Anti-theft alarm system

Applies to: vehicles anti-theft alarm system

If the anti-theft alarm system detects a vehicle break-in, audio and visual warning signals are triggered. The anti-theft alarm system is switched on or off when locking or unlocking your vehicle. If the alarm is triggered, it will shut off automatically after a certain amount of time.

Switching the alarm off manually

  • To switch the alarm off, press the button on the vehicle key or switch the ignition on.

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the antitheft alarm system may have the following features:

Break-in security feature

The alarm will be triggered if the doors, the hood, or the luggage compartment lid are broken into, or if a door that was previous unlocked using the lock cylinder is opened.

Interior/towing protection monitor

The alarm will be triggered if there are movements detected in the vehicle interior (for example, by animals) or if there is a change in the vehicle angle (for example, when the vehicle is being towed).

You can prevent the alarm from being triggered by deactivating the interior/towing protection monitor.

Deactivating the interior/towing protection monitor

There are the following options for deactivating the interior/towing protection monitor:

  • Press the button on the vehicle key a second time within two seconds. Or
  • Applies to: vehicles with convenience key: Touch the sensor on the door handle a second time within two seconds. Or
  • Turn the vehicle key in the door lock to the close position a second time within two seconds.

    Or

  • Applies to: vehicles with MMI: Select on the home screen: VEHICLE > Settings & Service > Interior monitoring.

If you lock the vehicle, then the interior/towing protection monitor will stay off until the next time the vehicle is unlocked.

WARNING

No one, especially children, should stay in the vehicle when it is locked from the outside, because the windows can no longer be opened from the inside. Locked doors make it more difficult for emergency workers to enter the vehicle, which puts lives at risk.

Tips

The interior/towing protection monitoring only functions correctly when the windows and the roof are closed.
