2020 Defender


To unlock the vehicle and disarm the alarm system, press the smart key's unlock button.

The vehicle unlocks in one of two ways:

  1. 2-stage unlocking on: Unlocks the driver's door only. A second press is required to unlock the remaining doors and the taildoor.

  2. 2-stage unlocking off: Unlocks all of the doors and the taildoor on the first press.

To change the vehicle’s 2-stage unlocking status, press the smart key's lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The hazard warning lights flash twice to confirm the change.

2-stage unlocking can also be set via the Vehicle menu in the touchscreen. See SYSTEM SETTINGS.


If an audible warning sounds when the vehicle is unlocked, there may be a fault with the alarm sensors. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer as soon as possible.
