WARNING

Obstacle detection does not react to soft, light and thin objects, such as small fingers. These or other parts of the body could be pressed against the door frame, for instance. Obstacle detection cannot prevent entrapment in these instances. There is a risk of injury.

When opening and closing the electric sliding door, make sure that nobody is within the operating range of the sliding door. If someone becomes trapped, press the button again to stop the sliding door.

Operation and obstacle detection

Your vehicle can be equipped with an electric sliding door on the left and/or right-hand side.

The electric sliding door is operated using the following:

  • the sliding door buttons on the centre console

  • the sliding door button on the door sill (B-pillar)

  • the door handle (inside or outside)

  • the key

Close the sliding door once by hand if there has been a malfunction or an interruption in the voltage supply.

If the electric sliding door is obstructed while opening, it moves a few centimetres in the opposite direction and stops.

If the sliding door is obstructed during the closing procedure, it opens fully again.

If an obstacle is detected:

  • 3 warning tones sound from the instrument cluster.

  • the indicator lamp in the upper mbsymb1_inv_00c5.png sliding door button on the centre console lights up.

  • 3 warning tones also sound from the electric sliding door control unit.

The indicator lamp in the upper mbsymb1_inv_00c5.png sliding door button on the centre console is lit whenever the sliding door is open. The sliding door can be electrically closed while driving, but cannot be electrically opened.

In unfavourable operating conditions, e.g. frost, ice or heavy soiling, you can press and hold the relevant sliding door button. The electric sliding door moves with increased force. Observe that, in such circumstances, the obstacle detection is less sensitive. To stop the movement, release the sliding door button.

Opening/closing the sliding door with the key

To open/close: press the mbsymb1_inv_0035.png button for over 0.5 seconds.

The sliding door unlocks and opens or closes.

The sliding door stops moving.

If the vehicle is equipped with two electric sliding doors, the key can only be programmed for one of the sliding doors.

To program the key: make sure that the sliding doors are closed.

Turn the key to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press the lower mbsymb1_inv_00c6.png sliding door button on the centre console for the desired sliding door for approximately 5 seconds more.

After it is programmed successfully, the mbsymb1_inv_00c5.png indicator lamp in the corresponding upper sliding door button flashes four times. A tone sounds 3 times as confirmation.

Opening/closing the sliding door with the door handle

Briefly push the interior/exterior door handle.

The sliding door opens or closes.
