Depending on the vehicle equipment, you may have various options for unlocking and locking your vehicle. The settings in the MMI specify which doors will unlock.

Unlocking or locking using the vehicle key buttons

  • To unlock the vehicle, press the button fig. 24.
  • To lock the vehicle, press the button once.

Unlocking or locking using the sensors

Applies to: vehicles with convenience key

  • To unlock a door or the luggage compartment lid, grasp the door handle or luggage compartment lid handle.
  • To lock the vehicle, close the door and touch the sensor on the door handle once fig. 26.

    Do not grasp the door handle while locking the vehicle, or else the vehicle will not lock. The door cannot be opened for a brief period directly after locking it. This way you have the opportunity to check if the doors locked correctly.

Deactivating the sensor unlocking function

Applies to: vehicles with convenience key

You can deactivate the unlock function with the convenience key (keyless access) for one locking and unlocking cycle.

  • Place the selector lever in the "P" position; otherwise, the vehicle cannot be locked.
  • Close the door.
  • Press the lock button on the convenience key and touch the sensor on the door handle (driver's door) one time within five seconds of pressing the button fig. 26. Do not grasp the door handle while locking the vehicle, or else the vehicle will not lock.
  • To check if the function has been deactivated, wait at least 10 seconds and pull the door handle again. The door should not open.

After that, it will only be possible to unlock the vehicle using the remote control key or by mechanically unlocking the lock cylinder. Keyless access will be active again after the next time the vehicle is locked/unlocked.

Unlocking and locking with the Audi connect vehicle control service!)

  • When unlocking or locking the vehicle, the convenience key cannot be more than approximately 4 feet (1.5 m) away from the door handle or luggage compartment.
