I don't have my alarm activated, I don't carry the fob, and use my key to open door. The siren is de-activated with the little key.
When I was refurbing the air filter housing I left the bonnet open (but down) as I had the slam plate loose. So it took me longer than I thought, prob two weeks with the bonnet open.
This drained the battery, I concluded due to the bonnet open switch for the alarm.
I've recently noticed the dreaded 'boot open' indicator problem, i.e. it thinks the boot is open even though it's not, and now as its not my daily driver the battery is flat again.
First do you think I am right, it was the alarm/door open causing the drain.
If so, is there a fuse I can pull to stop the drain, can the alarm monitoring be totally turned off?
Re the boot open, I've read the threads, not very enlightening, confusion as to where the micro switch is etc, if anyone can help, that would be great.
I'm taking It to Intaservices on Monday to get new steering boots, don't want to burden them or my wallet with this.
