Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual:  Introduction to the subject

In this chapter you will find information on the following subjects:

⇒ Description of the power locking system 

⇒ Unlocking and locking the vehicle from the outside 

⇒ Unlocking and locking the vehicle from the inside 

⇒ Unlocking and locking vehicles with Keyless Access 

⇒ Anti-theft alarm system 

The power locking system works properly only when all doors and the rear hatch are completely closed. When the driver door is open, the vehicle cannot be locked with the remote control vehicle key.

Leaving the vehicle unlocked for longer periods of non-use (for example, in your garage) can cause the vehicle battery to drain so that the engine can no longer be started.

Improper use of power locks can result in serious personal injury.
  • The power locking button locks all doors. Locking the doors from the inside can help prevent unintended door opening during a collision and can also prevent unwanted entry from the outside. Locked doors can, however, delay assistance to vehicle occupants and rescue from the outside in an accident or other emergency.
  • Never leave children or anyone who cannot help themselves behind in the vehicle. All doors can be locked from the inside with the power lock button. This could leave people trapped in the vehicle in an emergency. Depending on the time of year, people trapped in the vehicle can be exposed to very high or very low temperatures.
  • A closed vehicle can become very hot or very cold, depending on the season. Particularly in the summer, heat buildup in the passenger and luggage compartment of a parked vehicle can result in temperatures in the vehicle that are much higher than the outside temperatures. Temperatures can quickly reach levels that can cause unconsciousness and death, particularly to small children.
  • Never allow passengers to remain in a locked vehicle. In an emergency any person still inside the vehicle might not be able to get out.
