    Default The alarm is pathetic

    I accidentally set off the alarm on my brother Avensis and not only did an electronic alarm go off but the horn as well. It was really quite loud.

    So I set the alarm off on my Vectra and it was the most pathetic electric “beep…beep” I’ve ever heard. Surly this can’t be right? No horn and a noise only just audible....

    Partly due to the do-gooders and tree-huggers pressing for limits in the noise level and duration of factory-fitted car alarms . Something to do with 'noise pollution' $hit. Of course it doesn't apply to aftermarket alarms or the emergency services Our lives are being ruled more and more by minorities of numpties.

    I jet washed the car a few days ago and forgot i had left the windows open!! Didn't notice until it was too late because of the wind deflectors!!

    How is the best way to test the alarm? I've never heard mine so if an alarm goes off outside I wouldn't know if it was my Veccy being nicked or not...
