Doors and central  
locking key  
Introduction to the topic  
If the doors are blocked without paying attention,  
it could cause serious injury.  
It is possible to lock and partly unlock the doors  
manually, e.g. For example, if the vehicle key or  
central locking fails.  
· When the vehicle is locked from the outside, the  
Power doors and windows cannot be opened  
from the inside.  
Central locking allows you to unlock and lock all  
doors, the boot lid and the fuel filler flap of the  
vehicle centrally.  
· Central locking locks all doors.  
By locking the vehicle from the inside, it is  
possible to prevent the inadvertent opening of  
the doors and the entry of unauthorized persons.  
In the event of an emergency or accident,  
however, if the doors are locked, access to the  
interior of the vehicle is made difficult and it is  
difficult to provide the necessary help.  
The vehicle can only be locked if the ignition is  
switched off or if the driver has gotten out of the  
vehicle with the engine off.  
If any door is not properly closed, it is indicated on  
the instrument panel display with a symbolic  
representation. Do not continue the march! Open  
the corresponding door and close it again.  
· Never leave a child or anyone who may need help  
alone inside the vehicle. With the central locking  
button, all doors can be locked from inside the  
vehicle, which can cause them to be locked in  
the vehicle. People locked in the vehicle may be  
exposed to very high or very low temperatures.  
The display is also displayed with the ignition  
switched off and goes out a few seconds after the  
vehicle has been locked with the doors closed.  
· Depending on the season of the year, very high  
or very low temperatures can be reached in a  
closed vehicle, which can cause very serious  
injuries and illnesses or even death, especially  
to small children.  
If a door is not properly closed, it could open  
unexpectedly while driving and cause serious

· Never leave anyone inside the locked vehicle. In  
an emergency, she would not be able to get out  
of the vehicle or take care of herself.  
· When closing the door, make sure that it is fully  
seated. The door should be flush with the  
adjoining parts of the bodywork.  
To avoid damage to the vehicle, when performing

Some settings can be saved in the

The doors, even when secured by the door catch,  
could close by themselves in high winds or if the  
vehicle is on an uphill grade, causing injury.

them by the handle.
