    I can’t find the relevant thread, and the handbook always confuses... the door pillar button can be red or orange. Which colour for the sensor is off? Crazy to use red and orange.... green for on like most power points would make sense

    Thanks

    Orange for off ..... and can only be activated from the drivers door with all other doors closed.

    does not work if you try to press it off or on from inside the van.

    Actually the red is just the switch illumination and the orange is the activation of the function like the others on the dash like start/stop button etc.

    I think the stop/start button starts the stopping of the stop/start, so I’m not sure who I agree with now.

    On the original question it does make complete sense on the interior alarm sensor now, so thanks both - one of those things I didn’t know either & continually forget that I need to look in the manual for. Red is illuminated & Orange Is On (or Off, depending on how you look at it ... :thumb).

    DymoTape at the ready.

    I have found the easiest way of testing whether or not it\s on or off is to throw my two small grandchildren in the van whilst they are having a fight. :shocked

    This is how i deactivate internal sensor for ferry crossing.
    1 - Ignition on (dashboard lights lit)
    2 - All doors closed apart from drivers
    3 - Switch ignition off
    4 - Activate switch to show orange
    5 - Remove ignition key
    6 - Close drivers door and lock
    7 - This is the way i was shown when picked up van 11 years ago

    I was sure from the title that we had another thread discussing toilet habits. Slightly disappointed (not).

    I'm sure I read somewhere you could just lock the van with the key and that would deactivate the motion sensors

    I take ignition key out then press button (light changes colour) & close door and then press remote to lock doors.
    OK doing that way, and no alarm activation on ferry, 4 return crossings.

    Not mine, either. Strangely (or not) VW cars deactivate the motion sensing with a double click on the remote,

    Strange they have disabled that on the T6. Do you have the capability of closing front windows via the remote - Press and Hold Lock or Opening windows when unlocking?
