Press the remote control key button to lock.

The driver's door must be closed in order for the lock sequence to be activatedIf the car is equipped with keyless locking/unlocking then all side doors must be closed.. If any of the other doors or the boot lid is open, then these are not locked and their alarms armed* until they are closed. The alarm's movement detectors* are activated when all the doors and the boot lid are closed and locked.

Note

Be aware of the risk of locking the remote control key/Key Tag in the car.

A remote control key/Key Tag left in the car will be deactivated when the car is locked and the alarm is armed using another valid key. The "Double lock" function is also deactivated.

The deactivated key is reactivated when the car is unlocked.

If it is not possible to lock or unlock with the remote control key, the battery may be discharged - in which case, lock or unlock the driver's door with the detachable key blade.
