159 alarm!!! again!!
Hi Guys, quick question I'm hoping for help with
Last year, at 7am...my 159 decided it was time to wake up the street. I hit unlock (I think it was actually boot open, then unlock in quick succession) and the alarm started sounding. Nothing would stop it, neither the main key, spare key, unplugging the battery, starting the car etc etc - it just kept going off
The car would start fine etc
Eventually, after a lot of swearing I ran out of options, but it eventually died thankfully.
Anyway after that I got it to a garage and they diagnosed it as needing a new alarm control unit. I had this done and it seemed to have fixed the issue
Now tonight I came out to the car..hit boot unlock then open...and the alarm started again
Same issue, wouldn't stop, I even drove home with it going off. It eventually stopped again. Now I am terrified to arm the alarm!...The year old alarm...
My question is why could this be happening? As said the alarm was changed last year, and it's a new battery from last year too
Any suggestions would be great!
