    Default How To: Fit a "Hanoi-Style" Burglary, Car Alarm

    Got bored today, but it works wonders


    1st you'll need one of these alarms or similar, Some wire and a switch.

    Front Cig Lighter is where i have taken the Ignition live from, and earthed the Alarm Speaker.



    The alarm itself will fit nicely behind here as there's plenty of space behind the dash, under the vent and next to the glove box.



    Alarm is only about the size of a gear knob but is ear piercing!!



    Rear view of where i located mine, facing directly up at any persons head in the drivers seat



    You can just make it out above the left yellow screw nut for the vents. Looks like a shiny penny



    I have a second one on its way also as i was impressed with this. Second one is going between the fire wall just in front of the pollen filter, so i wired all that up also - wire just popped though the rubber grommet behind the glove box then up through the drainage rubber.



    I have a hidden switch fitted to deactivate, not taken any pics of course

    But once you get out you arm it, if my keys are ever taken then ignition live will sound the alarms untill the battery dies, so should deafen them and wake me up... Rather that then have my car stolen...

    All in all its cost me less then a tenner and an hour of my day



    Here's a Video of it in action.... I also have a child like paint image i did if anyones interested in a wiring diagram

    That a stand alone alarm then Lee? I have a Piezo Siren that was an extra on a Clifford alarm i had a good few years back, was fitted as an extra just under the dashboard. its a high pitched one, some where around 120db or so, designed to put off someone who breaks in to the car by trying in essence to burst their ear drums I imagine. I was wondering it the VX alarm sounder is just that, a sounder, and if i could just piggy back the alarm on to the VX one and stick the siren in the cabin.

    Hehe good solution. One word of warning, all alarms have to shut off after a certian time. If it goes off in a populated area you will get done for noise disturbance!! :-)

    I wouldn't even try mess with the standard alarm to be honest, Many have tried and failed to replace the sounder or add a louder one... Only thing i think thats worked on some pre facelifts is taking it off and the horn will sound instead?!?

    And sod noise disturbance, I'd rather keep my car and take the slap on the wrists

    TBH if the criminal has got past the security which will stop them turning the ignition on, or have nicked the keys I don't think the alarm will stop them!!

    If stolen to order your probably right, but mines no VXR. And i had my Astra nicked with the keys a few years ago and it was not a nice feeling... If anything it'll give me a chance to wake up and run outside with my samurai sword so thats where the deterant comes in

    Default Fitted The Second Sounder Today...

    1st i removed the clip holding the fire proof material and folded it back, Then drilled out 2 of the dimples...

    One for the bolt to hold the sensor, the other to feed the wire through...



    Then i earthed the sounder on the bolt, then pulled the power wire up between the wall and fire proof material. Then connected it all up...



    And here's what it looks like before everything is neatly but back and pollen filter flap closed...



    Probably will never get burgled again, but it should be funny the next time the lads at work decide my car needs to be moved as i generally leave my keys on my desk

    Second one starts sounding a split second later so the tones dont match either, so its even more annoying now
