Mazda 2: Theft-Deterrent System

If the theft deterrent system detects an inappropriate entry into the vehicle or the intrusion sensor detects movement in the vehicle which could result in the vehicle (with the intrusion sensor) or its contents being stolen, the alarm alerts the surrounding area of an abnormality by sounding the siren/horn and fl ashing the hazard warning lights.

The system will not function unless it's properly armed. So when you leave the vehicle, follow the arming procedure correctly.

Intrusion sensor *

The intrusion sensor uses ultrasonic waves to detect movement inside the vehicle and to raise an alert of an intrusion into the vehicle.

The intrusion sensor detects certain kinds of movement inside the vehicle, however, it may also respond to phenomenon outside the vehicle such as vibrations, loud noise, wind, and air currents.

CAUTION

In order for the intrusion sensor to operate appropriately, be aware of the following:

Operation

Siren triggering conditions

The siren/horn sounds intermittently and the hazard warning lights fl ash for about 30 seconds when the system is triggered by any one of the following:

The system will be triggered again (up to 10 times) if one of the above conditions remains.

Disconnecting the battery terminal (the hazard warning lights do not fl ash).

The system will be triggered about 10 times.

NOTE

How to Arm the System

  1. Close the windows securely.

NOTE

(With the intrusion sensor) Even with a window open, the system can be armed, however, leaving the windows even partially open can invite theft, and wind blowing into the vehicle could trigger the alarm.

The intrusion sensor function can also be cancelled.

  1. Switch the ignition OFF.
  2. Make sure the bonnet, the doors, and the liftgate/boot lid are closed.

  1. After 20 seconds, the system is fully armed.

NOTE

The theft deterrent system can also be armed by activating the auto relock function with all the doors, the liftgate/boot lid and the bonnet closed.

 The system will disarm if one of the following operations takes place within 20 seconds after pressing the lock button:

Pressing the electric liftgate/boot lid opener while the key is being carried.

To rearm the system, do the arming procedure again.

When the doors are locked by pressing the lock button on the transmitter or using the auxiliary key while the theft-deterrent system is armed, the hazard warning lights will fl ash once to indicate that the system is armed.
