Keys, doors and windows

Electronic key system

Enables a handsfree operation of the

following functions:

● central locking system 3 26
● load compartment 3 35
● ignition switching on and starting

the engine 3 132

● anti-theft locking system 3 37
● anti-theft alarm system 3 38

The electronic key simply needs to be

on the driver's person.

Note

Always take the electronic key with

you when exiting the vehicle.
The electronic key being left in the

card reader is indicated by a warning

chime 3 104 and a message in the

Driver Information Centre 3 103

when the driver's door is opened.

Additionally, the electronic key

includes the functionality of the

remote control 3 22 and an entry

lighting function 3 114.
For handsfree operation, the

electronic key must be outside the

vehicle, within a range of approx.

one metre of the front doors or load

compartment. The range of operation

for the electronic key buttons 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.

Note

Do not put the electronic key in the

load compartment during driving, as

this is outside of the detection zone

(indicated by a warning chime at low

speed 3 104 and a message in the

Driver Information Centre 3 103).
Note

In the event the electronic key is kept

in the front passenger compartment

and a message appears in the Driver

Information Centre (possibly

accompanied by a warning chime)

indicating that it is out of reception

range, we recommend inserting the

electronic key in the card reader.
Note

If the electronic key is not detected

in the front passenger compartment

after opening and closing a door with

the engine running, a message

appears in the Driver Information

Centre (accompanied by a warning

chime when a certain speed is

exceeded), indicating that it is out of

reception range.
This helps you avoid, e.g., driving off

after dropping off a passenger who

has the electronic key.
The message disappears when the

electronic key is detected again.
