General information
Each remote control contains a rechargeable
battery that is recharged when it is in the igni-
tion lock while the car is being driven. You
should therefore use each remote control at
least twice a year to maintain the charge status.
In vehicles equipped with Comfort Access
*, the
remote control contains a replaceable battery,
page 30.
If more than one remote control unit is used, the
settings called up and implemented depend on
which remote control is recognized when the
car is unlocked, refer to Personal Profile,
page 20.
In addition, information about service require-
ments is stored in the remote control, refer to
Service data in the remote control, page 151.
New remote controls
Your MINI dealer can supply new remote con-
trols as additional units or as replacements in the
event of loss.
Integrated key
Press button 1 to release the key.
The integrated key fits the following locks:
> Driver's door, page 24
> MINI Convertible: glove compartment,
page 91.
> MINI Convertible: locking the rear seat
backrest, page 100.
Personal Profile
The concept
The functions of your MINI can be set individu-
ally. By means of Personal Profiles, most of these
settings are stored for the remote control cur-
rently in use. When you unlock the car, the
remote control is recognized and the settings
stored for it are called up and implemented.
This means that your settings will be activated
for you, even if in the meantime your car was
used by someone else with another remote
control and the corresponding settings.
At most three remote controls can be set for
three different people. A prerequisite is that
each person uses a separate remote control.
