Do not repeatedly press the buttons of your remote control out of range and out of sight of your vehicle. You run the risk of stopping it from working and the remote control would have to be reinitialised.

The remote control does not operate when the key is in the ignition, even when the ignition is switched off, except for reinitialisation.

As a safety precaution (with children on board), remove the key from the ignition when you leave the vehicle, even for a short time.

Do not make any modifi cations to the electronic engine immobiliser system; this could cause malfunctions.

When purchasing a second-hand vehicle
