Anti-trap function

WARNING:
Careless closing of the windows can override the protection function and cause injuries.

The electric windows will stop automatically while closing and reverse some distance if there is an obstacle in the way.

Overriding the anti-trap function

CAUTION:
While you close the window for the third time, the anti-trap function is disabled. Make sure there are no obstacles in the way of the closing window.

To override this protection function when there is a resistance, e.g. in the winter, proceed as follows:
1. Close the window twice until it reaches the resistance and let it reverse.

2. Close the window a third time to the resistance. The anti-trap function is disabled and you cannot close the window automatically. The window will override the resistance and you can close it fully.

3. If the window does not close after the third attempt, have it checked by an expert.

WARNING:
The anti-trap function is deactivated until you have reset the memory.

After the battery has been disconnected from the vehicle you must reset the memory separately for each window: 1. Lift and hold the switch until the window is fully closed.

2. Release the switch.

3. Lift the switch again for one more second.

4. Push and hold the switch until the window is fully open.

5. Release the switch.

6. Lift and hold the switch until the window is fully closed.

7. Open the window and try to close it automatically.

8. Reset and repeat procedure if the window does not close automatically.
