    Default Malfunctioning Alarm System.

    Hi,

    I could do with some advise please. I locked my car and the alarm and hazards went off. Unlocked and it stopped, opened doors, checked for animals left kids etc, but none.
    Re locked and the alarm kicks off again, every time. I've had to leave it unlocked all day
    Is there something i should look at/clean?

    Many thanks.
    Paul

    Could be anything - best to get the fault code(s) read out. Beats guessing.

    In the meantime you can lock the car without setting the alarm by reaching in through a passenger door and pressing the lock button on the drivers door panel and exit out through the door you reached in through.

    Alternately open drivers window and reach in to press the lock button on the door panel, followed by pressing the close window button and remove arm before it fully closes - remembering of course to remove keys from the car beforehand.

    Note however the deadlocks won't be set.

    Got it, thanks for that info. I have changed a number plate bulb today....seeing as these lights stop on for a few minutes after locking, could the voltage issue be a cause?

    The number plate lights should go out within a couple of seconds of the car being locked. I can't see that being the issue with the alarm though else using the door to door lighting (where you pull the indicator switch to put the headlights and reverse lights on for 30 secs) would set it off.
