirmation.

4. Repeat this last step for all your remote controls, including your original. Do not remove the key from the ignition when pressing the button on this remote control.

5. Switch the ignition back on (position II) or wait for ten seconds without programming another remote control to end the key programming. Only the remote controls which you have just programmed are now able to lock and unlock the vehicle.

Reprogramming the unlocking function

Note: When you press the unlock button either all the doors are unlocked or only the driver’s door and the luggage compartment lid are unlocked. Pressing the unlock button again unlocks all the doors.

Press and hold the unlock and lock buttons on the remote key simultaneously for at least four seconds with the ignition off. The direction indicators will flash twice to confirm the change.

To return to the original unlocking function, repeat the process.
