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 96

.

WARNING

Never leave children or disabled persons

in the vehicle. In case of emergency, they

94

Opening and closing

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
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 99

 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

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:

While the vehicle is open:

Press the 

 button on the vehicle key.

Then close the vehicle using the key shaft

within one minute.

 If necessary, remove the

cover from the driver door lever 

››› 

page 106

.

While the vehicle is closed:

Press the 

 button on the vehicle key.

Then close the vehicle using the key shaft

within one minute.

 If necessary, remove the

cover from the driver door lever

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

96

Opening and closing

vehicle can be extremely high or extremely
low resulting in serious injuries and illness
or even death, particularly for young chil-
dren.

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:

From outside, using the vehicle key

››› 

page 98

.

From outside with the Keyless Access

››› 

page 99

 system,

From inside, by pushing the central locking

button 

››› 

page 99

.

Various functions are available to improve the
vehicle safety:

Security system “Safe” 

››› 

page 102

Self-locking system to prevent involuntary

unlocking

Selective unlocking system

Automatic speed dependent locking and

unlocking system (Auto Lock)

Emergency unlocking system

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.

Unlocking one side of the vehicle only

When you lock the vehicle with the key, the
doors and the rear lid are locked. When you
open the door, you can either unlock 

only

 the

driver door, or all the vehicle doors. To select
the required option, use the Infotainment sys-
tem setting 

››› 

page 98

.

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 fuel tank flap is
unlocked so that you can refuel without get-
ting out of the vehicle.

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.

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 99

.

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.

Operation

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. 83

 and to touch

one of the sensor surfaces on the door han-
dles 

››› 

Fig. 84

 

››› 

.

The vehicle can only be unlocked and locked
via the driver's door. 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

››› 

page 92

››› 

page 71

.

General information

If a valid key is in the proximity of the car

››› 

Fig. 83

, the Keyless Access locking and

starting system gives the key entry as soon as

one of the sensor surfaces on the front door
handles is touched.

The following features are then available
without having to use the vehicle key actively:

Keyless-Entry

: unlocking the vehicle using

the handle of the front driver’s door or the

softtouch

/handle on the rear lid.

Keyless-Exit

: locking the vehicle using the

sensor on the driver door handle.

Press & Drive:

 keyless starting of the engine

with the starter button 

››› 

page 189

.

The central locking and locking systems op-
erate in the same way as a 

normal

 locking

and unlocking system. Only the controls
change.

Unlocking the vehicle is confirmed with a

double

 flash of the indicator lights; locking by

single

 flash.

If the vehicle is locked and then all doors and
the rear lid are closed leaving the last key
used inside the vehicle and none outside, the
vehicle will 

not

 lock 

immediately

. All the ve-

hicle's indicator lights will flash 

four times

.

The vehicle will lock after a few seconds if
you do not open any door or the rear lid.

The vehicle will lock again after a few sec-
onds if you unlock the vehicle but fail to open
any door or boot hatch.

Unlocking and opening the doors
(Keyless-Entry)

››› 

page 189

. In order to

enable engine ignition, press the 

 button on

the key inside the vehicle.

Automatically disabling sensors

If the vehicle is not locked or unlocked for a
long period of time, the proximity sensors on
the passenger doors are automatically disa-
bled.

If one of the sensor surfaces on the door han-
dles is often activated in an unusual manner
with the vehicle locked (e.g. by the branches

of a bush rubbing against it), all proximity
sensors are disabled for a certain period of
time.

Sensors will again be enabled:

After a time.

OR:

 if the vehicle is unlocked with the but-

ton  

 on the key.

OR:

 if the boot is opened.

OR:

 if the vehicle is unlocked manually with

the key.

Keyless Access temporary disconnection
function

You can deactivate the vehicle's Keyless
Access unlocking for one locking and unlock-
ing cycle.

Move the gear lever to position 

P

 (if the ve-

hicle has automatic gearbox), since other-
wise the vehicle cannot be locked.

the infotainment system, using the button 

> Settings > Opening and closing

.

CAUTION

The sensor surfaces on the door handles
could engage if hit with a water jet or high
pressure steam if there is a valid vehicle
key in the proximity. If at least one of the
electric windows is open and the sensor
surface 

›››

 (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

Operation

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 106

.

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.

