The alarm is triggered if anyone breaks a window, enters the passenger compartment or moves inside the vehicle.

If the vehicle automatically locks itself again (as happens if a door or the boot is not opened within 30 seconds of unlocking), the monitoring system is automatically activated.

Locking the vehicle with exterior perimeter monitoring only

Deactivate the interior volumetric monitoring to avoid the unwanted triggering of the alarm, in certain cases such as:

  • Slightly open window.
  • Washing the vehicle.
  • Changing a wheel.
  • Towing the vehicle.
  • Transport on a ship or ferry.

Deactivating interior volumetric monitoring

  • Switch off the ignition and within 10 seconds press the alarm button until the indicator lamp is on fixed.
  • Exit the vehicle.
  • Immediately lock the vehicle using the remote control or by pressing one of the front door handles.

Only exterior perimeter monitoring is activated; the red indicator lamp in the button flashes every second.

To take effect, this deactivation must be performed whenever the ignition is switched off.

Reactivating interior volumetric monitoring

  • Deactivate exterior perimeter monitoring by unlocking the vehicle using the remote control or by pressing a door handle.

    The indicator lamp in the button goes off.

  • Reactivate the full alarm system by locking the vehicle using the remote control or by pressing one of the front door handles.

    The red indicator lamp in the button once again flashes every second.

Triggering of the alarm

This is indicated by sounding of the siren and flashing of the direction indicators for 30 seconds.

The interior volumetric and anti-tilt monitoring functions remain active until the alarm has been triggered ten times in succession.

When the vehicle is unlocked, rapid flashing of the indicator lamp in the button indicates that the alarm was triggered during your absence. When the ignition is switched on, this flashing stops immediately.

Failure of the remote control

To deactivate the monitoring functions:

  • Unlock the vehicle using the key in the driver's door lock.
  • Open the door; the alarm is triggered.
  • Switch on the ignition; this stops the alarm. The indicator lamp in the button goes off.

Locking the vehicle without activating the alarm

  • Lock or deadlock the vehicle using the key (built-in the remote control) in the driver's door lock.

Automatic activation

(Depending on version)

The system is activated automatically 2 minutes after the last door or the boot is closed.

  • To avoid triggering the alarm on entering the vehicle, first press the unlocking button on the remote control or unlock the vehicle using the “Keyless Entry and Starting” system.

Malfunction

When the ignition is switched on, the fixed lighting of the red indicator lamp in the button indicates a system malfunction.
