Security alarm system *

The security alarm system reacts to the following actions of strangers:

- the movement in salon of the car (the microwave sensor of protection of salon)
- change of a list of the car, for example, in attempt of theft of a wheel or towage
- interruption of power supply from the accumulator

The system reacts to the called actions of strangers differently depending on execution of the car:

- within 30 seconds the alarm signal sounds
- for 5 minutes the light alarm system * turns on

Statement on the alarm system and removal from the alarm system

Statement on the alarm system and removal from the alarm system are made along with locking and unlocking of the car by turn of a key in the lock or by means of remote radio control.

The microwave sensor of protection of salon becomes more active approximately in 30 seconds after the last turn of a key in the door lock.

If statement on the alarm system is executed properly, single operation of the light alarm system testifies to it.

The luggage carrier can be opened and after statement on the security alarm system if to press the button 3 of remote radio control (address to the Section Keys, the uniform lock and anticreeping system). After closing of a trunk lid it is again taken under control of the security alarm system.

At some export models the control of the security alarm system can be made only by means of remote radio control. Unlocking of the car a key causes operation of the alarm system in these models. ("To Unlock") pressing of the button 1 or start of the engine switch off the alarm system.

Signals of a control lamp


The control lamp is under a rear-view mirror.

Constantly the control lamp burns: the security alarm system is made active.

The control lamp blinks at statement on the alarm system: doors, a cowl or a trunk lid are leaky closed. Even if to leave everything as it is, other correctly closed objects will be taken under protection, and the lamp later will start burning 10 seconds constantly. However the microwave sensor of protection of salon is not made active.

The control lamp dies away at removal from the alarm system: the unlawful manipulations with the car it was not made.

The control lamp blinks approximately within 10 seconds at removal from the alarm system: signal of the fact of foreign intervention.
