Fiat Ducato Upgrade Alarm

Fiat Ducato 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 facelift 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 blue-tack 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.

    Hi Tom,

    Not sure what sort of response you are after on this one. I’d need to have access to the van and run some tests to diagnose what the problem is. Have you checked the bonnet switch? If the switch is faulty it will trigger the siren, yet not the alarm so would not store a code.
