Radio remote control

Used to operate:

● central locking system
● anti-theft alarm system

The radio remote control has a range

of approx. 20 m. 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:

● The range is exceeded.
● The 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 22.

Radio remote control battery

replacement

Replace the battery as soon as the

range reduces.
