Moaning How do I disable the alarm on my 156?

The button to disarm the alarm on my 156 will not work - the actual switch underneath the rubber button is not working. The battery in the remote is new and worked fine this morning. My other remote failed about a year ago.
Catch 22 - Cannot start the car to take it to the garage to have the problem fixed and as I live 50 miles from the main dealer am not likely to be able to get a replacement unit. Is it possible to disarm the alarm and just use the key to lock the doors etc?

Despair as I need my car in the morning !!!

Hi gparry, try sending a message to a member on here called 'Chris', he strips and rebuilds keys as a little eBay business for about thirty quid a time, he will be able to advise you better than anyone else.

Re: How do I disable the alarm on my 156?

When my button failed in a car park in town I carefully cut around the plastic with my swiss army knife (never leave home without it )and shorted out across the switch. That unlocked the car and tuned the alarm off, then just used the key to lock/unlock till I got it repaired. Good luck.

Very clever. Wish I'd thought of that when it happened to me. But the simple answer is no you can't turn the alarm off without the remote. Funnily enough though you can start the car and drive it and eventually the alarm will stop sounding.
