Re: Alarm randomly going off

I've had my alarm siren module removed. A new module would have cost ~£200 and I was extremely loathe to pay this as I find alarms stupid and pointless anyway. So I've just had it removed and now it's all fine. The alarm doesn't go off randomly. The car is still technically alarmed and the hazards will flash if the alarm goes off, it just won't make a sound. Fine by me!

The module itself is completely sealed up and impossible to get in to. I reckon it's probably just the NiMH battery inside that has failed. Could probably just replace that and fix the problem, but it's been designed to be non-serviceable. I really hate that. No reason for it.
