When locking the vehicle manually, all doors are locked. Keep the key turned in the locking position to close all windows and the power sunroof (convenience closing). When the vehicle is unlocked manually, only the driver door is unlocked. Keep the key turned in the unlocking position to open all windows. Note the instructions for the anti-theft alarm system ⇒ Anti-theft alarm system .

  • Unfold the key bit from the remote control vehicle key ⇒ Vehicle key set .
  • Insert the key bit from below into the opening of the cover cap on the driver door ⇒ Fig. 179  (arrow) and lift the cover cap off.
  • Insert the key bit into the lock cylinder of the driver door and unlock or lock the door.
  • Reinsert the cover cap from top to bottom and press until it clicks into place.

Special considerations when unlocking

  • The anti-theft alarm system remains activated for the unlocked vehicle. But no alarm is triggered at first ⇒ Power locking and closing system .
  • Open the driver door; the alarm will sound if the ignition is not switched on within about 15 seconds.
  • Switch on the ignition. The electronic immobilizer recognizes a valid remote control key when the ignition is switched on and deactivates the anti-theft alarm system.

The driver door can be unlocked separately from the inside the vehicle by pulling the door handle to open the door ⇒ Power locking and closing system .

The anti-theft alarm system is not activated when the vehicle is locked manually with the key bit ⇒ Power locking and closing system .
