Function Action
Locking the vehicle and activating the deadlock mechanism. Press the button  on the vehicle key once.
Locking the vehicle without activating the deadlock mechanism. Press the button on the vehicle key twice.
Press the central locking button in the driver door once.

The deadlock mechanism blocks the door opening levers if the vehicle has been locked. This makes it more difficult to break into the vehicle. The doors can no longer be opened from the inside  .

When the ignition is switched off, the instrument cluster display will inform you about the activated deadlock mechanism (SAFE locking or SAFELOCK).

The following applies when the deadlock mechanism is deactivated:

  • The vehicle can be unlocked and opened from the inside using the door release lever.
  • The vehicle cannot be unlocked from the inside using the central locking button.
  • The anti-theft alarm is active.
  • The interior monitoring system and anti-tow alarm are deactivated.
