Re: avin a bit a bother.
I gather the factory fitted alarms are a bit temperamental, I had some bother with the spider alarm and ended up just ripping it out and having a clifford one fitted.
You won't be able to use the replacement box from the scrappers as it will most likely be keyed to the old key fob. You may be able to strip it down and replace the siren with the one from the scrap car if that's what's faulty but could be a ******* of a job.
Are you sure the alarm's turned on? I believe you can deactivate it with the key, also if the microswitchs that monitor the doors and boot/bonnet etc. aren't shut properly the alarm won't work properly. I think if it registers a door open the internal sensors won't be armed.
