The vehicle will be locked again automatically if you do not open one of the doors, the boot lid or the bonnet within 60 seconds after unlocking the car. This function prevents the vehicle from remaining unlocked if the unlocking button is pressed by mistake.
The system will either unlock all the doors or certain doors only, depending on the settings you have chosen on the MMI.
On vehicles with the advanced key* the selector lever must be in P, otherwise it will not be possible to lock the vehicle.
Do not leave anyone (especially children) in the car if it is locked from the outside and the deadlock mechanism is activated: the doors and windows cannot then be opened from the inside.
