Anticreeping system - the general information

Information provided below belongs only to the anticreeping systems, cars of the Citroёn brand entering into a firm complete set.

General information

The standard complete set of some models from a considered row includes anticreeping system. The alarm system joins and switched off automatically when using a remote control (DU) of the uniform lock. At system activation on the dashboard the red control lamp starts to blink continuously. Besides the alarm system the system includes also an engine immobilizator.

In addition on some models the electronic immobilizator with the code control panel built in in the central console is established.

Anticreeping alarm system

It is necessary to notice that when locking and unlocking doors of salon manually automatic inclusion/switching off of anticreeping system does not occur. In default remote control of the uniform lock shutdown of the alarm system can be made by means of a key: open a door a key and enter in car salon (when opening door the alarm system will work), then include ignition, holding the anticreeping system pressed the button, located from the driver's party of the dashboard. This procedure should be done not later than in 10 seconds after opening of a door of the car.

Sensors of the anticreeping alarm system equipped all doors of the car (including a back door) and a car cowl. Besides, the salon is equipped with the ultrasonic watching device which two sensors established from both parties of the car react to any movement in salon. At desire the watching device can be disconnected in an individual order: at the switched-off ignition squeeze out the button of anticreeping system from the driver's party of the dashboard and hold it pressed until the control lamp will light up continuous light. Now, when locking car from the DU panel of the uniform lock the system contour (the control lamp at activation of system comes back to a blinking mode) will join only supervising doors and a cowl. Such possibility of individual shutdown of a contour of tracking allows to leave the car under the alarm system during short parkings with open windows / the top hatch, or with the children/animals left in salon.

Complete deactivation of anticreeping system is made by means of the main switch established in the left corner of an impellent compartment, under a cover of a drive of a screen wiper. The switch is equipped with the lock under a special key and from above is covered with a plastic cover.

At any refusals of anticreeping system the car should be driven away for diagnostics and repair on car repair shop.

Electronic system of an immobilization of the engine with the code control panel

Try not to forget a security code of an immobilizator as it involves need of replacement of ECU of a control system of the engine.

The system allows to disconnect a control system of the engine, preventing possibility of start of the last without input of a special code on the control panel of an immobilizator established on the central console of the car.
The code can get out and change at will of the owner of a vehicle according to the instructions provided in the user's guide.

About shutdown of an immobilizator and possibility of work of start of the engine the green control lamp on the system control panel in the central console signals. If on the panel the red lamp burns, therefore, the control system of the engine is disconnected, and start is not obviously possible: any attempts of its work will be accompanied by operation of the anticreeping alarm system.

For shutdown of an immobilizator it is necessary to gather the corresponding security code on the system control panel. Correctness of the entered code proves to be true a quadruple blinking of the green lamp, being accompanied four short signals of a buzzer. The red lamp on the panel should be disconnected.

At introduction of the wrong code the red lamp remains included, and engine start - impossible.

Battery shutdown

At a battery detachment on the cars equipped with anticreeping system it is necessary to observe some special precautionary measures.

Before disconnecting the battery follows by means of a special key деактивировать a siren of the anticreeping alarm system.

Remember that at battery connection the anticreeping alarm system is activated automatically and should be disconnected from the DU panel of the uniform lock then it is possible to activate a siren a special key.
