Disarming the alarm

The anti-theft alarm system can be deactivated at any time Ц even when the alarm is sounding Ц by unlocking the vehicle from the outside.

The anti-theft alarm system for the tailgate is deactivated if the tailgate is unlocked using the button on the remote control or passive key. On vehicles with keyless entry, it is deactivated if a passive key is located within the tailgate detection range when the tailgate is opened.

After closure, the alarm is once again armed.
