Unlocking and locking

Introduction

The vehicle is equipped with a central locking system which makes it possible

to unlock / lock all the doors, the fuel filler flap and boot lid simultaneously.
The door unlocking can be adjusted individually 

» page 60

.

The unlocking of the vehicle is displayed by the turn signal lights flashing

twice.
If you unlock the vehicle and do not open a door or the boot lid within the next

45 seconds, the vehicle will lock again automatically.
The locking of the vehicle is displayed by the turn signal lights flashing once.
If the driver's door has been opened, the vehicle cannot be locked.
If the doors or the boot lid remain open after the vehicle has been locked, the

turn signal lights do not flash until they have been closed.

WARNING

Never leave the key in the vehicle when you exit the vehicle. Unauthorized

persons (e.g. children) could lock the car, turn on the ignition or start the

engine - there is a danger of injury and accidents!

When leaving the vehicle, never leave people who are not completely in-

dependent, such as children, unattended in the vehicle. These individuals

might not be able to leave the vehicle on their own or to help themselves.

Can be fatal at very high or very low temperatures!

CAUTION

Each key contains electronic components; therefore it must be protected

against moisture and severe shocks.

Keep the keyway clean. Impurities (textile fibres, dust etc.) have a negative

effect on the functionality of the locking cylinder and ignition lock.

When unlocking/locking the vehicle, the key must be at a maximum distance

of approximately 1.5 m from the front door handle.

Information on locking

On vehicles fitted with automatic gearbox, the selector lever must be moved

into the position P before unlocking.
After locking the vehicle, it is not possible to unlock within the next 2 seconds

by touching the door handle. This can be used to check whether the vehicle is

locked.

Protection against inadvertently locking the key in the vehicle

If one of the doors is closed after the vehicle has been locked and the key with

which the vehicle was locked remains in the passenger compartment, the vehi-

cle will be automatically unlocked. After automatically unlocking, the turn sig-

nal lights will flash four times. If no door is opened within 45 seconds, the vehi-

cle is automatically locked again.

If the boot lid is closed after locking the vehicle and the key with which the

vehicle was locked remains in the luggage compartment, the lid is automatical-

ly unlatched (partially opened). After automatically unlocking, the turn signal

lights will flash four times. The boot lid remains unlatched (partially opened);

the other doors remain locked.

CAUTION

Some types of gloves can affect the unlocking or locking device via the sen-

sors in the door handle.

vehicle in an emergency – risk to life!

SafeLock

Read and observe   and   on page 57 first.

SafeLock prevents the doors from behind opened from inside as well as win-

dow operation. This makes it more difficult for anyone to break into the vehi-

cle.

SafeLock switches on when the vehicle is locked.
This function is enabled after switching off the ignition with the message Check

safe lock.! Log book! In the instrument cluster display.

Switch-on display

The warning light in the driver´s door flashes fast for about 2 seconds, goes

out and starts to flash at longer intervals after about 30 seconds.
If the vehicle is locked and the safe securing system is switched off, the door

can be opened separately from the inside by a single pull on opening lever.
The safelock switches on the next time the vehicle is locked.

WARNING

If the car is locked and the safe securing system activated, no people must

remain in the car as it will then not be possible to either unlock a door or

open a window from the inside. The locked doors make it more difficult for

rescuers to get into the vehicle in an emergency – risk to life!
