    Default alarm problems

    just wondered if anyone could give me any advice reguarding the alarm system on a 1.9 cdti sri. only got the car saturday n had to take it back within an hour as alarm kept going off. Was informed it had a new siren fitted and that unit might need to charge. so took car for a long run( About 80miles) give or take. got car home n within 10 mins Alarm going off again. called perrys n they suggested disconnecting siren till well today as it was a bank holiday weekend. Not being used to the new vectra i did as they said only to this time car horn sounded(was advised by mechanic to disconnect siren). thought they were supposed to know things like this would happen.Ended up callin AA out who disabled it for me.
    Anyway AA Man also said that the lights should flash when alarm sounds. Wondered if this was correct.

    Sorry bout the ramble but had earache from wife all weekend as she wouldnt use car because Safeguards now displayed on computer screen whenever you start the car.

    I take it that yours is not an estate?. As I have heard that the alarm wires on the "boot side" glass can get scratched and broken.

    was it from a main dealer or a "smaller" garage - they may have inadvertantly replaced the alarm sounder and that was not the underlying fault - could be the bonnet switch or interior ultrasonics -

    just seen it's a 2008 model under warranty... get it to a main dealer and see what they have to say
