Re: GT alarm query
When the alarm is activated there should be 1 long beep, hazards flash and the doors lock.
When it's deactivated the hazards flash twice, 2 short beeps, the doors unlock and the interior light comes on.
If the system beeps any more than that then there is a problem and the system is telling you so.
As your garage did a Service By Comparison (SBC), then what's to say the other car isn't faulty too, I work on aircraft now and SBC is never relied on in the diagnosis process, just imagine me signing off a job by saying "well it worked the same as that jet over there that's been sat for 2 years", I don't think the 200 or so families would be happy with that at the inquest. Not saying a faulty alarm is going to kill you though.
