Spare key

To obtain a spare key and other vehicle keys,
the vehicle ID number is required.

Each new key contains a microchip which
must be coded with the data from the vehicle
electronic immobiliser. A vehicle key will not
work if it does not contain a microchip or the
microchip has not been encoded. This is also
true for keys which are specially cut for the
vehicle.

The vehicle keys or new spare keys can be
obtained from a SEAT Official Service, a spe-
cialised workshop or an approved key service
qualified to create this kind of key.

New keys or spare keys must be synchronised
before use 

››› 

page 95

.

WARNING

Never leave children or disabled persons

in the vehicle. In case of emergency, they
may not be able to leave the vehicle or
manage on their own.

An uncontrolled use of the key could start

the engine or activate any electric equip-
ment (e.g. electric windows), causing risk
of accident. The doors can be locked using
the remote control key. This could become
an obstacle for assistance in an emergen-
cy situation.

Never forget the keys inside the vehicle.

An unauthorised use of your vehicle could
result in injury, damage or theft. Therefore

»

93

Operation

always take the key with you when you
leave the vehicle.

Never remove the key from the ignition if

the vehicle is in motion. Otherwise, the
steering could suddenly block and it would
be impossible to steer the vehicle.

CAUTION

All of the vehicle keys contain electronic
components. Protect them from damage,
impacts and humidity.

Note

Only use the key button when you require

the corresponding function. Pushing the
button unnecessarily could accidentally
unlock the vehicle or trigger the alarm. It is
also possible even when you are outside
the radius of action.

Key operation can be greatly influenced

by overlapping radio signals close to the
vehicle working in the same range of fre-
quencies, for example, radio transmitters or
mobile telephones.

Obstacles between the remote control

and the vehicle, bad weather conditions
and discharged batteries can considerably
reduce the range of the remote control.

If the buttons of the vehicle key are

pressed or one of the central locking but-
tons 

››› 

page 97

 is pressed repeatedly in

short succession, the central locking brief-

ly disconnects as protection against over-
loading. The vehicle is then unlocked. Lock
it if necessary.

Spare remote control keys are available

at your Technical Service, where they must
be matched to the locking system.

Up to five remote control keys can be

used.

To change the battery

Opening and closing

WARNING

Swallowing a battery with a 20 mm diame-
ter or any other button battery can cause
serious and even fatal injuries within a very
short time.

Keep the vehicle key and key fobs with

batteries out of reach of children.

If you suspect that someone may have

swallowed a battery, seek immediate med-
ical attention.

CAUTION

If the battery is not changed correctly,

the vehicle key may be damaged.

Use of unsuitable batteries may damage

the vehicle key. For this reason, always re-
place the dead battery with another of the
same voltage, size and specifications.

When fitting the battery, check that the

polarity is correct.

For the sake of the environment

Please dispose of your used batteries cor-
rectly and with respect for the environ-
ment.

Synchronize the vehicle key

If the 

 button is pressed frequently outside

of the vehicle range, it is possible that the ve-

hicle can no longer be locked or unlocked us-
ing the key. In this case, the key must be re-
synchronised as described below:

Unfold the vehicle key blade 

››› 

page 93

.

If necessary, remove the cover from the

driver door lever 

››› 

page 104

.

Press the 

 button on the vehicle key. For

this, it must remain with the vehicle.

Open the vehicle within one minute using

the key blade. The key has been synchron-
ised.

If necessary, fit the cap.

Central locking

Introduction

Central locking functions correctly when all
the doors and the rear lid are correctly shut. If
the driver door is open, the vehicle 

cannot

 be

locked with the key.

If the vehicle has the Keyless Access locking
and ignition system, it may only be locked
with the ignition off and the driver's door
closed.

WARNING

The incorrect use of the central locking
system may cause serious injuries.

The central locking system will lock all

doors. A vehicle locked from the inside can
prevent any non-authorised individual from
opening the doors and accessing the vehi-
cle. Nevertheless, in case of emergency or
accident, locked doors will complicate ac-
cess to the vehicle interior to help the pas-
sengers.

Never leave children or disabled people

alone in the vehicle. The central locking
button can be used to lock all the doors
from within. Therefore, passengers will be
locked inside the vehicle. Individuals locked
in the vehicle can be exposed to very high
or very low temperatures.

Depending on the time of the year, tem-

peratures inside a locked and closed vehi-
cle can be extremely high or extremely low
resulting in serious injuries and illness or
even death, particularly for young children.

