Seat Leon >> Safety system “Safe”

This is an anti-theft device consisting of a double lock for the door locks and a deactivation function for the boot in order to make forced entry more difficult.

Activation
The “safe” system is activated when the vehicle is locked using the key or the remote control.

To activate this system with the key, rotate the key once in the door lock cylinder in the locking direction.

To activate the system using the remote control, press the lock button on the remote once.

When this system is activated, it is not possible to open the doors normally, from the outside or the inside. The boot/tailgate may not be opened. The central locking button does not work.

Voluntary deactivation
The “Safe” system can be deactivated voluntarily by the user.

This is done by locking two times in quick succession (in under 2 seconds).

This double locking can be executed using the key or the remote control.

Using the key, rotate the lock cylinder twice in the locking direction.

To activate the system using the remote control, press the lock button on the remote twice.

When the “Safe” system is deactivated, the alarm volumetric sensor is also deactivated.

When the “Safe” system is deactivated, the doors are locked using the simple locking system, meaning that they may be opened from the interior but not from the exterior.

Involuntary deactivation
The methods described for deactivation of the “Safe” system may be executed involuntarily (for example, if we press the button want to lock the vehicle, and it locks as a result, however, we are not sure because we want to lock the vehicle, and it locks as a result, however, we are not sure that it is locked and we press the button once more within 2 seconds, we will have deactivated the “Safe” system).

Deactivation when opening
To deactivate the system on opening, see “Selective unlocking system*”

“Safe” status
On the front left-hand side door, there is a light indicator visible from the outside of the vehicle that indicates the “Safe” system status.

We can see that the “Safe” system is activated, by the flashing of the light indicator . The indicator will flash on in all vehicles, whether they are fitted with an alarm or not, and until the vehicle is unlocked.

We can see that the “Safe” system is deactivated, when the light indicator flashes about seven times and turns off. If the vehicle is not fitted with an alarm then it remains off. If the vehicle is fitted with an alarm, once 28 seconds have passed since the indicator is switched off, it will start to flash again and continue until the vehicle is unlocked once more.

Remember:

Safe activated with or without alarm: Continuous flashing of the indicator.
Safe deactivated without alarm: The indicator flashes about seven times and turns off.
Safe deactivated with alarm: The indicator flashes seven times, turns off and then continues to flash after 28 seconds.

WARNING

No one should remain in the vehicle if the “Safe” deadlock mechanism has been activated. It is not possible to open the doors from the inside or the outside and this would make any outside intervention difficult in case of emergency. Danger of death. People could become trapped inside in an emergency.
