Prior to the forced entry to my boot, if I opened it with the key without using the remote button, the alarm would sound as the bootlid lock clicked open. However since the theft it doesn't do this. What is the correct operation for the alarm system where the boot is concerned? Its a 97 1.8 16v.
you can test alarm by turning ignition key till dash lights come on then off then depress the bonnet switch for alarm 5 times before 5 seconds it will bleep to let you know that test is starting then proceed to open each door and boot the alarm will bleep when you open each point then after all done the siren will sound for a second , i think i maybe slightly off about the start sequence on this so dont give up first time this should at least confirm wether switch has been damaged or just not setting proper.(hope it helps).
On a similar subject, my alarm does'nt seem to work so I removed the PCB from the glove compartment to have a look, it seems there is only a non latching switch which obviously should send a signal to a relay which should initiate the alarm system,?? then on to another PCB where is this located ? BTW I don't have an instruction manual hence this stupid question.
