Thanks for the answers. This works.
I actually never looked up car manual for that. I went through manual when I bought my car, but I must have missed the alarm stuff. Now I read the centra locking and alarm stuff throughly. Some things are not that clear there, but in general I learnt a lot.
Anyway - Looks like there were cars equipped with alarm with ultrasonic sensor or cars without this sensor. This is the yoke responsible for detecting any movement inside the car I assume. My car has it.
So when you lock the door with key fob remote or door lock, alarm activates together with ultrasonic sensor. You can only disable alarm with remote. It's impossible to disable it with key in door lock, even though you can activate it like that.
Looks like solution shown by tomtank62 still activates the alarm, but doesn't activate ultrasonic sensor.
So in other words - you can keep someone or something in the car (f.e. a dog), and alarm won't turn on the siren.
But if you open the doors without deactivating alarm with remote key fob, alarm will start buzzing.
Only way to lock the car without activating alarm completely, seems to be doing it from the inside with lock tab or master door lock switch.
But you can not do it being outside that car.
So it looks like, it is possible to lock the car without activating ultrasonic sensor, but alarm on doors will still be on.
So I still have 2 questions:
1. Is there any way to lock it from outside without activating alarm at all?
2. How does the alarm work. It's not really mentioned anywhere in the manual. Does ultrasonic sensor only detect movement inside the car, or something else as well? Does the alarm (beside ultrasonic sensor) only work on doors - meaning it only starts the siren when doors are opened, or it might activate on any other event? Like vibrations, sudden movements, etc, ?
