Alarm flashes after battery reconnect - RESOLVED
Had to reconnect the battery on my R-reg GTV, and as expected the hazards began flashing intermittently. Didn't have my remote fob at the time so breakdown assistance man had a fiddle under the steering column to try and get the flashes to stop, no luck.
Finally got home, tried to use the remote fob (old style black rectangle) to disable the alarm but no effect. Little red light on the remote fob lights up when pressed, but nothing happens on the car (i.e. fob doesn't even lock/unlock the doors. Tried turning the ignition to MAR and pressing fob, still nothing.
Have had a look behind the stereo for META alarm box, but can't see anything.
I'm not sure if any of the following are an issue, would be good to see what you think:
1) bonnet light on dash shows as open, when bonnet is completely closed
2) I stopped using the remote fob a few months ago as it was a bit temperamental, and just reverted to the physical key for locking/unlocking
Currently have my boot wedged open and the battery disconnected, to stop the flashes draining it, not an ideal situation!
Any help much appreciated!
