Activating and deactivating alarms*
Arming the alarm
- press the remote control key's lock button .
- touch the marked surface on the outside of the door handles or the boot lid's rubberised pressure plate1.
If the car is equipped with both keyless locking/unlocking* and a power-operated boot lid, the button on the underside of the boot lid can also be used to lock the car and arm the car alarm.
Deactivate the alarm
- press the remote control key's unlock button
- grip one of the door handles or press gently on the boot lid's rubberised pressure plate1.
Deactivate the alarm without a functioning remote control key
The car can be unlocked and disarmed even if the remote control key does not work, e.g. if the remote control key's battery is dead.
Turn the start knob clockwise and release it.
Switching off a triggered alarm
Press the remote control key's unlock button or set the car in ignition position I by turning the start knob clockwise and then releasing.
Automatic arming and rearming of the alarm
Automatic rearming of the alarm prevents the car being left with the alarm disarmed unintentionally.
If the car is unlocked with the remote control key (which disarms the alarm) but none of the doors or the boot lid is opened within two minutes, then the alarm is automatically re-armed. The car is relocked at the same time.
In certain markets, the alarm is armed automatically after a certain delay after the driver's door has been opened and closed without being locked.
