Keyless unlocking of the boot lid*

With keyless locking and unlocking, it is sufficient to touch the touch-sensitive surface on the boot lid handle to unlock the boot lid.

Note

One of the car's remote control keys must be within range behind the car for unlocking to work.

P5-1817-S60-Boot lid handle

The boot lid is held closed by an electrical lock.

To open:

Press gently on the rubberised pressure plate beneath the boot lid handle.

The lock is released.

Lift by the outside handle in order to open the boot lid.

Important

  • Minimal force is required to release the boot lid's lock - just gently press the rubberised panel.
  • Do not place the lift force on the rubber panel when opening the boot lid - lift the handle. Using too much force may damage the electrical contacts on the rubber panel.

It is also possible to open the boot lid hands-free with a foot movement under the rear bumper:

Kicking motion within the detector's valid activation area.

Make one slow, forward kicking motion under the left part of the rear bumper. Then take a step back. The bumper must not be touched.

A short acoustic signal sounds when opening is activated – the boot lid is opened.

If several kicking motions take place without an approved remote control key being located behind the car, opening will not be possible until after a certain delay.

Do not leave your foot positioned under the car during the kicking motion. This could cause activation to fail.

Note

Pay attention to the possibility that the system may be activated in a car wash or similar if the remote key is within range.

Warning

Do not drive with an open boot lid! Toxic exhaust fumes could be drawn into the car through the cargo area.
