Quote from: normanh on September 16, 2023, 18:01Gaz - your problem might be the battery not putting out the correct voltage which might explain the alternator issues you have. I am not sure how the alarm reacts to a voltage drop a weakening battery over time might explain why its activating.Norman

Quote from: Gaz mr-s on September 17, 2023, 00:17There's a flashing led when the car is unlocked, so I assume that's the Immobiliser.So does the LED it refers to mean the alarm one..?
Quote from: normanh on September 17, 2023, 17:22Opps so I am lol. Still the battery can be an issue if it works on a voltage drop - switches on the bonnet and engine cover?Norman
