Avoiding false alarms

  • 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 temporarily be switched off.
  • Always close the sliding/lifting roof or the Panorama roof system, and all door windows.
  • Do not leave a cell phone switched on in the vehicle.
  • Always turn off the alarm system before you attach or uncouple a trailer. The alarm system could trigger an alarm unintentionally.

Switching off the alarm system if it is triggered

  • Unlock the vehicle or
  • Switch ignition on.

The following alarm contacts are monitored

  1. Alarm contacts in doors, tailgate, engine compartment lid and headlights
  2. Passenger compartment monitoring:
    Movement in the interior when the vehicle is locked, e.g. attempted theft after breaking a window.
  3. Inclination sensor: Tilting of the vehicle (e.g. attempt to tow away the vehicle).
  4. Trailer hitch socket, e.g. unauthorized unhitching of the trailer.

If one of these alarm contacts is interrupted, the alarm horn sounds for approx. 30 seconds and the emergency flasher flashes.

After 5 seconds of interruption, the alarm is triggered again. This cycle is repeated ten times.

Switching on

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

Switching off

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


  • If you unlock the vehicle with the emergency key in the door lock, you must switch the ignition on (ignition lock position 1) within 10 seconds of opening the door in order to prevent the alarm system from being triggered.

The vehicle is locked again automatically after 20 seconds if no doors are opened.
