The locking function may be affected if you grasp the door handle while the vehicle is being locked.

The system will either unlock all the doors or one door only, depending on the settings you have chosen on the sound system or MMI*.

Please note the following points if the vehicle is left parked for long periods:

  • Х To save electrical power, the proximity sensors are switched off after a few days. You will then need to pull the door handle once to unlock the vehicle, and a second time to open it.
  • Х To prevent the battery from becoming discharged and thus maintain the vehicle's starting ability for as long as possible, the power management system will gradually switch off convenience functions that are not required. In this case you may not be able to unlock the vehicle with this convenience function.
