Keyless Drive* - remote control key range
In order to unlock the doors or tailgate automatically without pressing a button on the remote control key1, a remote control key must be within approx. 1.5 metres from the car's door handle or tailgate.
The person who wishes to lock or unlock a door must have the remote control key with him or her. It is not possible to lock or unlock a door if the remote control key is on the opposite side of the car.
The red rings in the above figure indicate the range covered by the system's antennas.
If all remote control keys are removed from the car when the engine is running or key position I or II is active, and if all doors are closed, then a warning message is shown in the information display in the combined instrument panel and an audio reminder signal sounds at the same time.
When the remote control key has been returned to the car, the warning message goes off and the audible reminder ceases once either/or:
- a door has been opened and closed
- the remote control key has been inserted in the ignition switch
- The OK button has been pressed.
