Citroen C3: Access / Alarm

(Depending on the country of sale.)

System which protects and provides a deterrent against theft and break-ins. It provides the following type of monitoring:

Perimeter monitoring

The system checks the opening of the vehicle. The alarm is triggered if anyone tries to open a door, the boot, the bonnet, etc.

Self-protection function

The system checks for the disconnection of any of its components.

The alarm is triggered if the battery, central control unit or the siren wiring is put out of service or damaged.

Citroen C3. Alarm For all work on the alarm system, contact a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.

Locking the vehicle with alarm system

Activation

  • Switch off the ignition and get out of the vehicle.
  • Lock the vehicle using the remote control or the Keyless Entry and Starting system. The monitoring system is active. The locking button’s indicator lamp, located on the dashboard, flashes once per second and the direction indicators come on for about 2 seconds.

Citroen C3. Alarm Following an instruction to lock the vehicle, the exterior perimeter monitoring is activated after a delay of 5 seconds. If an opening (door, boot, etc.) is not fully closed, the vehicle is not locked but the exterior perimeter monitoring will be activated after a delay of 45 seconds.

Deactivation

  • Unlock the vehicle with the Keyless Entry and Starting system.

The monitoring system is deactivated: the indicator lamp in the button goes off and the direction indicators flash for about 2 seconds.

Citroen C3. Alarm When the vehicle automatically locks itself again (as happens if a door or boot is not opened within 30 seconds of unlocking), the monitoring system is also reactivated.

Triggering of the alarm

This is indicated by sounding of the siren and flashing of the direction indicators for 30 seconds.

The monitoring functions remain active until the alarm has been triggered eleven times consecutively.

When the vehicle is unlocked using the remote control or the Keyless Entry and Starting system, rapid flashing of the locking button indicator lamp informs you that the alarm was triggered during your absence. When the ignition is switched on, this flashing stops immediately.

Failure of the remote control

To deactivate the monitoring functions:

  • unlock the vehicle using the key (integral to the remote control) in the driver's door lock,
  • open the door; the alarm is triggered,
  • switch on the ignition; the alarm stops; the button’s indicator lamp goes off.

Locking the vehicle without activating the alarm

  • Lock or deadlock the vehicle using the key (integral to the remote control) in the driver's door lock.

Malfunction

When the ignition is switched on, and for 10 seconds afterwards, the flashing locking button indicates a system fault.
