Steering lock

Updated 7/23/2018

The steering lock makes steering difficult if the car is e.g. taken unlawfully.


  • The steering lock unlocks when the remote control key is in the ignition switch

    Cars with Keyless drive only need to have a remote control key inside the passenger compartment.

    and the START/STOP ENGINE button is depressed.
  • The steering lock locks when the driver's door is opened after the engine has been switched off.

A mechanical noise can be perceived when the steering lock unlocks or locks.
