147 alarm nightmare
Hi all, hope someone can help!
i have a 2001 147 Selespeed and this problem has appeared from nowhere....
....basically, the alarm has a mind of it's own. When i arm it it beeps as usual and sometimes it beeps a second time. After a random amount of time the alarm decides to sound. I have had to resort to locking it with the key only to stop it going off randomly in the middle of the night, (which i'm not best pleased about as i'm sure i wouldn't be covered by the insurance if it was nicked with the alarm not active!)
I have searched the threads for this and the closest thing i found was that a second beep when arming meant that something wasn't shut properly and therefor the alarm may sound. I have noticed though that sometimes even when there is only one beep the alarm still randomly sounds.
Hope someone can give me some advice before i have to go to the dealership and pay over the odds to get it looked at.
One last thing... i have noticed a small patch of paintwork on the roof (about the size of a 10p) is starting to "peel". My paintwork warranty ran out in December 04, do you think there's any chance of getting anything out of the dealership?
thanks in advance
