The status of the central locking and alarm system is not changed by disconnecting the battery.

When the battery is disconnected, the alarm system ceases to function.

Central locking overload protection
If the central locking system is operated more than ten times within a minute, further operation is blocked for 30 seconds.

Load switch-off after 2 hours or 7 days
If the ignition key is removed, loads which are switched on or are in standby mode (such as the luggage compartment light and interior light) are automatically switched off after approx. 2 hours. The Radio/PCM is automatically switched off after approx. 10 minutes.

If the vehicle is not started or unlocked with the remote control within 7 days, the remote control standby function is switched off (to save the vehicle battery).

    Leave the door closed in order to prevent the alarm system from being triggered.

The remote control is now activated again.
