Peugeot 2008: Unlocking the vehicle / Alarm

(Depending on version)

Peugeot 2008. Alarm

System which protects and provides a deterrent against theft and break-ins.

Exterior perimeter monitoring

The system checks for opening of the vehicle.

The alarm is triggered if anyone tries to open a door, the boot or the bonnet, for example.

Interior volumetric monitoring

The system checks for any variation in volume in the passenger compartment.

The alarm is triggered if anyone breaks a window, enters the passenger compartment or moves inside the vehicle.

Self-protection function

The system checks for the putting out of service of its components.

The alarm is triggered if the battery, the central control or the siren wiring is put out of service or damaged.

Peugeot 2008. Alarm For all work on the alarm system, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

Locking the vehicle with full alarm system


When the monitoring system is active, the red indicator lamp in the button flashes once per second and the direction indicators come on for about 2 seconds.

The exterior perimeter monitoring is activated after 5 seconds and the interior volumetric monitoring after 45 seconds.

Peugeot 2008. Alarm The alarm does not activate when locking automatically from a distance.

Peugeot 2008. Alarm If an opening (door, boot or bonnet) is not properly closed, the vehicle is not locked, but the exterior perimeter monitoring will be activated after 45 seconds, at the same time as the interior volumetric monitoring.


The monitoring system is deactivated: the indicator lamp in the button goes off and the sidelamps and/or the daytime running lamps flash for about 2 seconds.

Peugeot 2008. Alarm After unlocking using the remote control

If the vehicle automatically locks itself again (as happens if a door or the boot is not opened within 30 seconds of unlocking), the monitoring system is automatically activated.

Locking the vehicle with exterior perimeter monitoring only

Deactivate the interior volumetric monitoring to avoid the unwanted triggering of the  alarm,   in certain cases such as:

Deactivating interior volumetric monitoring

Only exterior perimeter monitoring is activated; the red indicator lamp in the button flashes every second.

To take effect, this deactivation must be performed whenever the ignition is switched off.

Reactivating interior volumetric monitoring

Triggering of the alarm

This is indicated by sounding of the siren and flashing of the direction indicators for 30 seconds.

Depending on the country of sale, certain monitoring functions remain active until the alarm has been triggered eleven times consecutively.

When the vehicle is unlocked using the remote control or the Keyless Entry and Starting system, rapid flashing of the red indicator lamp in the button informs you that the alarm was triggered during your absence.

When the ignition is switched on, this flashing stops.

Failure of the remote control

To deactivate the monitoring functions:
