Alarm System

The alarm system monitors the following alarm contacts:

  1. Alarm contacts in doors, luggage compartment lids and headlights.
  2. Passenger compartment monitoring system:
    Movement inside this area when the vehicle is locked, e.g. attempted theft by breaking a window.
  3. Inclination sensor (country-specific equipment: Tilting of the vehicle (e.g. attempt to tow the vehicle)).

If one of these alarm contacts is triggered, the alarm signal sounds for approx. 30 seconds and the emergency flasher comes on.

The alarm is triggered again after a 5 second interval. This cycle is repeated up to ten times (country-dependent).

Information
Depending on the country, the alarm system is automatically activated 30 seconds after closing the last door or the luggage compartment lid if the vehicle key is removed from the ignition lock. This is also the case if the vehicle has not been locked.

Passenger compartment monitoring system and the inclination sensor are switched off. If a door or luggage compartment lid is opened, the alarm is triggered.

  • Always lock the vehicle when leaving it.
  • Inform any persons remaining in the vehicle that the alarm system will be triggered if the door is opened.

To deactivate the triggered alarm system:

  • Unlock the vehicle or switch on the ignition.

Switching the alarm system on/off

  • The alarm system is activated when the vehicle is locked.
  • The alarm system is deactivated when the vehicle is unlocked.

Information
If you unlock the vehicle with the emergency key in the door lock, you must switch the ignition on within 15 seconds of opening the door in order to prevent the alarm system from being triggered.

The time it takes to trigger the alarm system differs depending on the country.


Switching off the alarm system after the alarm has been triggered

    Switch on the ignition.

Switching off passenger compartment monitoring system and inclination sensor

If people or animals are remaining in the locked vehicle or the vehicle is being transported on a train or ship, for example, the passenger compartment monitoring system and inclination sensor must be switched off temporarily.

  1. Please see chapter "Locking the doors" on page 78.
  • Inform any persons remaining in the vehicle that the alarm system will be triggered if the door is opened.

Information
The passenger compartment monitoring system and inclination sensor remain switched off if the vehicle automatically locks itself 30 seconds after being unlocked, as none of the doors have been opened.
