Syljua It was helpful to know that the button have TWO functions, I thought "off-off" was supposed to read on-off
No, its off-off. The possibility to turn one or both functions (tow and/or IR compartment
sensors), before the next locking. So, its only possible to turn off functions for next lock.
Press the upper, and it will blink for some seconds, to indicate that its active (off),
press the lower, and it will light stead for a second or two, to indicate that its active (off).
(or visa-versa, do not remember exactly).
Once the car is locked, the alarm will be armed after a while (1. min?), and then
the led will light steadily (or blink?, have not looked..)
Bit off topic;
I used to turn these features off when parking outside at my parents house. I though at the time, that it
was the sensitivity of the IR in changing weather that triggered the alarm.
Later, I've come to the conclusion, that it was my faulty ESP yaw sensor, that would have a constant value on its signal, that would, by
the slightest touch go over the threshold value, letting the car thinking it was being rocked from side to side.
Since then, I've replaced the yaw sensor, and have not had a false alarm triggering (though lately, my EPS has been kicking
in when turning right in a downhill acceleration situation, so it might have to be replaced again).
Reading back in 2014;
Reading now in 2017;
I guess, on a stationary car, both the yaw and the lateral acceleration sensor should
read 0.0 ˚/s and 0.0 m/sˆ2 respectively?
