RADIO-FREQUENCY REMOTE CONTROL PANEL DOOR LOCKS / ANTICREEPING ALARM SYSTEM


The radio-frequency panel can be used only:
- for initiation of operation of the central lock
- for turning on/switching off of the anticreeping alarm system

Prevention

Try not to allow excessive moistening of the panel and do not press without necessity of the management button on it.

- Range of operation of the panel makes about 3 m and can be to decrease at existence between it and the car of barriers and/or reflecting subjects. When using the panel direct it on the car.

Initiation of the uniform (central) lock

- Originators of this Management recommend use of a remote control panel for opening and closing of doors of the cars equipped with the central lock.
- When using the panel on it the control light-emitting diode should light up. The single / double blinking of fires of the alarm system testifies to serviceable reception of a signal of the panel by system of remote control by locks / the anticreeping alarm system.

Locking of the central lock

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Press the button (1) on a remote control. The red light-emitting diode on the panel - locks of all doors of the car thus should blink, including a door of a back are locked.

Prevention

For reasons of safety it is not necessary to lock locks of doors of the car at the switch of ignition turned in provision ASS or ON!


Unlocking of the central lock

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Press the button (2) on a remote control. The green light-emitting diode on the panel - locks of all doors thus should blink, including a door of a back are open.

Possible causes of failures of the central lock

Refusal of operation of the central lock on a signal of a remote control can occur only on one of the following reasons:
- Panel removal from the car is too great.
- Level of a charge of an element of a food of a remote control fell - make replacement.
- The panel repeatedly also was successfully used for management of activators of the central lock from too big distance - make its reprogramming (see below).
Open a car door by means of a key.

TURNING ON / SWITCHING OFF OF THE ANTICREEPING ALARM SYSTEM

The remote panel serves also for management of system of the anticreeping alarm system if that is established on the car.

Turning on of the anticreeping alarm system

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Take a key from the lock of ignition and close all doors.
2. Press the button (1) on a remote control for locking of the central lock (and turning on of the anticreeping alarm system on English models).
3. Repeatedly press the button (1) within the next 10 seconds for turning on of the anticreeping alarm system.

Switching off of the anticreeping alarm system

PERFORMANCE ORDER
