    Angry Vectra Life 1.8 Saloon alarm problem

    I purchased a second hand car at the beginning of
    Fe 2009(Vectra Life 1.8 Saloon) and everything was ok until 4 days ago when the alarm it starts on its own at night every hour like.
    It happens only in the late evening or during night so I am forced to disconnect the main battery in order to sleep.

    I am going to the Vauxhall dealer next week to fix the problem.
    I tried any combination: slam the doors, open the windows, reset the alarm be presssing the key buttons when key in ingnition and nothing.

    Other tips?

    Regards,
    Alex

    Life don't have an alarm standard fit, so it's either an optional fit Vauxhall one, or some aftermarket thing.

    If it is a Vauxhall one, I'd be almost certain it's the batteries in the Powersounder. Or a spider in the ultrasonic sensors

    I thought all UK spec Vectra-C's had an alarm as standard fit?

    The Vec-C is Thatcham Cat1 security rated, which means that it has to have both an immobiliser and alarm fitted.

    Power sounder is in the boot, right next to the fuse box, btw.
