I'm just doing my insurance renewal-and my van is fitted with the standard VW alarm built in 2011

Does anyone know if it's conforms to any Thatcham category?

Hi

Just a little more info on your T5.1 and I can narrow down what should be fitted can you tell me what year it is and what model.

I can tell you that Panel vans/Kombis are as follows

Startline : Thatcham cat2 immobiliser

Trendline : Thatcham cat2 immobiliser

Highline : Thatcham cat1 approved alarm and immobiliser with tow away, perimeter and interior cab protection.

However I believe the Highline alarm was an option on both the Startline and Trendline from factory order.

if you have a Caravelle or a California I have the info on these somewhere I would say they probably have the Highline type of Alarm/immobiliser.

Hope this helps you for now.

Cheers Whistler

It's pre those model specs, it's a 140 panel van.

I just asked the previous owner and it's what came standard for a van delivered in Jan 2011. Nothing extra was spec'd on it, it's whatever they provided.

AFAIK they don't provide an alarm as standard on panel vans. If yours has one it must either be a factory option or aftermarket.

I asked the previous owner and it's what VW fitted at the factory.

I'm thinking that a VCDS scan may show some specs or the name of the system at least.

Also he said he didn't specifically choose an alarm option, hence why I'm asking.

It's for my insurance quote, I don't fancy getting into the position of having a claim refused on accounts my alarm isn't what I said it was.

If it was fitted at the factory (as an option) then it should be shown in the vehicle's PRcodes.
Perfect! I'll look online for a PR decoder I recall finding one before. I didn't think of that so cheers for the heads up

Hi

I just had a look on Thatcham,s website as i can not see the info in the 2011 VW brochure, it states that your model year will have a cat2 immobiliser fitted as standard. Which is what the insurance company should know.

From a thread i looked at on this forum are you sure your model year has an alarm, have you heard the siren/horn sound as it appears that some others have raised this issue before on here, do a search to find the thread.

hope this helps you.

Cheers

Thanks for the info

I do recall managing to set it off once but I'll try again to do it tomorrow and check the PR codes. Certainly my mind has been put at rest so thanks for all the input

If it has colour coded bumpers, 2JG, then it must have been Trendline or similar option?

I think then it was called appearance pack, an option when ordering.
Point is the original owner told you it came as standard - now it has an option pack.

Perhaps if you go back to the original or I presume any other main dealer and they will tell you how it was supplied,

If you look on the drivers side b pillar inside behind the seat belt , do you have a switch there which enables you to deactivate the interior alarm, it may or may not be fitted to that year but if you do have it then it would tell you if you have a Cat1 factory fit option alarm.

Cheers

I dont have that so its not a Cat1 with interior protection, I presume its the basic Cat2 install.
