Principle of operation

The alarm is a deterrent against unauthorised access to your vehicle through the doors and the bonnet. It also protects the audio unit.

Triggering the alarm

Once armed, the alarm is triggered in any of the following ways:
Х If someone opens a door, the luggage compartment or the bonnet without a valid key or remote control.

Х If someone removes the audio system.

Х If someone turns the ignition to position I, II or III without a valid key.

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm horn will sound for 30 seconds and the hazard warning flashers will flash for five minutes.

Any further attempts to perform one of the above will trigger the alarm again.
