Factory Alarm
#1
So I think like most Multispaces mine doesn't have the factory alarm option.

Citroen sell the aftermarket alarm system, but it looks messy ie the ultra sonic sensors look obviously like an after thought. And it's expensive.

Thing is it appears that all the Berlingo's have the wiring in place for the factory alarm, at least in the cabin. The connector in the fuse box is there for the control module, and the wiring for the interior protection switch is there on the back of the switch blank.

The harness for the centre console is easily available as is the centre console, however I can't find the wiring under the bonnet for the sounder or the bonnet switch. It should be there as it seems there isn't a different wiring harness listed in the parts catalogue for cars with an alarm does anyone know where the sounder is hidden? I assume it's up in the wheel arch or something?

If I can find the wiring under the bonnet it should just be a case of plugging in all the bits and telling the BSI that it's there.

Hi, your right in thinking alarm system.
But you could just double lock when you use the key fob. I never did, untill l had the front small quarter light window broken by thieves, they reached in and released the door handle, opening the central locking tailgate. That cost me about £700 in window repairs and stollen camping gear. If only i had double locked, it would have only cost me a window. (the same as it would if i had an alarm)

When you press the remote fob , press it a second time within a second or two, you should hear a second 'clunk' this is the deadlocking operating.

Thanks, my '95 Sierra was the same IIRC. Just tried it on my '08 M59 but no luck...

I need an alarm for my camera insurance, otherwise I probably wouldn't bother with one.

Looking at a how to for a Peugeot 307, it seems the wiring for the alarm sounder is likely to be in one of the front wheel arches, which is where the sounder gets hidden.

Still need to find where they hide the cable for the bonnet switch though. It seems when you add the bonnet switch you also get 'bonnet open' on the dash display like you do for doors.

I've just ordered most of the bits I need from ebay, still need to get a bonnet switch, but I may just buy a new one.
I've no idea why Citroen sell those after market kits, when the factory alarm appears to be easier to install!
