The remote-control standby function switches off after 7 days
If the vehicle is not started or unlocked with the remote control within 7 days, the remote control standby function is switched off (to prevent discharging of the vehicle battery).
In this case, unlock the driver's door with the key at the door lock.
Leave the door closed in order to prevent the alarm system from being triggered.
Press button 1on the remote control. The remote control is now activated again and the alarm system is switched off.
Operational readiness of the remote control interrupted
Encoded data is transmitted to the vehicle each time the wireless remote control is operated. If the remote control is operated too often outside the range of the vehicle, this can result in the central locking system no longer responding.
In this case, the remote control and vehicle must be synchronized.
Carrying out the synchronization
Unlock the driver's door with the key at the door lock.
Open driver's door and insert the ignition key into the ignition lock within 10 seconds to prevent the alarm system from being triggered.
With the key inserted, press and hold button 1 on the remote control for approx. 5 seconds. The synchronization is now complete.
If the door windows are closed, they will be automatically opened by a few millimeters when the doors are opened and, when the doors are closed, they will be closed again. This makes it easier to open and close the doors and protects the seals.
Therefore, you should pull the door handle slowly so that the door window can be lowered before the door is opened.
