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.
