Hmmm Strange Alarm Problem

Hi, just had a very strange experience with the alarm on my 97 2.0 TS GTV. Driven the car as usual today, parked up, locked the doors and set the alarm with the key fob - all OK. 20 minutes later the alarm siren goes off - no hazard lights, just the siren. The car is parked on a drive, so no one could have knocked it or driven by a bit too closely - so my first thought is that maybe I've not closed the window properly or something. So I unlock the car with the key fob - siren is still going (still no hazards), lock it again, unlock it etc & the siren is still continually going off! After about 10 minutes and some curtain twitching action I pop the boot lid open to see if there is a master switch & the bl**dy thing stops. I haven't opened the boot for about 3 days - so I'd assumed it was closed OK.

No idea what the problem is - but I'd imagine that I've got more to come - any ideas?

Re: Strange Alarm Problem

I had a similar problem, I think it was a broken siren. In the end I took the alarm fuse out of the control unit (behind the stereo) but I was lucky that my siren didnt have its own battery.

Going to get a new meta alarm (£300) fitted in the new year!
