Each new key contains a microchip which must
be coded with the data from the vehicle elec-
tronic immobiliser. A vehicle key will not work if
it does not contain a microchip or the microchip
has not been encoded. This is also true for keys
which are specially cut for the vehicle.

WARNING

Never leave children or disabled persons in

the vehicle. In case of emergency, they may
not be able to leave the vehicle or manage
on their own.

An uncontrolled use of the key by third

parties could activate a piece of electrical
equipment (e.g. electric windows), with the
resulting accident hazard. The doors can be
locked using the remote control key. This
could become an obstacle for assistance in
an emergency situation.

Never forget the keys inside the vehicle. An

unauthorised use of your vehicle could result
in injury, damage or theft. Therefore always
take the key with you when you leave the
vehicle.

NOTICE

All of the vehicle keys contain electronic
components. Protect them from damage, im-
pacts and humidity.

Note

Only use the key button when you require

the corresponding function. Pushing the but-
ton unnecessarily could accidentally unlock
the vehicle or trigger the alarm. It is also pos-
sible even when you are outside the radius of
action.

Key operation can be greatly influenced by

overlapping radio signals close to the vehicle
working in the same range of frequencies,
for example, radio transmitters or mobile tel-
ephones.

 Obstacles between the remote control

and the vehicle, bad weather conditions and
discharged batteries can considerably re-
duce the range of the remote control.

If the buttons of the vehicle key are

pressed or one of the central locking but-
tons 

››› 

page 89

 is pressed repeatedly in

short succession, the central locking briefly
disconnects as protection against overload-
ing. The vehicle is then unlocked. Lock it if
necessary.

Spare remote control keys are available at

your Technical Service, where they must be
matched to the locking system.

Central locking

Troubleshooting

The Keyless Access system does not work

The operation of the sensor surfaces may be
limited if they are very dirty.

 Clean the sensor surfaces.

All turn signals flash four times

The key that was last used is still inside the vehi-
cle.

Remove the key and lock the vehicle.

Automatic deactivation of the sensor surfa-
ces

The sensor surfaces are deactivated in the fol-
lowing cases:

If the vehicle is not unlocked or locked for a

long period of time.

If any of the sensor surfaces are activated

unusually often.
To reactivate the sensor surfaces:

Unlock the vehicle using the   button on the

vehicle key.

NOTICE

The sensor surfaces on the door handles
may activate if hit by a jet of water or high
pressure steam if there is a valid vehicle key
in the proximity area. If at least one of the
windows is open and the sensor surfaces on
one of the handles permanently activates,
all of the windows will close. If the jet of wa-
ter or steam is briefly moved away from the
sensor surfaces of one of the handles and
redirected towards them, all of the windows
may open.

Note

If the message 

Keyless system faulty

is displayed on the instrument cluster dis-
play, abnormalities may occur in the opera-
tion of the Keyless Access system. Contact a
specialised workshop.

Note

If there is no vehicle key inside the vehicle or
the system fails to detect one, a warning will
display on the instrument cluster screen. This
could happen if any other radio frequency
signal interferes with the key signal or if the
key is covered by another object, e.g. a metal
case.

Central locking

Introduction

Central locking functions correctly when all the
doors and the rear lid are correctly shut. If
the driver door is open, the vehicle cannot be
locked with the key.

WARNING

The incorrect use of the central locking sys-
tem may cause serious injuries.

The central locking system will lock all

doors. A vehicle locked from the inside can
prevent any non-authorised individual from
opening the doors and accessing the vehicle.
Nevertheless, in case of emergency or acci-
dent, locked doors will complicate access to
the vehicle interior to help the passengers.

Never leave children or disabled people

alone in the vehicle. The central locking but-
ton can be used to lock all the doors from
within. Therefore, passengers will be locked
inside the vehicle. Individuals locked in the
vehicle can be exposed to very high or very
low temperatures.

Depending on the time of the year, temper-

atures inside a locked and closed vehicle can
be extremely high or extremely low resulting
in serious injuries and illness or even death,
particularly for young children.

