Flat battery & car alarm
Hi. Got a bit of a problem with my car alarm. I got a flat battery a few days ago, and had it jump-started yesterday morning then drove for 45 minutes hoping to recharge the battery. Problem was that the car alarm started going off as soon as the engine started, and didn't stop until I stopped driving (very embarrassing in peak hour traffic!), so I think it was draining the battery while I was trying to charge it. Needless to say, the battery was flat again last night. I'm thinking I might get the alarm disconnected, as I don't use it anyway. Has anyone else had this problem and know how to get around it? Other option might be to replace the battery altogether, but it's not that old and should recharge okay.
