Arming the alarm

The system is armed as soon as the vehicle is locked and acts as a deterrent to unauthorised persons who attempt to open the doors, bonnet or luggage compartment, or remove the audio system.

The alarm sounds for 30 seconds if an unauthorised person opens a door, the luggage compartment or the bonnet. The hazard flasher lights will flash for five minutes.

Any attempt to start the engine without a valid key or to remove the audio system sounds the alarm again.

Automatic arming delay

The 12 seconds arming delay begins when the bonnet, luggage compartment and all doors are closed.
