Locking/unlocking the tailgate
Unlocking the tailgate with the remote control key
There are two different ways to unlock the tailgate
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 tailgate are disconnected.
The tailgate is unlocked, but remains closed while the doors remain locked and their alarm functions armed.
To open the tailgate, grip the rubber pressure plate beneath the tailgate handle and open the tailgate.
If the tailgate is not opened within 2 minutes then it is relocked and the alarm is re-armed.
