1. - KIT CONTENTS.

The following are the main parts supplied in the kit:

- Main alarm unit. 
- Remote controls and/or Driver Card (optional).
- Wireless back-up battery siren or wired siren, loudspeaker.
- Main unit universal wiring harness. 
- Siren wiring harness. 
- Siren bracket.
- Ultrasonic sensors.
- Installation accessories.
- LED / control button.
- Quick reference user manual.
- Pin Code card. 

2. - INTRODUCTION.

The main unit of this system is equipped with an on board CAN interface (Controller Area Network) that allows the data 
reading from the vehicle CAN network. In can also be installed con

fi

 gured as PLIP, with this solution the unit is not connected 

to the CAN network, but to the central door locking motors, to the door locking switches and/or to the direction lights.
It can be armed/disarmed by the vehicle original remote control, with the Cobra one or with the Driver Card (optional).
This manual contains all information required to 

fi

 t the system on 12V battery vehicles with the negative pole connected 

to the vehicle body.

HOW TO ACCESS TO THE VEHICLE SPECIFIC TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS, DATA LINKER TOOL, ANTARES 
SOFTWARE.
 

Access to the web site www.cobra-at.com >

 Installer area 

and register yourself to be allowed to download the technical 

documentation.
Data Linker programming tool and the software “Antares” are required to customize the product for the destination vehicle.
Data Linker is composed by a USB interface module, a 12V DC power supply, a CD containing the software “Antares” and the 
required instructions. Product speci

fi

 c wiring harness are also supplied to connect the USB module to the product main unit.

Antares allows to con

fi

 gure/customize and to program the CAN/PLIP software for the destination vehicle using your computer.

HOW TO DEFINE THE INSTALLATION SOLUTION.

5. - INSTALLATION PROCEDURE.

System’s component positioning.

As much as the components of the system will be placed in secure and dif

fi

 cult to access positions as higher the protection 

level will be.

WARNING

: each element must be positioned so that it does not interfere with moving parts.

Alarm unit. 

It must be 

fi

 tted inside the vehicle far away from heating sources, paying attention to keep the main connector oriented down.

Siren.

It can be installed in the engine bay as inside the vehicle far away from heating sources paying attention to keep the 
main connector oriented down.

Ultrasonic volumetric sensor.

The ultrasonic transducers must be 

fi

 xed to the top of the A pillars pointed towards the rear window or to the top of the 

C pillars pointed towards the windscreen. Their orientation should be as much as possible parallel to the side windows.

Emergency LED/control button 

It must be 

fi

 tted on the dashboard with its LED in a in sight position. The pushbutton should be easily accessible by the 

driver.

Bonnet pushbutton.

The installation of the supplied pushbutton is required if the vehicle is not yet equipped with the original one. The speci

fi

 c 

vehicle CAN/PLIP installation sheet supplies this info.

Antennas.

The RF antennas positioning (for both the main unit and the siren) is crucial for a proper system’s performance. They must 
not be cut, wrapped, connected to any other cables or to the vehicle body and they must be kept separate from the main 
wiring harness and as far as possible from metallic parts.

Electrical connections.

WARNING:

 to prevent damage to the vehicle electrical system during installation, we recommend to 

disconnect the battery negative cable and to reconnect it only after installation is completed. If the battery 
is not disconnected, to avoid the possible generation of errors by the original central units of the vehicle, it 
is necessary to pay attention during the connections and the use of the installation tools.

 

Pay attention when joining two or more wires. Avoid to make “quick connections” that do not ensure a good quality.
Also make sure that the wires of the Cobra 4600 are routed so that they follow the original wiring of the vehicle to which 
they should be joined with the raps.

The addition of fuse is required as speci

fi

 ed in the main connection diagram.

6. - ACTIVE FUNCTIONALITIES.

6.1 - Interior protection with ultrasonic volumetric sensor.

The system protects the vehicle interior with a volumetric ultrasonic sensor. Any attempt to get into the vehicle will be 
detected and the alarm will trigger.

6.2 - Perimetric protection with door open warning diagnostic.

The alarm will trigger by opening any door, boot and bonnet. Should you have left any door opened while arming, the system 
will signal it by 3 

fl

 ashes of the direction lights and 3 audible signals (5 audible signals if the arming/disarming audible 

signals function has been activated).

6.3 - Cable cutting protection 

(only for systems with back-up battery siren).

The alarm will trigger if the system is not power supplied (cutting of cables - battery disconnection) signalling the sabotage. 

6.4 - Engine crank inhibition.

As soon as the system is armed the engine cranking is not possible anymore. 

 
6.5 - Arming the system with the volumetric ultrasonic protection disabled.

This function allows to arm the system leaving temporarily disconnected the interior volumetric protection. The protection 
must be disabled any time you leave somebody or an animal in the vehicle. If you want to leave any window opened also 
disable the protection to avoid false alarms. All other protections remain active. 

To disable the volumetric protection proceed as follow:

switch the engine off being sure that the ignition switch has been turned to the OFF position. Within 5 s press the emergency 
panel pushbutton and keep it pressed until it will 

fl

 ash once to con

fi

 rm only the volumetric protection has been disabled. 

By keeping the pushbutton pressed the system will con

fi

 rm with two 

fl

 ashes that only the additional sensor input has been 

disabled, with three 

fl

 ashes for both of them disabled. The selected protection will remain disabled until the system will be 

disarmed. It will be automatically restored at the next arming.

Note: 

on some vehicles the system automatically disables the volumetric protection if any windows is left opened.

6.6 - Emergency panel LED.

The LED main scope is to show the system arming and disarming conditions. When the system is armed the LED gets 
ON and remains illuminated until the 25 s arming period has elapsed. After that it starts blinking. It goes OFF as soon as 
the system is disarmed.

the programming procedure.

(see ‘PAGE 1’ and ‘PAGE 2’ of the “FUNCTIONS PROGRAMMING TABLES” manual).

9. - FUNCTIONAL TEST.

During the 

fi

 rst 25 s after the system has been armed all protection functionalities can be tested without triggering an alarm.

Make the following tests during the 28 s inhibition time with the system armed:

open

 

then close one by one all doors and boot 

- Check if the system is con

fi

 rming with three audible signal, each door 

opening detection.

Check the proper functionality of the volumetric ultrasonic sensor 

- Make movements from the back seat, their detection 

will be con

fi

 rmed by a LED 

fl

 ashing.

Note

:

 

don’t check the proper functionality of the volumetric ultrasonic sensor with the windows opened as many CAN applications 

are automatically excluding this protection when the windows are left opened.

Open the bonnet then lock the vehicle with the remote control

 y the button of the emergency panel to switch to the next index; each time you press 

the button the index increases and so on. By pressing again when the last index has been selected the system will switch back
