Central Locking Systems
A vehicle can be centrally locked by the following methods:
- using the mechanical key
- moving the internal door handle to the opening position
- by using the operating buttons on the radio remote control
The central locking system makes it possible to lock or unlock all of a vehicle's doors, the liftgate or the luggage compartment lid simultaneously. This can be done by mechanically, by locking one of the front doors using the key or by locking the doors from the inside.
The door central locking system is available with single or with double locking.
Double-locking is an additional anti-theft device and can only be activated if the ignition is switched off and the driver's door is fully closed. Double locking ensures that opening the vehicle from the inside (e. g. after glass breakage) is no longer possible.
Remote Central Locking
The vehicle can also be locked and unlocked centrally using the radio remote control buttons. To activate double locking, the locking button on the radio frequency remote control must be pressed twice.
If the vehicle is unlocked but the doors, luggage compartment or the liftgate remain closed, the vehicle will automatically re-lock. The period of time this takes may vary.
