145 factory alarm not disabling.
I may seem intent on putting questions on every fault I come across with my 145 on this Forum, but if I come across anything which beats me... this is the best place to get answers. I appreciate the assistance.
(End gushing intro)
Anyway... when I first got this car, the seller told me that the batts in the alarm key-fob needed repalacement, which I did.
I have since then noticed that the car is always hard to *unlock* to the extent that this morning I was trying for about 3 mins before I had to use the key. I was holding the fob right up to the window on the drivers side, pointing it directly at the sensor. When I eventualy got in, even placing the fob next to the sensor failed to cause the alarm to disable.
Previously I found that the IR LED in the Fob had loosened and was open-connection, so I soldered it.
Bear in mind also that I have no problem with locking the car, it's only opening.
So my questions are...
Does anybody have a circuit diagram for this alarm system?
And does anybody have this problem also?
