CAN signals

Note
On vehicles without code 876, the left and right reading lamps are not installed on the underside of the inside rearview mirror unit but directly in the overhead control panel control unit. They are nevertheless actuated in the same way as on vehicles with code 876.
Dome lamp ON and OFF switch (1) Interior lights (5)
Pressing the dome lamp ON and OFF switch (1) switches the left and right front interior illumination (5) in the overhead control panel on or off.
Door contact ON and OFF switch (2)
Pressing the door contact ON and OFF switch (2) causes it to engage further in, which deactivates the automatic control for the interior illumination.
Pressing the door contact ON and OFF switch (2) again causes it to disengage so that it is flush with the other switches. This reactivates the automatic control for the interior illumination.
The automatic interior illumination is switched on when
• The vehicle is unlocked
• The transmitter key is removed from the ignition lock
• A door is opened
On vehicles with code 876, the automatic interior illumination only switches on in darkness.
The interior illumination switches back off after a delay.
Left reading lamp switch (3) Left reading lamp (code 876) (9)
Pressing the left reading lamp switch (3) switches the left reading lamp (9) on the underside of the inside rearview mirror unit on or off.
Right reading lamp switch (4) Right reading lamp (code 876) (10)
Pressing the right reading lamp switch (4) switches the right reading lamp (10) on the underside of the inside rearview mirror unit on or off.
SOS pushbutton switch (6) (code 359)
Pressing the SOS pushbutton switch (6) transmits an emergency call manually. An LED in the SOS pushbutton switch (6) flashes to indicate that an emergency call has been activated.
Note
The SOS pushbutton switch is integrated in the overhead control panel control unit but is read discretely by the emergency call system control unit (code 359).
Garage door opener button (7) (code 231) Garage door opener indicator lamp (8) (code 231)
To actuate the garage door opener, circuit 15R must be switched on and the corresponding garage door opener button (7) must be programmed for the relevant garage door.
Pressing one of the garage door opener buttons (7) opens or closes the garage door.
The transmitter transmits for as long as one of the garage door opener buttons (7) is pressed.
After a maximum of 20 seconds, the transmission is aborted and the garage door opener indicator lamp (8) flashes. Pressing the button again reactivates the transmission.
• For garage door systems with fixed code:
The garage door opener indicator lamp lights up permanently.
• For garage door systems with variable code:
The indicator lamp flashes briefly and then lights up for approx. two seconds. This is repeated for up to 20 seconds.