Never leave individuals locked in a closed

and locked vehicle. In case of emergency,
they may not be able to exit the vehicle by
themselves or get help.

Description

Central locking allows all doors, the rear lid
and the tank flap to be unlocked centrally:

Self-locking system to prevent involuntary
unlocking

It is an anti-theft system and prevents the un-
intentional unlocking of the vehicle. If the ve-
hicle is unlocked and none of the doors (in-
cluding the boot) are opened within 30 sec-
onds, it re-locks automatically.

Automatic locking (Auto Lock)

The Auto Lock function locks the doors and
the rear lid when the vehicle exceeds a speed
of about 15 km/h (9 mph).

The vehicle is unlocked again when the igni-
tion key is removed. Alternatively, the vehicle
can also be unlocked via the central locking
switch or by pulling one of the inside door
handles.

In the event of an accident in which the air-
bags inflate, the doors will be automatically
unlocked to facilitate access and assistance.

Depending on the amount of damage, it can
be locked following an accident in the follow-
ing ways:

With the central locking button

Switch the ignition off.

Open a vehicle door once and close it

again.

Press the central locking button  

With the vehicle key

Switch the ignition off.

OR:

 remove the key from the ignition switch.

Open a vehicle door once.

Use the key to lock the vehicle.

Automatic unlocking (Auto Unlock)

When the key is removed from the ignition
slot, here the vehicle unlocks all doors and
the boot automatically 

››› 

page 73

.

Turn signals

The turn signals will flash twice when the ve-
hicle is unlocked and once when the vehicle
is locked.

If it does not flash, this indicates that one of
the doors, the rear lid or the bonnet is not
closed correctly.

Accidental lock-out

The central locking system prevents you from
being locked out of the vehicle in the follow-
ing situations:

If the driver door is open, the vehicle cannot

be locked with the central locking switch

››› 

page 97

.

Lock the vehicle with the remote control key,
when all the doors and the rear lid have been
closed. This prevents the accidental locking
of the vehicle.

Note

Never leave any valuable items in the ve-

hicle unattended. Even a locked vehicle is
not a safe.

If the LED on the driver door sill lights up

for about 30 seconds when the vehicle is
locked, the central locking system or anti-
theft alarm is not working properly. You
should have the fault repaired at a SEAT
Official Service or specialised workshop.

96

Opening and closing

Vehicle interior monitoring by the anti-

theft alarm system will only function as in-
tended if the windows and sunroof are
closed.

Depending on the equipment, the vehicle
may have the Keyless Access system.

Keyless Access is a key-free locking and igni-
tion system to unlock and lock the vehicle
without actively using its key. To do this, all
that is required is to have a valid vehicle key in
the detection area where you are attempting
to access the vehicle 

››› 

Fig. 91

 and to touch

one of the sensor surfaces on the door han-
dles 

››› 

Fig. 92

 

››› 

.

The vehicle can be unlocked and locked via
the front doors only. When doing so, the re-
mote control key must be no further than ap-
prox. 1.5 m away from the door handle.

It does not matter where you carry the key,
e.g. in your jacket pocket.

Once the doors have been locked, they can-
not be opened again immediately. This will
enable you to check that the doors are prop-
erly closed.

If you wish you may unlock 

only

 the corre-

sponding door or the entire vehicle. The nec-
essary adjustments can be made in vehicles
with a driver information system 

›››

 (arrow) on one of the

handles is activated continuously, all win-
dows will close.

Note

If the vehicle battery has little or no

charge, or the vehicle key battery is almost
or entirely out of charge, you will probably
not be able to lock or unlock the vehicle
with the Keyless Access system. The vehi-
cle can be unlocked or locked manually

››› 

page 104

.

To control the proper locking of the vehi-

cle, the release function is disabled for ap-
prox. 2 seconds.

If the message 

Keyless access system

faulty

 is displayed on the screen of the

dash panel, abnormalities may occur in the
operation of the Keyless Access system.
Contact a specialised workshop. SEAT rec-
ommends visiting a SEAT dealership for
this.

If there is no valid key inside the vehicle

or the system fails to detect one, a warning
will display on the dash panel screen. This
could happen if any other radio frequency
signal interferes with the key signal (e.g.
from a mobile device accessory) or if the
key is covered by another object (e.g. an
aluminium case).

