"Should" being the operative word. As an electronic engineer, I can assure you that the most probable time for a device to fail is at turn on when it experiences high inrush currents. Sure, there may be no problems for 3 years, which at the end of the day is all Renault are really interested in.

I too have the manual. The other point to mention is that there is a short confirmatory tone emitted by the alarm to confirm the detectors have been disabled. If you're next to a busy road - forget it. Unless you stick your head up the rear passenger wheel arch. No thanks!
