Interior Monitoring

The new generation of the anti-theft alarm system has a signal horn independent of the vehicle’s power supply and a time-controlled alarm that sounds in response to unauthorised opening of the door. The anti-theft alarm, including ultrasonic interior monitor, protects the doors, boot, engine compartment and vehicle interior against unauthorised access. The ultrasonic system also detects anyone trying to get into the car through a broken window. The interior monitoring system can be disabled, such as when leaving a pet in the car for a short time. Locking the car primes the alarm, unlocking the car turns it off. Some Volkswagen models include tilt sensors as part of the anti-theft alarm system. If these detect any change in the car’s position (caused by an attempt to tow it away) the alarm will sound. The anti-theft alarm initially sounds the horn for 30 seconds, accompanied by continuous flashing of the hazard warning lights.
