1.16.3. Signaling device


The signaling device controls:

  – doors, trunk lid, engine cowl, windowpanes;
  – radio receiver;
  – ignition and starter;
  – the power-supply circuit of an anticreeping signal also interferes with start of the engine.

To include: to turn a key in situation A1, to return to situation A2 and to withdraw from the lock.

To switch off: to turn a key in situation B.

The integrated self-checking

After inclusion system during a comment 10 sec. carry out an inspection. About malfunctions the system signals by means of a blinking of a light-emitting diode (LED) of the precautionary alarm switch. To address in the workshop Opel. Self-checking gives the chance to quickly take measures.

Light-emitting diode (LED)

within the first 10 seconds:
  – check, an inclusion delay burns =
  – the door blinks =, a luggage carrier are open or the system is faulty

about 10 seconds later:
  – blinks = the device is switched on
  – switching off function burns about 1 sec. =

Inclusion with control of interior of the car

  – to close a window, a sliding roof, doors, a luggage carrier and a cowl of the engine;
  – to turn on the signaling anti-theft device, LED burns прибл. 10 sec. After that the device is activated. LED continues to blink before switching off of the device.

Inclusion without function of control of interior of the car

In that case when, for example, animals remain in the car:

  – to close a luggage carrier and a cowl of the engine
  – to press the switch near the lighting lamp of salon, LED blinks about 10 sec.,
  – to close doors,
  – incl. in the anticreeping alarm system, LED about 10 sec. then anticreeping lips - in it is activated burn.

Opening and closing of a luggage carrier at the switched-on signaling anti-theft device

To unblock: To turn a key in situation A. The luggage carrier can be opened and closed.

To block: To turn a key in situation B and approximately in 10 sec. control of a luggage carrier will be activated again.

Actions with the lock of a back door / luggage carrier do not lead to inclusion/switching off of the signaling anti-theft device of doors.

Alarm system

The alarm system operates as follows:

  – acoustic (siren, 30 sec.);
  – optical (blinking of a signal, 5 min.).

If there are otkryty windows, or a sliding roof, or in Cabrio cars – an okladny roof, postoronny sounds can cause operation of the mechanism of the alarm system. In order to avoid such cases to turn on the alarm system as it is described above, without control of salon.
The alarm system is switched-off by switching off of the signaling anti-theft device.

The signaling device with the built-in battery controls network of power supply of the car and works in case of attempt of invasion into it (for example, unauthorized shutdown of the accumulator). Operability of a siren thanks to own power supply does not depend on the car accumulator.

In case of shutdown of the accumulator (for example, during service works) the device of the alarm system should be deactivated as follows: to include and then to switch off ignition and not later, than after 15 sec. to disconnect the accumulator.

To switch off a siren: to include ignition, to switch off ignition.
