- in the car there have to be children or animals;
- there have to be open windows or the hatch in a roof.

Interruption of process of closing of a lifting and movable cover of the hatch and glasses within the first 10 seconds and its immediate renewal lead to switching off of the security sensor of a list and radio system of protection of salon. If it happens, then for the return turning on of the sensor of a list and radio system of protection of salon it is necessary to switch-off the security alarm system and again to involve it.

Emergency shutdown of the alarm system *

If normal shutdown of the security alarm system on the locked car is impossible, then it is necessary to work as follows:

 PERFORMANCE ORDER
