Pre 1998 Alarm systems
After some detective work and help from various threads here etc it seems that the alarm system fitted to my GTV is NOT a meta alarm as in cars made from 1998 onwards. I have determined this by the type of fob that came with the car (square shaped with fiat lgo on it) and the fact that the internal sensors look greatly different than the ones on the meta alarm in my Spider.
It seems there must be some other type of alarm brain in the car somewhere and the alarm fob I have doesnt do anything to it at the moment.
Has anyone experience with this kind of system or can offer help getting the thing working again?
edit: still to try opening up the old fob and seeing if it needs battery.
