The generation 3 Sprinter has been in production since 2018. It comes with remote locking and immobiliser as standard but does not come with an alarm.
For those wishing to upgrade the security and add an alarm I recommend the Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS upgrade alarm which works with the factory remote.
I can also configure the alarm to work as a courier alarm with a Cobra remote which I’ll explain at the end of this post.
How the AK4615 Mercedes Sprinter Alarm works
It simply works with the factory remote. Lock the van and it arms. Unlock with either the front or rear unlock buttons and it disarms.
Expect all the usual, a very loud hidden siren and optional horn honk.
Ultrasonic Internal Protection
The ultrasonic sensors get painted black to match the trim colour, they then get mounted on either side of the rearview mirror. This gives good coverage of the whole cabin, especially with motorhome setups where side cabinets can often block the view to the back of the van,
The LED over-ride switch goes nicely on a switch blank as shown below.
Courier Alarm Option
Following on from the Toyota Hiace CAN-BUS courier alarm (which was an Obsessive first) I’ve not got the AK4615 to work as a courier alarm in the Sprinter too.
This happened after the local car audio shop told my customer it was not possible. I suggest that they should remove the signage claiming to be alarm specialist or up their game ?