Opening and closing

Never leave individuals locked in a closed

and locked vehicle. In case of emergency,
they may not be able to exit the vehicle by
themselves or get help.

Description

Central locking allows all doors, the rear lid and
the tank flap to be unlocked centrally:

Self-locking system to prevent involuntary
unlocking

It is an anti-theft system and prevents the unin-
tentional unlocking of the vehicle. If the vehicle
is unlocked and none of the doors (including
the boot) are opened within 45 seconds, it re-
locks automatically.

Automatic locking (Auto Lock)

The vehicle locks automatically at over a speed
of approx. 15 km/h (9 mph). The fuel tank flap is
unlocked so that you can refuel without getting
out of the vehicle.

Hybrid vehicles:

 the fuel tank flap remains

locked 

››› 

page 311

.

When the vehicle is locked, the control lamp 
of the central locking button lights up yellow.

Automatic unlocking (Auto Unlock)

If one of the following conditions is met, all
doors and the rear lid are unlocked automati-
cally:

The electronic parking brake is engaged and

the ignition is switched off.

EITHER:

 the inside door handle is pulled. This

applies when driving at under 15 km/h (9 mph).

OR:

 in the event of an accident and an airbag

has been triggered 

››› 

page 91

.

Automatic unlocking allows third parties to ac-
cess the interior of the vehicle to provide assis-
tance if necessary.

Turn signals

The turn signals will flash twice when the vehi-
cle is unlocked and once when the vehicle is
locked.
If it does not flash, this indicates that one of the
doors, the rear lid or the bonnet is not closed
correctly.

Accidental lock-out

The central locking system prevents you from
being locked out of the vehicle in the following
situations:

 If the driver door is open, the vehicle can-

not be locked with the central locking switch 

››› 

page 89

.

Lock the vehicle with the remote control key,
when all the doors and the rear lid have been
closed. This prevents the accidental locking of
the vehicle.

Central locking settings

Central locking settings can be changed in the
Infotainment system.

Selective unlocking of the doors

 Press the function button 

 > Settings >

Opening and closing > Central lock-
ing > Door unlocking

Troubleshooting

The control lamp remains on

The red LED on the driver’s door flashes at short
intervals and then stays on. There is a fault in
the locking system.

Contact a specialised workshop. SEAT rec-

ommends visiting a SEAT dealership for this.

The turn signals do not flash

If the turn signals do not flash as a confirmation
when the vehicle is locked:

At least one door or the rear lid are not closed

or

The engine bonnet is not closed.

The vehicle locks automatically

If one of the following conditions is met, the
vehicle re-locks automatically after approx. 45
seconds.

The vehicle has been unlocked, but has not

been opened.

The ignition has not been switched on.

The rear lid has not been opened.

The vehicle has been unlocked with the lock-

ing cylinder.

The vehicle has been locked with the button

located in the vehicle interior.

What happens when locking the vehicle with
a second key

They key inside the vehicle is blocked and can-
not be used to start the engine as soon as the
vehicle is locked from the outside with a second
key. To activate the key inside the vehicle to al-
low it to switch on the engine, press its   button.

Locking the vehicle after an airbag is trig-
gered

bed below:

Switch the ignition off.

Open the driver's door and close it again.

Lock the vehicle.

Note

If the 12-volt vehicle battery has little or no
charge, or the vehicle key battery is almost
or entirely out of charge, you will probably
not be able to lock or unlock the vehicle
with the Keyless Access system. The vehi-
cle can be unlocked and locked manually 

››› 

page 93

.

Note

If there is no vehicle key in the vehicle or
the system does not detect it, a warning will
be displayed on the instrument cluster. This
could happen if any other radio frequency
signal interferes with the key signal or if the
key is covered by another object, e.g. a metal
case.

