2016 ST-Line alarm?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone else here has a 2016/17 ST-Line 140.
If you do, does it have any form of alarm and if so, how do you arm it? Parkers guides and also the dealer I purchased it from claim it has an alarm as part of the standard ST-Line spec, yet I'm not sure if mine actually does. 
I've looked in the manual under the alarm section and the guide is a bit vague and the pics they put in don't match my interior (interior courtesy/reading light assembly).

I can answer this one for you as I'm currently in the process of retrofitting the full thatcham alarm to my fiesta

Now there are 2 types of alarms on fiesta, a basic perimeter alarm and a full thatcham approved alarm

Now I can't be sure but from what I've read and gathered every fiesta pretty much comes with at least the basic perimeter alarm, it's easy to test if you have this, simply lock your car with 2 presses of the lock button on your key with the drivers window open, wait 20-30 seconds then pop the bonnet and go to open the bonnet. The alarm should sound, it will be a pissy little horn noise from the rear of the car and indicator lights flashing.

Now the thatcham alarm, this from what I can tell is only ever part of the ST range but I'm not sure which ST's got it as standard and which got it as an extra but the way to tell if you have this is by the front interior courtesy light, it will have the little round sensors on each side of the light which senses movement in the car when the alarm is on, I personally have never heard one go off so can't comment on if it's as pissy as the basic one but at least it has a battery backup and hidden in the bonnet on the drivers side wing

Thanks everyone. I will have a test tomorrow once I've got the scrap Vectra off the drive and my neighbour has gone to work. 
If it has one, it must definitely be the basic one as there are no round sensors next to the courtesy lights (as I had in the Vectra), just 2 little notches next to the lights (which look as though they have a red glow in them) and a small circle in front of them which looks like a speaker.

The red lights will be anbient ones (aka submarine lighting), the speaker grille will be your hands free microphone.
Best way to test the alarm is unlock your car using the key blade, open the door (not remote locking buttons) and wait.
If you have an alarm then it will go off after about 10 seconds.
Deactivate by putting the key in the ignition.
