Alarm system

The concept

The vehicle alarm system responds:

> When a door, the hood or the trunk lid is opened
> To movements inside the vehicle: interior motion sensor,
> When the car's inclination changes, e.g. if an attempt is made to jack it up and steal the wheels or to raise it prior to towing away: tilt alarm sensor,
> When there has been an interruption of power supply from the battery

Depending on the market-specific  version, the alarm system briefly signals unauthorized entry attempts by:

> An acoustic alarm
> Switching onthe hazard warning flashers

Tilt alarm sensor

The tilt of the vehicle is monitored. The alarm system reacts, e.g. to attempts to steal a wheel or tow the vehicle.

Interior motion sensor

Coupe

In order for the interior motion sensor to function properly, the windows and glass roofmust be completely closed.

Convertible

The interior of the car is monitored up to the height of the seat cushions. This way, the antitheft alarm system including the interior motion sensor are armed, even if the convertible top is open. Falling objects, e.g. tree leaves, may trigger a false alarm, refer to Avoiding false alarms.

Avoiding unintentional alarms

The tilt alarm sensor and interior motion sensor may be switched off at the same time. This prevents unintentional alarms, e.g. in the following situations:

> In duplex garages
> During transport on car-carrying trains, boats/ships or on a trailer
> When animals are to remain in the vehicle
