    Default Alarm Advice

    Just a query guys, how many sounders does the vectra alarm have.
    My coupe had a power sounder and it used the main car horn aswell, but my vectra only makes a noise from the sounder in the boot, is this the norm for Veccie C's.

    fraid so, its flippin feeble at the best of times..

    why VX decided to hide it away within the boot panelling is beyond me..

    for a proper alarm system, you need to hear Green Growlers Clifford system.. painful springs to mind..

    Well looks like I'm gona skin myself for an alarm system, the coupe's aren't even as high a spec as the Vectras but they've got louder alarms, unbelievable.

    What's your system like, Mr growler and where can I get 1.

    M8, mines a full monty Clifford, plenty of sensors, sirens, 2-way pager, remote start, all fully battery backed up.
    Mine is a Matrix RSX3.5, imported from the states, though I believe a very similar system is now available over here.
    In all honesty m8, fitting to the Vec C is a COMPLETE nightmare, you bump into the canbus system at nearly every step.
    I have my doubts many alarm fitters, if they know what they are letting themselves in for, would even touch a Vec C.
    I know for a fact, non of them would go to the lengths I have to integrate into the car to get remote start, and central locking/factory alarm control etc.
    I am very confident in saying, mine is probably the only remote start Vec C in the country, and it'll probably stay that way !
    No professional fitters would take the risk IMO.

    If you start shopping around for a system, and someone to fit, just make damn sure they know what car you have, make sure they know what it is like, ie, canbus electrical system, if they haven't done one before run a mile !!!
    It's very, very easy for things like this to go disastrously and expensively wrong.
    But I do wish you luck.

    You could also have a chat with Mark The Cabby, he has a top class alarm, that also works as a tracker with the RAC, so if he breaks down he can hit the button and they know exactly where he is. He had this fitted professionally so there are people out there that can do it.

    Cool, at least there are a few fitters out there that can do them then.

    I did find by probing a test light into the wiring of the siren when i fitted the GSM Pager / Tracker that the horn started going off with the siren but i never got around to investigating if it could be done all the time via a little bulb or if there would be any long term effects.

    I was guessing it was some kind of Anti Tamper alert i was triggering