Anti-theft alarm

Description

Depending on the equipment, the vehicle may
be fitted with an anti-theft alarm.
The theft alarm monitors the doors, bonnet and
rear lid.
The anti-theft alarm system activates automat-
ically when the vehicle is locked.
If the vehicle is not opened electronically with
a valid key, the alarm triggers and emits audio
and light signals for a maximum of approx. 5
minutes.

When is the anti-theft alarm triggered?

If a mechanically unlocked door is opened

with the vehicle key, you have 15 seconds to
switch on the ignition before the alarm is trig-
gered (depending on markets, the 15 seconds
waiting time disappears and the alarm is trig-
gered immediately when the door is opened).

other monitored area is accessed (e.g. the
rear lid is opened after a door has been
opened), the alarm is triggered again.

The anti-theft alarm is not activated when

the vehicle is locked from within using the
central locking button  .

If the driver door is unlocked mechanically

with the key, only the driver door is unlocked,
the rest of the doors remain locked. Only
when the ignition has been turned on will the
other doors be available - but not unlocked -
and the central locking button will be activa-
ted.

Vehicle monitoring remains active even if

the battery is disconnected or not working
for any reason.

Interior monitoring and anti-tow sys-
tem

If movement is detected in the vehicle interior
while the vehicle is locked, the interior monitor-
ing triggers the alarm.
If it detects that the vehicle is being lifted, the
anti-tow system triggers the alarm.

Switching on the interior monitoring and the
anti-tow systems

Lock the vehicle. When the anti-theft alarm is

activated, the interior monitoring and the anti-
tow system are as well.

Depending on the equipment, the use of a par-
tition net can affect the operation of the interior
monitoring system.

hicle.

When the vehicle is to be loaded onto an-

other means of transport, transported or towed.

When the vehicle is to be left in a car wash or

is to be parked in a double-decker garage.

Risk of false interior monitoring alarms

The interior monitoring system will only operate
correctly if the vehicle is completely locked.
Please bear in mind all legal provisions. The
following situations may cause a false alarm:

If one or more windows are partially or com-

pletely open.

If the sliding/tilting roof is partially or fully

open.

If light objects are left inside the vehicle, e.g.

loose paper or items hanging from the interior
mirror.

If the vibrate function of a mobile left inside

the vehicle is activated.

Note

It is not possible to permanently deactivate

the interior monitoring and anti-tow systems.

If any doors or the rear lid are open when

the anti-theft alarm is activated, only the
alarm will be activated. The interior monitor-
ing and anti-tow systems will only activate
once all of the doors and the rear lid are
closed.

When the interior monitoring and anti-tow

systems are switched off, the “Safe” security
system is also switched off

the central locking is damaged.

WARNING

Opening and closing doors carelessly can
cause serious injury.

If the vehicle is locked from outside, the

doors and windows cannot be opened from
the inside.

Never leave children or disabled people

alone in the car. They could be trapped in the
car in an emergency and will not be able to
get themselves to safety.

Depending on the time of the year, temper-

atures inside a locked and closed vehicle can
be extremely high or extremely low resulting
in serious injuries and illness or even death,
particularly for young children.

WARNING

Getting in the way of the doors and the rear
lid is dangerous and can lead to serious in-
jury.

Open and close the doors and the rear lid

only when there is nobody in the way.

WARNING

Careless and unsuitable locking, opening
and closing of the rear lid can cause acci-
dents and serious injury.

Do not close the rear lid by pushing it down

with your hand on the rear window. The glass
could smash. Risk of injury!

Ensure the rear lid is locked after closing

it. If not, it may open unexpectedly while driv-
ing.

Closing the rear lid without observing and

ensuring it is clear could cause serious injury
to you and to third parties. Make sure that no
one is in the path of the rear lid.

Never drive with the rear lid open or half-

closed, exhaust gases may penetrate into
the interior of the vehicle. Danger of poison-
ing!

Never open the rear lid if there is cargo,

e.g. bicycles, attached to it. The rear lid may
close by itself due to the additional weight. If
necessary, remove the cargo first or hold the
rear lid.

