Hi everyone, I have an issue with the alarm on my vectra estate it is the alarm, which won't stop going off. It has been back to where I bought it from (an independent dealer) and they have been very good, trying to fix it, sending it to Vaux, all sorts.
It went off the first time a couple of days after I bought it home, and just wouldn't stop, so it went back to the dealer and they did their diagnostic testing on it, but couldn't find any faults - I guess that it needed to go to a Vaux specific place so they could find the fault codes?
Anyway the garage replaced the sounder as they thought that may have been the problem, and it seemed to fix it. PLus they kept it inside and outside (as a kind of test) to see if it went off and it didnt. THe minute I got it home, it started going off again !
Anyway it has been to Vaux about 10 days ago ish, who did the test and found one fault which was just that it needed 're-setting' and re-programming. So as of 10 days ago, it hadn't gone off so I thought, good its obviously fixed, til yesterday when it went off again so we drove it straight to Vaux. We met the guy from the garage there who had words with Vaux service dept as they werent being overly helpful, who tested and replaced the battery in case that was the problem, and again it seemed to fix it but it had also been booked in for next Tuesday in case it didn't fix it.
So overall, the sounder has been replaced, there was a new battery put in, the alarm (or ecu thing?) has been re-set, the rear window things with the sensors on have been cleaned to within an inch of their life (as we have dogs and they put nose smears on the windows) and yet we got it home yesterday, and it was quiet for a good few hours, then all of a sudden started going off again . We had to disconnect the battery in the end as it was driving us nuts, and the neighbours too.
Sorry for this being so long, but I am getting so frustrated/angry/upset with this, and I really hope someone can help, thank you so much, most appreciated
