    Default Power sounder problem

    Put my 08 Vectra in for a service at my local vauxhall dealers and during the service it developed a power sounder fault. A new sounder was fitted and an adjustment to the boot and I was told all was well. After 15mins of getting it home the alarm sounded and kept on for a further three times. I took it back to the garage and they admitted that the original sounder must have been OK. On contacting Vauxhall Technical Branch they concluded that was either a break in the wiring somewhere or possibly a fault in the Body Control Unit. The cost for the wiring check approx £200 and the cost of a Body Control unit fitted approx £700. I don't really have a lot of confidence in their judgement so I asked them to disconnect the sounder whilst I consider my options. can anyone offer any suggestions as to the possible cause and remedy.

    Not an estate. Also the boot light is off, wonder whether its wired in to the sounder circuit?
