This is indicated by sounding of the siren and fl ashing of the direction indicators for approximately thirty seconds.

After it has been triggered, the alarm is again operational.

To avoid triggering the alarm when washing your vehicle, lock it using the key in the drivers door lock.

Do not activate the alarm before disconnecting the battery, otherwise the siren will sound.
