Keys, doors and windows

21

Used to operate:

■ Central locking system
■ Anti-theft locking system
■ Anti-theft alarm system
■ Power windows
■ Electric roof on Astra TwinTop

The radio remote control has an

approximate range of up to 5 metres.

This range can be affected by outside

influences. The hazard warning

flashers confirm operation.
Handle with care, protect from

moisture and high temperatures and

avoid unnecessary operation.

Fault

If the central locking system cannot

be operated with the radio remote

control, it may be due to the following:

■ Range exceeded
■ Battery voltage too low
■ Frequent, repeated operation of the

radio remote control while not in

range, which will require re-

synchronisation

■ Overload of the central locking

system by operating at frequent

intervals, the power supply is

interrupted for a short time

■ Interference from higher-power

radio waves from other sources

Unlocking 3 25.

Radio remote control battery

replacement

Replace the battery as soon as the

range reduces.
Batteries do not belong in household

waste. They must be disposed of at

an appropriate recycling collection

point.

Key with foldaway key section

Extend the key and open the unit.

Replace the battery (battery type

CR 2032), paying attention to the

installation position. Close the unit

and synchronise.

Key with fixed key section

Have the battery replaced by a

workshop.
