    Default Alarm for Vectra 1.9CDTI

    Hello,

    I am interested to find a list of compatible car alarms for a 2005 Vectra C 1.9 CDTI. I have brought one model from Viper - 791XV http://www.viper.com/Products/Produc...?ProductID=104 to find out that it's not compatible with the car (remote start engine not working, lighting system and electric windows doesn't work properly).


    Thank you in advance.

    Only 1 person I know of has fitted an aftermarket alarm system - and it was VERY expensive and VERY difficult.

    Because the car has a CANBUS wiring system, it's virtually impossible to tamper with the wiring in any way without it upsetting the computers. Send GreenGrowler a PM - he may be able to help.

    Thanks Dennis,

    Indeed, I'm not from UK. But I saw what other said about Thatcham Cat 1 alarm. I will have a look at this one, also I will ask my local Opel dealer about a good quality car alarm that has at least a pager, if not an remote engine start (I'd like to have this included). I've asked here why this alarm it's not compatible with the car and they said it's because of the electronic inside the car.
    There are equipments that can be interfaced between the alarm and the ignition circuit, equipment that fools the electronics that I have inserted the key and can start the engine. This is what I have heard, I'm not sure if this is 100% correct.
    I would like to know if there are any other car alarm types that work on this car.
    Thanks again for help.
