Default Alarming!!!

Curse word alarm!!!

I went to start the M today but there wasn’t enough power to turn her over. I locked it up and went to rummage for the trickle charger, about a minute or so later the alarm started going off.

Anyway, I charged the car up, turned it over and it fired into life. Bingo! So I locked it up and went off, but, 2 mins later and the alarm started going off.

I unlocked and relocated the car and 2 mins later the alarm started sounding.

Question is, what’s wrong with it and how can I sort it?

Don't know if it will solve the problem but you could unplug the bonnet sensor and see if that helps?

Just a thought - does it go off with the charger connected and the car locked using the remote? Could be that the battery is right on the limit of needing replacing.

I’ll have to investigate more tomorrow. Good shout about the battery, I have no idea how long it’s been on there.
