Fig. 31 Vehicle rear: foot motion (example)

The luggage compartment lid can be opened and closed automatically 1).

Requirements: you must be carrying your convenience key with you. The ignition must be switched off. You must be standing at the center behind the luggage compartment lid. Depending on vehicle equipment, it may also be possible to stand slightly off-center at the back of your vehicle.

    Make sure you have firm footing. The luggage compartment lid will open or close 1) once the system detects the movement. The automatic opening or closing will be canceled if you repeat one of the movements described.

WARNING

Observe the safety precautions.

WARNING

Please note that when you have the convenience key with you, the sensor-controlled luggage compartment lid could open or close unexpectedly during activity near the rear of the vehicle. This increases the risk of an accident.

Note

Please note that when you have the convenience key with you, the sensor-controlled luggage compartment lid could open or close unexpectedly during activity near the rear of the vehicle (for example, the lid could hit the ceiling in a garage).

Tips

The luggage compartment lid will only open or close 1) if you perform the movement as described. This prevents the luggage compartment lid from opening or closing due to similar movements 1), such as when you walk between the rear of the vehicle and your garage door. In some situations, the function may be limited or temporarily unavailable.

This may happen if:

  • You are standing too close to the bumper or too far away from it
  • The luggage compartment lid was closed or opened immediately beforehand
  • You park close to a hedge and the branches move back and forth under the vehicle for a long period of time
  • You clean your vehicle, for example with a pressure washer or in a car wash
  • There is heavy rain
  • The bumper is very dirty, for example after driving on salt-covered roads
  • There is interference to the vehicle key's radio signal, such as from mobile devices or remote controls

1) The closing function applies to vehicles that also have automatic luggage compartment lid operation.
