For manual use
The remote control key's functions for e.g. locking/unlocking that are activated by pressing on or have a range that extends approx. 20 metres (65 feet) from the car.
If the car does not verify a button being pressed - move closer and try again.
For keyless* use
The marked area in the illustration shows areas covered by the system's antennas.
For keyless use, a remote control key or the button-less key (Key Tag) must be within a semicircular area with a radius of approx. 1.5 metres (5 feet) on both long sides and approx. 1 metre (3 feet) from the tailgate.
The remote control key functions may be disrupted by surrounding radio waves, buildings, topographical conditions, etc. The car can always be locked/unlocked with the key blade.
If the remote control key is removed from the car
If the remote control key is removed from the car when the engine is running, the warning message Car key not found Removed from car is shown in the driver display and an acoustic reminder sounds when the last door is closed.
The message extinguishes when the key is returned to the car, followed by a press of the right-hand keypad's O button, or when the last door is closed.
