Press the locking button 2. The hazard 

warning lights flash twice to indicate 

that the doors have locked. If a door 

or the luggage compartment is open

warning disappears when the card is in-

serted in the reader again.

Distance lighting function

The dipped beam headlights, indicator 

lights and interior lights come on for ap-

proximately 30 seconds when button 3 

is pressed. This can be used, for exam-

ple, to identify the vehicle from a dis-

tance when parked in a car park.

Note: pressing button 3 again switches 

off the lighting.


The card buttons are deactivated 

when the engine is running.
The flashing status of the hazard 

warning lights informs you of the ve-

hicle status:
–  one flash indicates that the vehi-

cle is completely unlocked;

–  two flashes indicate that the ve-

hicle is completely locked.

If the vehicle has been unlocked 

but neither the doors or tailgate are 

open, it locks again automatically 

after two minutes.






After unlocking the vehicle or the 

boot only using the buttons of the 

RENAULT card, remote locking and 

unlocking in hands-free mode are 

To reactivate the hands-free mode: 

restart the vehicle.


On equipped vehicles, in addition to 

the functions of the above-mentioned 

remote control RENAULT card, it can 

be used to lock/unlock without using 

the RENAULT card, when it is in access 

zone 1.

Do not store the RENAULT card

Locking the vehicle

There are three ways to lock the ve-

hicle: remotely, using the button 3, or 

using the RENAULT card.

Remote locking

With the RENAULT card on you, and 

doors and tailgate closed, move away 

from the vehicle: it will lock automati-

cally once you have left zone 1.
Note: the distance at which the vehicle 

locks depends on the surroundings.

The hazard warning lights flash twice 

and a beep sounds to indicate that the 

doors have locked.

The beep may be switched off. Please 

contact an authorised dealer.

If a door or the tailgate is open or not 

properly shut, or a card is in the passen-

ger compartment (or the card reader) 

the vehicle will not lock. In this situa-

tion, no beep sounds and the hazard 

warning lights do not flash.



Locking using the button 3
With the doors and boot closed, press 

the button 3 on a door handle of the ve-

hicle: the vehicle will lock. If a door or 

the boot is open or not closed properly, 

the vehicle will quickly lock/unlock.

the vehicle's access zone (zone 1) to 

be able to lock the vehicle using the 

Special note
If you wish to check that the doors are 

locked after locking using the button 3

you have approximately three seconds 

to try the door handles without unlock-

ing them.
After this delay, the hands-free mode 

is activated once again and any move-

ment of a handle will unlock the vehicle.


If the vehicle is fitted with remote window closing, two quick presses on the button 3 automatically causes all the windows to 

close and the doors to lock (please see the information on “Electric windows, Electric sunroof” in Section 3).


With the engine running, if having 

once opened and closed a door, the 

card is no longer in the passenger com-

partment, the message “Keycard not 

detected” (accompanied by a warning 

beep once the speed passes a thresh-

old value) will tell you that the card is no 

longer in the vehicle. This avoids you 

driving away after having dropped off a 

passenger who has the card, for exam-

The warning disappears when the card 

is detected again.



Locking using the RENAULT card
With the doors and luggage compart-

ment closed, press button 5: the vehi-

cle will lock.
The hazard warning lights flash twice 

to indicate that the doors have locked.

on the button 3 of the handle on one 

of the vehicle’s doors.

The hazard warning lights flash five 

times to indicate locking.

If the vehicle is equipped with a dead-

locking function, this allows you to lock 

the opening elements and to prevent 

the doors from being unlocked using 

the interior handles (for example, by 

breaking the window and then trying to 

open the door from the inside).

RENAULT CARD: deadlocking


Activating deadlocking also re-

motely closes the windows and/or
