Locking/unlocking the boot lid
Unlocking the boot lid with the remote control key
There are two different ways to unlock the boot lid
The lock and alarm indicator on the instrument panel extinguishes in order to show that the alarm is not armed for the whole of the car.
The alarm's level and movement sensors and the sensors for opening the boot lid are disconnected.
The boot lid is unlocked, but remains closed while the doors remain locked and their alarm functions armed.
To open the boot lid, grip the rubber pressure plate beneath the boot lid handle and open the boot lid.
If the tailgate is not opened within 2 minutes then it is relocked and the alarm is re-armed.
Keyless unlocking of the boot lid*
The boot lid is held closed by an electrical lock. You simply need to have the remote control key in the vicinity e.g. in a pocket or a bag.
- 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.
