Alarm System and Passenger Compartment Monitoring

The alarm system monitors the following alarm contacts:

  1. Alarm contacts in doors, tailgate, hood and headlights.
  2. Passenger compartment monitoring system: Movement in the interior when the vehicle is locked, e.g. attempted theft after breaking a window.
  3. Inclination sensor: Vehicle incline (e.g., during an attempt to tow the vehicle away).

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

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