Anti-theft warning system

Three anti-theft alarm systems are available, depending on the market and model version:

  • The system with perimeter monitoring detects whenever the doors, the hood, the folding rear window and the liftgate are opened.
  • The system with perimeter and interior monitoring in addition detects unauthorised access, for example, through a broken window.
  • A Thatcham category I anti-theft alarm system (mainly for the British market) is fitted with a horn that has its own battery power supply; it also uses slightly different detection strategies.

The anti-theft alarm system outputs an acoustic and visual signal if unauthorised persons attempt to gain access to the vehicle.

As a visual warning, the system switches on the hazard warning lights, whilst the acoustic warning is done with the anti-theft alarm system horn or the horn with its own battery power supply.

When the ignition is switched off, the anti-theft alarm system is activated 20 seconds after any latch is activated, i.e. the hood, all doors, the folding rear window and the liftgate are alarmed, provided that they are fully closed.

If the hood, one of the doors, the folding rear window or the liftgate is not completely closed, it can be opened without the alarm being triggered since the system was not activated.

The anti-theft alarm system can be switched off by unlocking the vehicle either via the remote controls or the door lock.

NOTE: To switch off the alarm on a Thatcham category I anti-theft alarm system, the ignition must be switched on within 12 seconds of the door being unlocked with the key.

If the folding rear window or the liftgate is opened via the remote control, the anti-theft alarm system blocks the trigger for the alarm system or the interior monitoring (if fitted) for 20 seconds after closing.

NOTE: If a window is not fully closed, there is a risk that a false alarm will be triggered.
