Turning off the accessory alarm sensors

In certain situations it may be desirable to turn off the accessory inclination and movement alarm sensors if, for example, you drive your vehicle onto a ferry where the rocking of the boat could trigger the alarm or if a pet is left in the vehicle with the doors locked.

The vehicle's menu system is used for turning off these sensors (see page 133 for a description of the menu system).

1. Go into the menu under Car settings.

2. Select Reduced Guard (Press OK/ MENU to choose).

3. Two alternatives are now available:

Activate once. If this alternative is selected, Reduced guard See manual will appear in the instrument panel display and the accessory inclination and movement alarm sensors will be deactivated when the vehicle is locked.

Ask when exiting. If this alternative is selected, a message will appear in the center console display each time the engine is turned off. Press OK/MENU to accept and the accessory inclination and movement alarm sensors will be deactivated when the vehicle is locked.

Press EXIT to cancel.

4. Press OK/MENU and lock the vehicle.

The next time the engine is started, the alarm system will be reset and Full guard will appear in the instrument panel display. The accessory inclination and movement alarm sensors will be reactivated.

In either of the alternatives, if you prefer not to deactivate the accessory inclination and movement alarm sensors, do not make a choice in the menu or press EXIT and lock the vehicle.
