According to the Owner's Manual there should be a switch on the lower part of the post between the driver and rear passenger door but I don't have a switch where indicated. Does anyone now how the deactivate the motion sensors and tilt switches? I'm due to travel on a ferry and will leave the dog in the car during the journey!

I'm at work until 11.15pm so can't tell you exactly until I'm back at the car - hopefully someone will pip me to it - it's in the online manual.

Thanks Browser, I'll take a look this evening. Have you got access to an online menu?

There is an App known as MySkoda. On it, you can download the manuals. It's pretty handy.

Hello,
Checked out that route and can't see an option to disable the feature!

I believe double pressing the locking button on the key disables the interior alarm. We have left the dog in doing this and the alarm doesn't go off. It works this way on our other car which is a Seat Leon and I would image is the same electronics. I'm sure the Seat manual says this but the Kodiaq manual doesn't seem to unless I've missed it.

I'm not sure about your suggestion; I have just been locking as usual, with and without the remote fob and leaving the dog inside and it hasn't gone off but not so sure this will be OK when we are on the ferry!

So as I could not find the correct answer from forum members I contacted Skoda Customer Service..... well unless you ordered and paid extra for an alarm system Skodas dont have one. Cant believe it , a car in excess of 40K and no alarm!

Dear Mr. xxxx,
I do apologise that this was not mentioned or offered to you at the time of purchase.
Unfortunately a retro-fit of the alarm system with interior monitoring is not possible.
This car is fitted with an immobiliser and steering lock, additionally as part of the SKODA Connect system the car uploads its location to the portal each time the engine is switched off in the unlikely event that it was stolen.
Apologies I am unable to offer a more favourable answer today.
Kind Regards,
Ciara Griffin, ŠKODA Customer Care

Either Irish Ks are so lowly specced they don't have alarms, which I don't believe, or Ciara hasn't a clue what she is talking about. (Is this an Irish Customer care centre?) I assume you are in Northern Ireland so your car specs should be standard U.K.spec. Therefore you WILL have an alarm
If so try the U.K. one 0333 003 7504
As far as I am aware every Skoda has an alarm and I though they all had interior disablement. Have another look low down on the B pillar drivers side.
BTW would you please put your car details on your signature. It would then help members to help you. Without knowing what model/engine/trans etc, etc it is very difficult.*
If you really do NOT have that button. you can try locking the car normally using the plipper (I assume you have keyless entry?*) then, within 5 seconds 'plip' again. that will disable the interior sensor.
Even the S has an alarm. Scroll down to the big red bit! (My enlarging and colour)

Well Colin, think you have hit the nail on the head - In the R.O.I. the spec reads under security it reads 'immobiliser.
http://az749841.vo.msecnd.net/sitesenie/alv1/3b6156f1-62eb-4b2c-b97d-eca4e7b575d7/KODIAQ-Prices.78bf2b7e9699ad909aeaee324e3601ae.pdf

I got really confused because I looked at the Kodiaq in Hampshire and test drove one Northern Ireland and purchased one in the R.O.I. because we have a second home there! The specs are different but I never imagined that they would not include an alarm. The immobiliser and Skoda Connect are good security features but never di I imagine NO ALARM !
