Alcoguard is an integrated, user-friendly and reliable alcohol lock based on advanced fuel cell technology.
The unique Alcoguard is integrated in the car's electronics. The alcohol meter is connected to the car by cable and is heated ready for use in 10 seconds1. To shorten the waiting time, heating starts when the central locking is activated. When the driver blows into the alcohol meter the result is shown the car's driver display.
When the driver exhales, Alcoguard will give a green light if the reading is below 0.1 permille / 0.01 BAC. If the result is above 0.1 permille / 0.01 BAC but below the set permille limit (programmed at installation according to specific market requirements), Alcoguard will display a yellow light. The car can be driven but the driver is recommended to wait for the green light. Alcoguard shows a red light and the car cannot be started if the result is above the programmed permille limit.
Once the engine has been stopped, it can be restarted within 30 minutes without providing a new breath sample.
The handset unit can be bypassed to operate the vehicle in emergency situations, or if the handset is missing. During installation you select whether it should be possible to bypass the alcohol lock either once "single bypass" or an unlimited number of times "multiple bypass".
The cradle for the Alcohol lock handset is installed in the car's tunnel console, alternatively in the storage compartment behind the centre console.
