Alarm problem solved, might be useful

I was just about to post here regarding a problem with my alarm.
the kids left a light on and the battery was flat. when i went to jump start alarm stated to go off.
Now i've never fully understood the alarm. i never got any fob wjen i bought it, just keys. the alarm has gone off a few times but the car always started. ( i now understand it isn't linked to the immobiliser.) everything would be back to normal when the siren stopped after 30secs.
tonight it just kept going. had to disconnect the siren. but i couldn't take the car out to recharge the battery as the hazards were going every 30secs. a search here revealed some facts. was looking fr a quick way to disconnect the indicators, and was directed to abacus. thier website should the controller and i then recognised what that we black box is in the footwell. went to pull it out and realised it had button on the top (through a rubber gromet). pressed it by accident tbh and voila, no more flashing indicators.

hope this is of use to some.

Rendo,

Isn't that the fuel cutout reset. maybe it jump starting the electronics have become confused? anyway it worked so all good. Still strange. Mine as an electronic key that you insert into a slot on the drivers side and it deactivates the alarm.

vRS eating GT.

the black box in the footwell is the fuel cut off switch, the alarm "brain" is sitting either above or below the head unit.

what do you mean by this, is it just one of the keys that comes with the car?
i have always been a bit surprised by the alarm. as i said, when it has gone off in the past, it has only run for 30secs. then (i assume) it has reset. i have never found away to de-activate it. But then i never had a fob so i never really activated it either.
I guess i need to have another look?

If i decide to just get rid of the alarm, whats the best method of removal. the siren is out.
if i remove the brains, will that isolate the flashers from the system. is there anything else that needs taken out?

The key is just a little black rectangular tag. It must have a electronic chip inside it and when you insert it in the slot located down low on the dash it must recognise the chip and deactivates the alarm.

To be honest I think the removal of the alarm is dependant on the type of alram that it is. Mine was Alfa standard do it is wire as an imobbiliser as well.
