For cars with the keyless start and lock system* the remote control key does not need to be inserted into the ignition switch but can be stored in e.g. a pocket. For more information on the keyless start and lock system, see Keyless drive.

Insert the remote control key

  1. Hold the end of the remote control key with the detachable key blade and insert the remote control key in the ignition switch.
  2. Then press the remote control key in the ignition switch up to its end position.


Foreign objects in the ignition switch can impair the function or destroy the lock.

Do not press in the remote control key incorrectly turned - hold the end with the detachable key blade, see Detachable key blade - detaching/attaching.

Remove the remote control key
