The 2000 Opel Zafira is equipped with an alarm system that activates light and sound alarms when it is triggered. The Zafira has sensors on the car that determine when unauthorised access is being attempted. The alarm will continue to sound until it is turned off and reset. The alarm can be turned off when steps are taken to indicate that the rightful owner of the Zafira is accessing the vehicle.

Insert the key into the ignition.

Turn the ignition switch to "ON" without starting the engine.

Press and hold the valet button for about seven seconds until a confirmation chirp sounds. The valet button is located beneath the steering wheel.

Turn the ignition switch off. The alarm is reset and turns off.
