Replacing the battery for the remote control
If the indicator lamp in the remote control вЂ‰ does not light up when the button is pressed, the battery in the remote control has to be changed soon.
The battery is located on the rear side of the remote control underneath a cover. Use a flat object such as a coin to turn the slot anti-clockwise to open the cover вЂ‰ (arrow). When changing the batteries, ensure you insert them the right way (poles) and that they are the same type вЂ‰.
The receiver is in the vehicle interior. The remote control key has a range of several hundred metres when the batteries are fully charged. Obstacles between the remote control and the vehicle, bad weather conditions and weak batteries in the remote control can considerably reduce the range.
An optimal range is achieved if the remote control is held vertically with the aerial вЂ‰ at the top. Do not hold the aerial with your fingers or the palm of your hand.
The distance between the remote control and the vehicle must be at least two metres.
Discharged batteries must be disposed of in accordance with regulations governing the protection of the environment.
The battery in the remote control may contain perchlorate. Please comply with legislation regarding disposal.
Protect the remote control against inadvertent operation in order to prevent the auxiliary heater from being switched on unintentionally.
