Fiat Ducato Upgrade Alarm

Fiat Blog Posts

The current Fiat Ducato is now in its 3rd generation and was released in 2006. It’s also re-branded and sold as a Peugeot Boxer and a Citroen¬†Jumper.

All models come with keyless entry and a transponder immobiliser as standard but lack an alarm.

The Ducato received a face lift in 2014 which was mainly cosmetic. I highly recommend the Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm for both the pre and post face-lift models as it works flawlessly.

I have also added a Cobra remote to one in the past which is a good option if you only have one remote key.

Bonnet Switch

It’s one of those vehicles where there is no obvious spot to fit a bonnet switch. When this happens I like to get the old bluetack out to see where the bonnet compresses down.

For the Ducato I ended up using a custom bracket which mounts on a factory bolt and used a waterproof switch. The result is tidy and will not rust like the shitty ones most alarms come with. As always I take notes and photos so the next one is easier.

All you’ll see after the install are the Ultrasonic sensors and LED over-ride switch.

Here are some more photos of what you’ll see after the install:

Fiat Ducato Camper Van

The camper van version of the Ducato can have reed switches fitted to protect the external hatch doors and a PIR sensor for the back when required.
