    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear All, a year ago I purchased an alfa 147 (right Hand Drive ) and been restoring it slowly to its former glory. Most stuff has been solved and getting near completion but I have a problem getting the original Factory installed alarm working. Originally I could not even find the location...
  2. Random alarm going off

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    All, My Brera has the unfortunate (For my neighbours) of sounding of the alarm at random times. It can be in the daytime or in the middle of the night which as you can imagine doesn`t please them. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening and have a solution ? Thanks, Bob
  3. Alarm started going off on its own.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Over the last couple of weeks the alarm on our G has started going off on its own. I am thinking that it may be a failing battery as the stop start no longer works (Exclaimation mark and unavailable message) Has anyone else had a random alarm going off when the battery is failing? The car...
  4. What alarm do I have?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone help me identify the alarm from the siren? I know it's a meta alarm as I have meta fobs, but after looking on the abacus alarms website, the siren doesn't seem to be the M11 or the SC1T2. Another problem is that the little metal key to disable the alarm will fit into the keyhole on...

  8. Disabling alarm on 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, One of the first things I did when I got my 156 9 years ago was to disable the annoying beeps when you lock the car.

    Alfa Stelvio
    I have had a couple of instances when the car alarm has gone off and stopped shortly after and then when I start the car up it says "Attempted break in detected" on the dash. However, there is no physical sign of an attempted break in. Anyone else experienced this? Car is a QF.

    Had an issue last night where I unlocked and opened the drivers door using the key and the alarm start sounding. When I locked the car prior to opening it last night, I locked it using the key so the alarm shouldn't have been activated. I managed to stop the alarm sounding by using the fob, but...
  17. False Alarm

    Alfa Giulia
    The alarm on my Veloce goes off at random in the middle of the night. It can be a month between alerts, or a few days. I wake up in a panic to try and grab the key and turn it off to stop the neighbours complaining about being woken up (it has usually stopped by the time I have finished...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I use the keyfob to unlock the boot but everytime I open the boot the alarm sounds. Is this a fault or normal behaviour... can't find anything in the destruction manual about alarm behaviour. Trying to think back to what my 159 did sure the alarm didn't go off when I opened the boot however...
