Skoda Fabia: Remote control

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

You can use the remote control key to:

  • unlock and lock the vehicle,
  • unlocking boot lid;
  • open and close the windows » page 53, Window convenience operation.

The transmitter with the battery is housed in the handle of the remote control key. The receiver is located in the interior of the vehicle. The operating range of the remote control key is approx. 30 m. But this range of the remote control can be reduced if the batteries are weak.

The key has a fold-open key bit which can be used for unlocking and locking the car manually and also for starting the engine.

The system must be initialised by a specialist garage if a lost key is replaced or if the receiver unit has been repaired or replaced. Only then can the remote control key be used again.


  • The remote control is automatically deactivated when the ignition is switched on.
  • Operation of the remote control may temporarily be affected by interference from transmitters close to the car operating in the same frequency range (e.g.

    mobile phone, TV transmitter).

  • The battery must be replaced if the central locking or anti-theft alarm system does react to the remote control at less than 3 metres away » page 43.
  • If the driver door is open, the vehicle cannot be locked using the remote control key.