Never leave the vehicle unattended or al-

low children to play inside or next to it, espe-
cially if the rear lid is open. Children could
enter the luggage compartment, close the
rear lid and become trapped. A locked vehi-
cle can reach extremely high and low tem-
peratures, depending on the time of year,
thus causing serious injuries, illness or even
death.

 If the rear bumper is very dirty.

If the rear bumper is wet with salt water, e.g.

after having driven on gritted roads.

If the vehicle has been equipped at a later

time with a tow bracket.
In the event of heavy rain, the Easy Open fea-
ture may take a little longer to open the boot
or may deactivate automatically, to avoid the
boot opening by accident, e.g. because of the
running water.
The Easy Open function can be connected and
disconnected permanently in the infotainment
system using the button

WARNING

If there is a valid key in the proximity of the
rear lid, in some cases the Easy Open func-
tion may be accidentally activated and the
rear lid will open, for example, when sweep-
ing under the rear bumper, when directing a
water jet or high pressure steam to the area
or when carrying out maintenance work or
repairs in that area. If accidentally opened,
the rear lid could injure somebody situated in
its area of operation or cause material dam-
age.

 Therefore, always make sure that there is

no unsupervised valid key in the area near
the rear lid.

Before carrying out any maintenance or re-

pair work on the vehicle, always disable the
Easy Open feature via the infotainment sys-
tem.

Before washing the vehicle, always disable

the Easy Open function via the infotainment
system.

Before attaching a bike rack or hitching a

trailer

.

Incorrect use of the electric windows can

result in injury.

Never close the rear lid without observing

and ensuring it is clear, to do otherwise could
cause serious injury to you and third parties.
Make sure that no one is in the path of a win-
dow.

If the ignition is switched on, the electric

equipment could be activated with risk of in-
jury, for example, in the electric windows.

The doors can be locked using the remote

control key. This could become an obstacle
for assistance in an emergency situation.

Therefore always take the key with you

when you leave the vehicle.

The electric windows will work until the ig-

nition has been switched off and one of the
front doors has been opened.

If necessary, use the safety switch to disa-

ble the rear electric windows. Make sure that
they have been disabled.

For safety reasons, you should only use

the remote control open and close functions
within about 2 metres of the vehicle. To avoid
injuries, always keep an eye on the windows
when pressing the button to close them. The
windows stop moving as soon as the button is
released.

Note

If the window is not able to close because
it is stiff or because of an obstruction,
the window will automatically open again

ters resistance or an obstacle, and will reopen
automatically.

If the window will still not close, visit a special-

ised workshop.

Sunroof

Introduction

The sunroof consists of two glass parts. The
rear part is fixed and cannot be opened. It also
has a sun blind.

The sunroof only works when the ignition
is switched on. Once the ignition has been
switched off, you can still open or close the
sunroof for a few minutes provided the driver
door and the front passenger door are not
opened.

WARNING

If the sunroof is used negligently or without
paying due attention, it can cause serious
injury.

 Open or close the sunroof and the sun

blind only when no one is in their path of
movement.

 Never leave any key inside the vehicle

when exiting.

 Never leave a child or any other person

who may need help in the vehicle, especially
if they have access to the vehicle key. If using
they key unattended, they could lock the ve-
hicle, start the engine, switch on the ignition
and activate the sunroof.

 After switching off, it is still possible to

open or close the sunroof during a short
space of time provided that neither the driver
nor passenger door is opened.

NOTICE

To prevent damage, during winter tempera-

tures remove any ice or snow that might be
on the car roof before opening the sunroof or
adjusting the tilt position.

Before leaving the vehicle or in case of

rainfall, always close the sunroof. With the
sunroof open or in a tilted position, water can
enter the interior and can cause considera-
ble damage to the electrical system. As a re-
sult, other damage can occur in the vehicle.

Note

Leaves and other loose objects that accu-

mulate on the sunroof rails should be regu-
larly cleaned away either by hand or with a
vacuum.

If the sunroof does not work correctly, the

anti-trap function will not work either. Con-
tact a specialised workshop.
