Just bought a 70K 55 plate yesterday and it's fairly pristine. I'm over the moon with it aside from a couple of niggles. Drove it home from the dealer yesterday and no issue. Go to a camping shop and pick up a big new tent and pop this in the boot and drive home. It had rolled around a bit. After about half an hour, notice lights are flashing. Disarm, arm and sit back down. After whatever time going off again. Repeat until fade. I disarmed it and deadlocked it.
Driving into work this morning and I notice that after switching my window defrosting on, only the top half of the back window defrosted. Bottom half stayed as it was. Might be co-incidental, might not?
I read up on here about Vectra Estate's and the alarm going off. Most likely this is the break wire in the rear window. I'm not getting any Safeguard warnings but, when I arm the alarm it flashes instantly.
I've read that a solution is to simply short the two sensor wires or remove the fuse "23" in the boot fuse board. The latter sounds the simplest? Would this "fix" the problem (assuming that this was the cause)? The car also has 3 months warranty. Return to garage for them to sort or ball ache?
Thanks in advance.
