very intermittently, like every couple of months or so, my alarm would sound, i'd reset it, and a few minutes later it would go off again, so on and so forth. then it would stop. now today, after a night shift i hasten to add, the alarm has been going off all day, i'd reset it, it would be ok for half an hour then go off again, to the point where, ive had to leave the doors unlocked, which isnt adviseable in my area i also hasten to add.
i have retro fitted gid and the check control said 'check safeguard' which makes sense since the rear heated screen elements are broken, but now today with the alarm on all the time, the screen no longer says check safeguard???
now through the search function i have found out that broken elements on the rear windscreen can cause this problem (mine has 2, like that for 1 year) but would this not cause it to be registering faults all the time ie not intermittently. i have also read that the is part of the loom under the rear quarter glass' which may require some attention, i cannot find the connections to check.
i also read that removing 'fuse 23' from the boot, will stop the alarm going off, but in the same thread it said, if that fuse has blown it'll set the alarm off. so i'm stuck in massive rut, because i'm back at work tonight, and can i hell leave the car unlocked outside a psychiatric hospital in the middle of bagdad. is there a way of muting the alarm by way of fuse removal or even temporarily deactivating the alarm. my car is a 2.0 dti estate.
your speedy response is very, very, very much appreciated,
kindest regards michael
