ANTI-THEFT ALARM AND ENGINE IMMOBILISATION

Alarm and Immobiliser Features

The Alarm and Immobiliser system is normally armed and disarmed by using the Key-Fob. The system can also be armed and disarmed by locking or unlocking the driver's door with the key.

The system features:

  • Perimeter protection for the passenger bay, engine and luggage compartments.
  • Ultrasonic space protection within the passenger compartment.
  • Engine immobilisation.


NOTE: Setting the alarm will also activate the central door locking system.

The Key-Fob

A coded radio signal is transmitted from the Key-Fob when either button is pressed. The code is a rolling code, which means that the code changes every time the alarm is set. As a result of the use of a rolling code the alarm and Key-Fob can become un-syncronised, if the buttons are depressed while the Key-Fob is outside of the vicinity of the vehicle. The Key-Fob RH button is used to arm the anti-theft system the LH button disarms it.



Immobiliser and Alarm Operation


Provided the handset is operated in the proximity of the vehicle, the encoded signal is received by the Alarm ECU. When the alarm is armed, the hazard lights (indicators) give three flashes, the LEDs on the instrument panel, and front door sill will flash quickly for 10 seconds. Once set the LEDs will continue to flash more slowly, as an indication that the Alarm and Immobiliser has been set.
If the hazard lights do not flash, but the door lock buttons move downwards, the probable cause is a door, the bonnet or the tail door ajar, the perimetric alarm will be set and the engine immobilized, however the ultra-sonic space protection will not be enabled. When the partly opened door or the bonnet is closed, the hazard lights will flash and the alarm will become fully armed.
