To lock the car with keycard and not have the alarm activated ?.

Having to leave the dog in the car tomorrow for about an hour at the most, windows slightly open and parked in shade with water on the floor.

it is, there should be a alarm user guide in with the user guide, i think it is something like, engine off - drivers door open, insert and remove card 5 times then close door and lock - it should then beep

dont quote me on it as i dont 100% remember if that is right, if you do get stuck i will go and get my manual at lunch time

Keycard in and out 6 times, when you lock the car it will beep 3/4 times, this indicates that the alarm sensors are deactivated.

Sorry but I am more worried about your dog being left in the car for an hour:redcard:

Some time back I had to smash a car window to get a heat suffering dog out that had been left in a car and that was a relevant coolish day, it wasnt a very pleasant sight, so please be aware of the consequences and act accordingly, please:nonono:

Simple way of deactivating alarm:

- Once engine / ignition is off, remove card and open driver's door.

- Press the start button 5 times (or just once if you have Keyless entry / start).

- Close the door and lock the car.

- To leave windows open, only press the lock button once. Pressing twice will auto-close any windows / sunroof.

- The next time you lock the car, the alarm will automatically reactivate and the car will beep 3 or 4 times (can't remember which).


Another tip if you didn't know; if the alarms been going off while you've been away from the car, the car will beep a number of times rather than just once when you unlock it.
The alarm user guide tells you what the different beep sequences mean (i.e. which sensors triggered the alarm).

Hope this helps anyone interested.

Andy :)

Dog in parked vehicle - Considerations

As long as you take proper precautions, this shouldn't be an issue.
The most common mistake made in this regards, is to completely shut the windows, thus not providing possibilities for the heat to escape.
On a couple of occasions, I actually had to lend tools to the police so they could lawfully break into car in order to cool down a suffering poochie.
Animal welfare law where I lived at the time (Norway) allows them to do so.

Thread starter seems to be aware of the pitfalls, and seems to have thought of further precautions as well:
Having to leave the dog in the car tomorrow for about an hour at the most, windows slightly open and parked in shade with water on the floor.
With these precautions, heat will be able to escape from the car, the dog has water, to prevent dehydration,
and the car should have shade enough to not get hot in the first place, with a little prediction of where the sun will shine for the next hour.

In addition, I'd recommend getting a couple of adjustable ventilation lattices, that can be tucked in the rear window frames.
Just open the windows, adjust them to the width of the window, and raise the window glass to securely jamb them into place.
This will allow even more heat to escape (and when there's a slight breeze, even more cool air to be drawn in).

My solution, although not helpful to thread starter is to get a bigger dog..... That way windows can be left open and doors unlocked.

Water would only be needed if in an unpopulated area. Silly people sticking their hands in to pet a seemingly docile dog would provide enough fluids at a pinch........

Sorry, the doctor hasn't been round yet with my meds, I think she fancies the Warden !

Can be achieved using roids, although I wouldn't recommend it, due to side effects.

Had a labrador once. Had to get an alarm for the house, and set up a zone in the middle of the house where he could walk free,
as he'd likely wag his tail to welcome burglars if they entered.

:rofl::rofl: ha ha nice idea!! My dog seems vicious enough when he's in the car and people approach it. He's got a good bark but he spends most of the time in the car drooling or sleeping... lol :d

My Akita used to drool down peoples shoulders when anyone sat in the back if he was in the boot.

Funny thing is he didn't dribble in the car if noone was sat in the back seats... :d:d:d

For the few times I have left my dog in the car I just close front doors, reach through from back (or get my son to do it) and press the lock button, get out of back door and close it.

Sorted, no in, out, hokey cokey with the key, car locked and safe.

I don't want to come across as an expert or anything, or open a big debate on this topic, however, I feel it is worth pointing out that the biggest danger to dogs is heat exhaustion. Even on relatively cool sunny days the temp inside a car can be dangerously high. Water will become useless as it will very quickly reach the same temperature as the air temp inside the car. You're dog would need the water for cooling down, not rehydration. Windows open would be the best solution, although (and I say this as someone who has on occasion done this very thing) not leaving them in the first place is the only safe bet. Not always possible though, is it? :(

Peace.
