Hi all

I would like to be able to temporarily turn off the alarm when we go shopping and we have the dog in the car. With the blacked out windows people can't see the dog and it causes a fair amount of amusement/irritation when the alarm goes off.
I did read something about pressing the button on the remote 3 times, but it does not seem to work.
Am I the only one with this problem??

Thanks.

Your not alone. I have the same problem. My Grand Cherokee would disable the internal sensors with 3 presses of the fob but my 300c won't. I'm forced to leave it unlocked. The last thing I want is for some thieving scroat to open it up and let loose, or worse still, steal my 3 GSD's. Hopefully, someone on here can advise how to disable the internal sensors.

According to the Manual, the alarm will not be set if the doors are locked using the door plungers. Maybe the Manual is also wrong on that one?

If you do try the remote method, the key must be pressed within 15 secs of arming the system and while the alarm indicator light is flashing rapidly.

However, I haven't tested either of these methods.

You could just unplug the interior alarm sensor above the mirror. Alarm still functions.

Absolutely no problem with mine (unless of course I forget to do it).
Lock car normally on the plip then press the lock button three more times. Watch the indicator flashes to make sure each press is registered. Dogs can then have a party in there without annoying the neighbours... ::laugh::

Thanks for all your comments...

Well, had a quick try today.

Put dog in car and pressed the remote once to lock the car and then a further 4 times (making sure the indicators flashed each time). Seemed to work, but not sure since I tried it with the car in our drive and the dog may not have moved about that much.

Will try again when we go out and report back. So, watch this space...

Following devilmaycare's suggestion, I have tried and it seems to be working.

So, again... Lock the car as usual with the remote and then press the same button a further 4-5 times, making sure the indicators flash each time. The internal alarm should be now be disabled.

Thanks to everyone!

Just to clarify, I haven't read page 2,
Its lock the car and 5 presses of the lock button on the fob, within 15 seconds.

Seems odd that you need so many presses. I follow the instructions on p16 of my hand book, which states...

"The ultrasonic Intrusion sensor (motion detector) actively monitors your vehicle every time you arm the security system. If you prefer, you can turn OFF the ultrasonic intrusion sensor when arming the security system. To do so, press the LOCK button on the RKE transmitter three times within 15 seconds of arming the system (while the Vehicle Alarm Indicator Light is flashing rapidly)"

.. after locking and arming the security system with one key press, I do three more and it works every time.

The drivers handbook states.....

Lock with the fob and press 3 (three) more times within 15 seconds.
Works EVERY time for me.

I often have to look this up in the book to refresh my memory as i rarely leave the dogs in the car.