Depending on the function set on the in-

fotainment system for the mirrors, the exte-
rior mirrors will unfold and the surround
lighting will come on when unlocking the
vehicle using the sensor surface on the
driver and passenger door handles

››› 

page 122

.

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
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 control panel screen stating that the
“Safe” security system is activated.

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.

“Safe” status

On the driver door, there is warning lamp visi-
ble from outside the vehicle through the win-
dow which shows the “Safe” system status.

We will know that “Safe” system is activated
by the flashing warning lamp. The indicator

Opening and closing

will flash on all vehicles, fitted and nor fitted
with an alarm, until they unlock.

“Safe” activated with or without the alarm:

continuous flashing of the warning lamp.

“Safe” deactivated without the alarm:

 the

lamp stays off.

“Safe” deactivated with the alarm:

 the

warning lamp stays off.

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
no 15 second waiting time and the alarm is
activated immediately on opening the door).

A door is opened.

Opening the bonnet.

The rear lid is opened.

When the ignition is switched on with a non-

authorised key.

Undue manipulation of the alarm.

Disconnection of the vehicle battery.

Movement inside the vehicle (in vehicles

with interior monitoring 

››› 

page 104

).

When the vehicle is towed (in vehicles with

anti-tow system 

››› 

page 104

).

When the vehicle is raised (in vehicles with

anti-tow system 

››› 

page 104

).

When the vehicle is transported on a ferry

or by rail (vehicles with an anti-tow system or
vehicle interior monitoring 

››› 

page 104

).

When a trailer connected to the anti-theft

alarm system is disconnected.

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

»

103

Operation

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

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.

If the “Safe” 

››› 

page 102

 security system is

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

Activation

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.

Deactivation through the infotainment
system

Turn off the ignition and select: button 

 >

Settings > Opening and closing >
Central locking > Interior monitor-
ing

.

When the vehicle is locked now, the vehicle

interior monitoring and the tow-away protec-
tion are switched off until the next time the
door is opened.

False alarms

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

104

Opening and closing

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.

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.

.

After the driver door is opened, you have 15

seconds to switch on the ignition. Once this
time has elapsed, the alarm is triggered.

Switch the ignition on. The electronic immo-

bilizer recognises a valid vehicle key and de-
activates the anti-theft alarm system.

Functions from the driver’s door lock cylin-
der

If the vehicle does not have the “Safe” func-
tion, the following comfort functions will not
be available from the lock cylinder:

Raising and lowering the side windows.

Folding/unfolding the exterior mirrors.

Unlocking of the central locking (only oper-

ates the driver's door).

ger be opened from the outside. Pull the inte-
rior door handle once to unlock and open the
door.

Childproof locks

Fig. 88 

Childproof lock on the left hand side

door.

The childproof lock prevents the rear doors
from being opened from the inside. This sys-
tem prevents minors from opening a door ac-
cidentally while the vehicle is running.

This function is independent of the vehicle
electronic opening and locking systems. It
only affects rear doors. It can only be activa-
ted and deactivated manually, as described
below:

Activating the childproof lock

Unlock the vehicle and open the door in
which you wish to activate the childproof
lock.

With the door open, rotate the groove in the
door using the ignition key, clockwise for
the left hand side doors 

›››

 and anti-

clockwise for the right hand side doors.

Deactivating the childproof lock

Unlock the vehicle and open the door
whose childproof lock you want to deacti-
vate.

With the door open, rotate the groove in the
door using the ignition key, anti-clockwise
for the left hand side doors 

›››

 and

clockwise for the right hand side doors.

Once the childproof lock is activated, the
door can only be opened from the outside.

Rear lid

Introduction

The rear lid unlocks and locks together with
the doors.

On vehicles with Keyless Access, the rear lid
unlocks automatically when it is opened

›››

.

WARNING

Careless and unsuitable locking, opening
and closing of the rear lid can cause acci-
dents and serious injury.

The rear lid must not be opened when the

reverse or rear fog lights are lit. This may
damage the tail lights.

Do not close the rear lid by pushing it

down with your hand on the rear window.
The glass could smash. Risk of injury!

Ensure the rear lid is locked after closing

it. If not, it may open unexpectedly while
driving.

Closing the rear lid without observing

and ensuring it is clear could cause serious
injury to you and to third parties. Make sure
that no one is in the path of the rear lid.

Never drive with the rear lid open or half-

closed, exhaust gases may penetrate into
the interior of the vehicle. Danger of poi-
soning!
