How to disable alarm sensor with dog in car

I parked my car with my dog in the back and locked the doors ... went inside to the store I was at and came out with the alarm going off.

Is there some way to disable the interior sensors or whatever sets it off? On my old 2000 Audi S4 there was a button down on the b-pillar you could push to disable the alarm.

I don't like to leave the car unlocked when I take my dog with me...

Try locking the car then press the lock button again, this should disable the alarm but leave the car locked

And I believe the above only disables the interior motion sensors, so the rest of the alarm system remains active.

Correct. Press "lock" twice when locking the vehicle and the motion sensor is disabled but the rest of the system is armed.

the other option is to teach your dog to sit extremely still.

+1

Also disables the tilt sensor.

A must if the car ever needs to be locked while being towed, trucked, railed or on a ferry.

Oh, sorry, but dogs left in the car freaks me out a bit. Please be careful . . .

Sorry.
