The vehicle key will lock or unlock the vehicle only when the battery has enough power and the key is located within a few metres of the vehicle.

If the turn signals do not flash as confirmation, at least one of the doors or the tailgate is not closed.

The vehicle cannot be locked using the vehicle key if the driver door is still open. The vehicle will lock again automatically within a few seconds of being unlocked if you do not open one of the doors or the tailgate. This function prevents the vehicle from remaining unlocked if the unlocking button is pressed by mistake.
