Sleeping in car – Alarm

Planning on my first trip sleeping in the back of the disco this weekend and a thought just occured to me:

If I lock the doors with the key out of the ignition is the alarm going to go off? Any way to stop that happening?

At work right now, so I can't pop out to check.

A whole lot of truckers do it most nights, not that different.

Pressing the lock button twice in quick succession should lock it but not arm the alarm.

Nice one thankyou.

Also handy for when I need to lock the dog in the car when popping into the shops.

He’s got a D3, one press, 2 for a D4 unless it’s been changed in the CCF with an Iid tool like mine: Very Happy

For clarity, on a D3, 2 rapid depressions of the lock button locks the car, but does not deadlock it ( you can unlock from the inside) It also disables interior motion detectors.

On a 4, its the other way round, 1 depression locks it without deadlocks or interior protection, 2 depressions deadlocks and alarms fully.

It caught me out when I first got my D4. I always wonder how many D4 owners have never deadlocked or alarmed their car!

Yep sorry Bow down I’ve got it the wrong way round. It was changed because of a safety issue.

Slept in the D3 & D4s many times, makes a very nice small single bed with all my it to one side. Great for sleeping in Censored end of nowhere places without the hassle of putting up a tent. Thumbs Up
