Who are you guys?

Nissan qashqai alarm system



Tried searching but could not find anything on this, my question is when i get out my car when it comes i plan on pushin the i button to lock the car, (im not a walk away kind of guy incase it doesnt lock lol) does this engage the alarm? or is the alarm engaged when the i key is out of range?

if it doesnt engage the alarm either way i said, then is there a double push method of the handle button that engages alarm?

its probably simple but its bugging me now and i cant just wait 12 days 10 hours and find out lol

You push the small black rubber button on the door handle and if the key fob is in range the doors open or lock, i'm not sure if you think it locks all on it's own when you walk away, i don't know if the new model does this but the old model does not. You can pull on the handle to check if it locked ok before you walk away.

ok thanks guys, i thought all these systems locked by walking away, every other one ive seen did, my dads had 3 of them on different cars, and the one i seen on a bmw done this, it also auto opened when you walked in range.

i knew the qq didn't auto open but thought it auto locked lol silly me.

i never trusted auto locking systems anyway as you cant really know if its locked as jeremy clarkson said, its open when you leave and open when you return lol

interestingly, the Megane has the auto-locking thing as you leave the car, and I would have thought there would have been more commonality of this kind of stuff between Nissan and Renault.

Personally, I like the QQ in the way you press the button to lock/unlock and dislike the autolocking on the megane as 1) I like to be sure it is locked myself and 2) it (megane) is very noisy with the chirping when it locks and unlocks

Auto-fold mirrors on lock is the answer, but let's not go there again

Chirping - yes, know what you mean. Fella cross the road from had a Megane MPV, used to drive me nuts - and just how many flashes did it need, it was like a strobe!

I've never been quite sure whatever the alarm system is on my Tekna.

I've never heard the alarm go off, what does it sound like?

Does it have movement sensors on the inside or is it only activated if someone breaks in or something? I frequently leave my dog in the boot and it's never gone off. This thread has just made me realise that I know absolutely nothing about the alarm system on my own car

my cars the same as the QQ then, its possible the motion sensors are not picking up your dog as it could be shielded by the seat,

i take it there is a button to turn the motion sensors off? for leaving dogs in the car ect. my vectra you can turn the motionsensors off and alarm goes off if someone pulls the handle or breaks a window sort of thing
