    confused Newbie needs advice

    As i don't no much about motors, thought I'd join this site & ask people that do, great site Ive just done the fan resistor fix, would never have done that if it weren't for this site. The problem i have now is safeguard on my display I've read on here that its a fault with the alarm system and that it will need plugging in to a diagnostics, does anyone local do diagnostics or recommend anywhere that does, cause i don't fancy getting ripped off tbh.
    Thanks

    Some of the most common causes of the safeguard message are a lose connection on the ultrasonic sensors (next to the interior lights), lose connection on the bonnet switch or damaged/disconnected glass break sensors (estate only).
    Also worth checking the fuses at the end of the dash and in the boot.