If the sensors are very dirty, e.g. have a

layer of salt, the correct functioning of the
sensors on the door handles may be affec-
ted. In this case, clean the vehicle.

If the vehicle is equipped with an auto-

matic gearbox, it may only be locked in the
gear stick is in position P.

To improve the safety of your vehicle, the

remote control of the system is equipped
with a position sensor. If this remote control
does not detect movement for a certain
length of time, the system will conclude

100

Opening and closing

that the vehicle cannot be opened (e.g. on
a night table) so it will be disabled.

Locking system “Safe”

1)

When the vehicle is locked, the “Safe” securi-
ty system puts the door handles out of opera-
tion and makes it difficult for unauthorized
people to enter. The doors cannot be opened
from inside 

››› 

.

Depending on the vehicle, when switching the
ignition off, a warning may be displayed on
the dash panel screen stating that the “Safe”
security system is activated (

SAFE Lock

 or

SAFELOCK

).

Lock the vehicle and activate the “Safe”
security system.

Press the locking button 

 

once

 on the ve-

hicle key.

Lock the vehicle without activating the
“Safe” system.

Press the locking 

 button on the vehicle

key 

twice

.

On vehicles with the Keyless Access locking

and ignition system:

 touch the sensor surface

on the outside part of the door handle 

twice

.

When the “Safe” security system is disa-
bled, the following needs to be taken into
account:

The vehicle can be opened and unlocked

from the inside using an inside door handle.

The anti-theft alarm is activated.

The vehicle interior monitoring system and

the anti-tow system are disabled.

WARNING

Do not leave anyone (especially children)
in the vehicle if it is locked from the outside
and the “Safe” security system is activa-
ted, as the doors and windows cannot then
be opened from the inside. Locked doors
could delay assistance in an emergency.

Anti-theft alarm system

Description

The anti-theft alarm makes it more difficult to
break into the vehicle or steal it. The system
will initiate acoustic and optical warning sig-
nals when your vehicle is tried to be forced.

The anti-theft alarm is automatically turned
on when the vehicle is locked with the key.
The system is immediately activated and the

turn signal light located on the driver door will
flash along with the turn signals, indicating
that the alarm and the locking security sys-
tem (double lock) have been turned on.

If any of the doors or the bonnet are open,
they will not be included in the protection
zones of the vehicle when the alarm is con-
nected. If the door or the bonnet are subse-
quently closed, they will be automatically in-
cluded in the protection areas of the vehicle
and the turn signals will flash accordingly
when the doors close.

The turn signal light will flash twice on

opening and deactivating the alarm.

The turn signal light will flash once on clos-

ing and activating the alarm.

When does the system trigger an alarm?

The anti-theft alarm siren will be triggered for
about 30 seconds alongside a sound and
optical (flashing) warning signals and will be
repeated about ten times when the vehicle is
locked and the following unauthorised ac-
tions are attempted:

Opening a door that is mechanically un-

locked using the vehicle key without switching
on the ignition in the next 15 seconds (in cer-
tain markets, such as the Netherlands, there is

»

How to turn OFF the alarm

Unlock the vehicle with the unlock button 

of the key.

OR:

 turn the ignition on with a valid key.

If the driver’s door is unlocked mechanically
using the key, the key must be inserted into
the ignition, and the ignition must be turned
on within 15 seconds of opening the door.

Otherwise, the alarm will trigger for 30 sec.
and the ignition will be blocked.

CAUTION

If the anti-theft security system is switched
off, the vehicle interior monitoring and the
tow-away protection are automatically
disconnected.

Note

After 28 days, the indicator light will be

switched off to prevent the battery from ex-
hausting if the vehicle has been left parked
for a long period of time. The alarm system
remains activated.

If, after the audible warning goes off, an-

other monitored area is accessed (e.g. the
rear lid is opened after a door has been
opened), the alarm is triggered again.

The anti-theft alarm is not activated

when the vehicle is locked from within using
the central locking button 

.

If the driver door is unlocked mechanical-

ly with the key, only the driver door is un-
locked, the rest of the doors remain locked.
Only when the ignition has been turned on
will the other doors be available - but not
unlocked - and the central locking button
will be activated.

If the vehicle battery is run down or flat

then the anti-theft alarm will not operate
correctly.

Vehicle monitoring remains active even if

the battery is disconnected or not working
for any reason.

The alarm is triggered immediately if one

of the battery cables is disconnected while
the alarm system is active.

