key, first press the button.

Car Pass

The Car Pass contains security

related vehicle data and should

therefore be kept in a safe place.
When the vehicle is taken to a

workshop, this vehicle data is needed

in order to perform certain operations.

Radio remote control

Used to operate:

● central locking system
● anti-theft locking system
● anti-theft alarm system
● power windows
● sunroof

The radio remote control has a range

of approx. 20 metres. It can be

restricted by external 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 is exceeded.
● Battery voltage is 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 24.

Basic settings

Some settings can be changed in the

Settings menu in the Info-Display.

Exterior mirrors

Convex shape

The convex exterior mirror contains

turning the control to left (L) or right

(R). Then swivel the control to adjust

the mirror.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
