Reset sequence for pinch protection

If a problem occurs with the electrical functions for the electric windows, a reset sequence can be tested.

Electrically-operated sun blinds* have a reset sequence that can be tested if necessary.


If the starter battery is disconnected, the automatic opening and closing function must be reset to work properly. A reset must take place for pinch protection to work.

If a problem persists, or if it concerns the sunroof, contact a workshop1.