Interior monitoring and the anti-
tow system

Fig. 93 

On the roof console: passenger com-

partment monitoring sensors.

It is a monitoring or control function incorpo-
rated in the anti-theft alarm which detects
unauthorised vehicle entry by means of ultra-
sound.

The vehicle interior monitoring and anti-tow
sensor (tilt sensor) are automatically switch-
ed on when the anti-theft alarm is switched
on. In order to activate it, all the doors and
the rear lid must be closed.

102

Opening and closing

If the “Safe” 

››› 

page 101

 security system is

switched off, the vehicle interior monitoring
and the tow-away protection are automati-
cally disconnected.

Activation

Close the storage compartment 

››› 

Fig. 93

 on the roof console, otherwise the interior

monitoring function (arrow) is not guaranteed
to work freely.

It is automatically switched on when the

anti-theft alarm is activated.

Deactivation

Open the vehicle with the key, either me-

chanically or by pressing the 

 button on the

remote control. The time period from when
the door is opened until the key is inserted in
the contact should not exceed 15 seconds,
otherwise the alarm will be triggered.

Press the 

 button on the remote control

twice. The volumetric sensor and tilt sensors
will be deactivated. The alarm system re-
mains activated.

The vehicle interior monitoring and the anti-
tow system are automatically switched on
again next time the vehicle is locked.

If you wish to switch off the vehicle interior
monitoring and the anti-tow system, it must
be done each time that the vehicle is locked;
if not, they will be automatically switched on.

The vehicle interior monitoring and the anti-
tow system should be switched off if animals
are left inside the locked vehicle (otherwise,
their movements will trigger the alarm) or
when, for example, the vehicle is transported
or has to be towed with only one axle on the
ground.

False alarms

Interior monitoring will only operate correctly
if the vehicle is completely closed. Please ob-
serve related legal requirements.

The following cases may cause a false
alarm:

Open windows (partially or fully).

Panoramic/tilting sunroof open (partially or

completely).

Movement of objects inside the vehicle,

such as loose papers, items hanging from the
rear vision mirror (air fresheners), etc.

Note

If the vehicle is relocked and the alarm is

activated without the volumetric sensor
function, relocking will activate the alarm
with all its functions, except the volumetric
sensor. This function is reactivated when
the alarm is switched on again, unless it is
deliberately switched off.

If the alarm has been triggered by the

volumetric sensor, this will be indicated by

a flashing of the warning lamp on the driver
door when the vehicle is opened. The flash
is different to the flash indicating the alarm
is activated.

The vibration of a mobile phone left in-

side the vehicle may cause the vehicle in-
terior monitoring alarm to trigger, as both
sensors react to movements and shakes in-
side the vehicle.

If on activating the alarm, any door or the

rear lid is open, only the alarm will be acti-
vated. The vehicle interior monitoring and
the anti-tow system will only be activated
once all the doors are closed (including the
rear lid).

Doors

Introduction

The doors and rear lid can be locked man-
ually and partially opened, for example if the
key or the central locking is damaged.

WARNING

Opening and closing doors carelessly can
cause serious injury.

If the vehicle is locked from outside, the

doors and windows cannot be opened from
the inside.

Operation

Never leave children or disabled people

alone in the car. They could be trapped in
the car in an emergency and will not be
able to get themselves to safety.

Depending on the time of the year, tem-

peratures inside a locked and closed vehi-
cle can be extremely high or extremely low
resulting in serious injuries and illness or
even death, particularly for young children.

WARNING

Getting in the way of the doors and the rear
lid is dangerous and can lead to serious in-
jury.

Open and close the doors and the rear lid

only when there is nobody in the way.

CAUTION

When opening and closing in an emergen-
cy, carefully disassemble components and
then reassemble them carefully to avoid
damage to the vehicle.

Warning lamp

It lights up

At least one vehicle door is open or not correctly
shut. 

Do not continue driving!

 Open the corresponding

door and close it immediately.

Several warning and control lamps light up
for a few seconds when the ignition is switch-
ed on, signalling that the function is being
verified. They will switch off after a few sec-
onds.

If a door is open or not properly closed, the
warning lamp 

 or 

 will light up on the in-

strument panel.

Depending on the vehicle equipment, a sym-
bol may be displayed on the dash panel
screen instead of the warning lamp. The indi-
cation is also visible when the ignition is
switched off. The indication disappears
around 15 seconds after the vehicle has been
locked.
