I got myself a used 2010 A3 Sportback from a AUDI dealer few months ago, but unaware if the anti theft system really works there !
To check the alarm system:
- I locked the car with remote switch keeping the driver side window open, the LED in dash blinked 6-7 times rapidly (also does if window is closed) and started blinking in regular (slower) intervals afterwards. No surprise upto this point.
- After a 30 seconds wait I moved my hand and head through the open window, pulled the engine-cover-opener lever, and opened the boot. Alarm did not set off.
- Opened the properly locked car with key (no remote button) manually and did not turn the ignition on for more than 15 seconds, nothing happened (manual says the alarm should set off if such happens).
The manual also says there should be two buttons in the back of the driver side door to disable lift and ultrasonic motion sensor, but did not find it in my car.
Is the alarm out of order? Is my car not equipped with motion and lift sensors? Or am I missing something here?
Before running to the dealer, I am looking forward to get inputs from you guys.
Cheers... have a great day...
