    Odd siren sound

    Had my 2.2 Coupe serviced a week ago. Been working fine, but since today the siren has been making an odd sound. It's not the alarm sound, not the three pips but a police like sound. There's no rhyme or reason to it and it does it when I'm driving along.

    What can I do now to stop it?

    Sounds to me like the battery in the power sounder has gone, had mine replaced about a month ago. Its located in the nearside wheel arch, but you can't replace it yourself as it needs to be programmed by Tech 2.

    Hope that helps mate.

    They change the complete power sounder unit, cos I think its sealed. Not too sure how much it was as it was under warrenty.

    They've changed mine and the ultra-sonic sensors.

    I also had this problem and Vauxhall changed the whole unit as the backup battery had gone. the Bl**dy thing has just started doing it again and it is out of warranty now :x

    Hmmm.... Clifford Concept 600 here I come :?:

    Just don't see the point in keep replacing the unit when there is clearly a fault with the design or parts :roll:

    How far out of warrenty?

    Some dealers are quite sympathetic with the alarms and might change it free or at a reduced cost.

    Seems to be a common fault this, mine was only 6 months old when it did this.
