New alarm box....how to get it working
I've got a Phase 2 Spider with the factory central locking/alarm system. The remote locking wasnt working so the local stealer installed a new remote reciever and got the remote locking working. The remote wouldnt deactivate the alarm and the dealer said that the alarm box wasnt communicating with the reciever and was faulty.
So i bought a new alarm box (ridiculously priced) and plugged it into the correct spot above the driver's side wheel arch....and it still doesnt work. When i turn the key on the alarm body to switch the alarm on it gives one short beep. After that the remote has no affect on the alarm system. The doors still lock/unlock but the hazards dont flash and there's no beeping sounds. Does the alarm box need to be programmed into the reciever or vice versa???
