    I have mailed the dealershp today with a list of issues which will mean taking the van up the road and possibly overnight.

    Going to have to go back to the dealer anyway with other problems so I will get them to provide some more info.

    I have a little round alarm control button on my Berlingo, like yours with little black button and LED.
    To disable the alarm I have to input the four digit code. input first number of presses, wait for confirmation flash, input second digit wait and so on for the four digits.

    If this sounds the same as yours, the way to disable the internal ultrasonic detectors is to press the alarm control button within 3 seconds of removing the key from the ignition.

    If you try it turn key till all dash lights come on, wait till the van system checks and most of lights go out, remove key, hold alarm control button until you get conformation flash, exit van by drivers door , then lock van. Alarm takes about a minute to arm.

    If this does not work, try running the engine before turning off, removing key and pressing button.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks argoose

    Tried your very helpful suggestions and no joy unfortunately. We are suspecting that the system is in error mode so we have asked the dealership to look at it as well as a number of other oddities. Radio retunes after two minutes, gas grill goes out after a minute and will only relight after the oven has been lit and put out then the cycle goes on... and the toast stays cold and so on and so on.

    I returned from the dealership yesterday and had a chat with the auto electrician there. So...

    To leave pets in the vehicle the van is parked, the key removed from the iginition and within 5 seconds the button on the dash is pressed. I don't know about the fob ones as I don't have that type. Exit as usual and lock the central locking.

    This procedure disables the motion sensors in the habitat and leaves the rest of the system live as normal.

    I hope this saves someone else the grief that we had. What is annoying is that the hand over didn't cover this and talking to other owners at the dealership all three of us had issues with the handovers we had been given.

    Thatís exactly how my Cobra alarm works, detailed in the manual I have. Did you not get a manual ?

    Manual? No.

    The electrician gave us a one page crib sheet which hopefully will cover the rest of what we need to know.

    Also discovered that the radio and sat nav are very poor, as in Burstner installed them for a short while then realised they were not up to their standards so we are arranging to get the whole thing changed out for a decent unit. Awaiting brochures at the moment so will update when that gets done in May.
