Activating and deactivating alarms
The alarm is activated when the car is locked, and is deactivated when the car is unlocked.
Deactivate the alarm without a functioning key
The car can be unlocked and disarmed even if the key does not work, e.g. if the key's battery is discharged.
Open the driver's door with the detachable key blade.
The alarm is triggered.
Place the key on the key symbol in the back-up reader in the tunnel console's storage compartment.
Depress the brake pedal and select a gear.
The alarm is deactivated.
When the key shall be read by the back-up reader, make sure that the storage compartment is separate from other nearby car keys, metal objects and electronics (e.g. mobile phones, tablets, laptops or chargers). These objects may disrupt the functions.
Switching off a triggered alarm
Press the key's unlock button or depress the brake pedal and select a gear.
