APERTURA Y CIERRE DEL MALETERO

CAUTION

Do not open the luggage compartment if a cycle rack is fitted. Remove any cycles and/or racks before opening the luggage compartment.

CAUTION

The Smart key may not be detected if it is placed within a metal container, or if it is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen, such as a smart phone, laptop (including in a laptop bag), games console, etc.

CAUTION

The vehicle must not be driven with the luggage compartment lid unlatched and not completely closed.

CAUTION

Any items placed in the luggage compartment should be arranged to allow the lid to be completely closed and securely latched.

CAUTION

Do not repeatedly attempt to close the luggage compartment after it automatically re-opens, or the latch may overheat. If the cause of the automatic re-opening cannot be determined, then unlock all of the doors and the luggage compartment with the Smart key. Make sure that all of the doors, the bonnet, and the luggage compartment are completely closed and then lock the vehicle again with the Smart key.

To open the luggage compartment, press the luggage compartment exterior release button (arrowed), if the vehicle is not locked. Alternatively, press the relevant Smart key button. See DESBLOQUEO DEL VEHÍCULO.

To close the luggage compartment, lower the luggage compartment lid to the fully latched/closed position.

Vehicles without a powered luggage compartment lid, have a hold open feature that may be useful if the vehicle is on a steep incline or being used in adverse weather conditions. After opening the luggage compartment lid to the fully open position, then push up slightly further to enable it to be mechanically held in this position. A resistance will be felt to confirm engagement. More effort will be required to close the luggage compartment lid.

Powered luggage compartments can also be opened by pressing the interior release button, located on the driver's side lower facia. When the lid is fully open, press the button again to close.

NOTES

If the button is pressed again, before the luggage compartment lid is fully open, then movement of the lid will stop.

WARNING

While the powered luggage compartment is open, the locking latch is exposed. Do not attempt to manually close the latch, as it may also automatically soft-close and trap items or body parts.

Powered luggage compartments can also be closed by pressing the luggage compartment close button.

NOTES

If an obstruction is detected, the powered luggage compartment lid will return to the fully open position. Remove any obstruction and then press the close button again.

If the luggage compartment lid is opened, after the vehicle has been Single locked (see CIERRE SENCILLO) or Double locked (see CIERRE CON ENCLAVAMIENTO), then make sure that the Smart key remains outside of the vehicle and is less than one metre away from the rear of the vehicle, so that the luggage compartment lid will then lock again after closing. The hazard warning lamps will flash once to confirm.

If a valid Smart key is detected within the vehicle, or a valid Smart key is not detected within a metre of the rear of the vehicle, then the luggage compartment lid will re-open to the unlatched position and an audible mislock warning will sound. This may also prevent the operation of the close button, for vehicles with a powered luggage compartment lid.

NOTES

Do not store any valid Smart keys inside the vehicle.
