KESSY Locking and Starting System, electronic

Convenient and secure access to your car

The KESSY electronic locking and starting system offers you convenient and secure access to your car. The system has two components: the transmitter and the starter module. You just carry the transmitter - the starter module is built into the dashboard. Within a radius of 1.5 metres around the car rolling codes are exchanged between the key and the car and the transmitter switches the system to 'Open'. By the time you're behind the wheel the steering lock has been released and the electrical system activated. If the key has been left inside the car by mistake, the system will refuse to lock it.

Provided the driver has the key on their person while inside the car, the engine can be started simply by pressing the starter button down fully. But the car key can also be used like a conventional key to operate the central locking. When leaving the car, you simply need to press the small locking button on the door handles in order to lock the vehicle. For certain models, Keyless entry offers even more comfort and convenience for the saloon. The contactless Easy Open function uses additional sensors in the rear of the vehicle to open the luggage compartment lid simply by flicking your foot. These sensors identify the key, and the system automatically opens the luggage compartment lid.
