    familiar topic

    ok had my concept 300 fitted today with the motion sensor and window closure....but it kept going of radomly!!! phoned the guy up and he told me to cut a blue wire on the motion sensor as this was the wire which was making it overly sensitive when i parked on a slope. the alarm seems to be fine now but im a little disouraged by this 'cut the blue wire' jobby!

    anyone know of this over sensitive prob???

    also ordered my alloys today!!!! not as happy as i thought i would be because i couldnt get the team dynamics diablos or the wolfrace urban racer or the league katana or any other wheel i really wanted!!!! i settled for the PA 2's which seem nice enough and they should compliment my white astra quite well! anyone here with pics of the PA 2's on thier car???

    cheers.....

    Sorry but if it was fitted by a good company they should come out and sort it all them selves rather than telling you what to do.

    I don't know about clifford alarms but on most the one's I fit the blue wire is the trigger so it may be that the sensor isn't even working now

    Worth a check

    Surely by cutting the wire, this function will be disabled totally now?

    Make them come out and fix it because I most definitely wouldn' be happy with that kind of after-sales service!

    Where did you order your alloys from? If it's a website can you let me know as I need to order some myself but can't find a good enough company really that sell a certain wheel I want.

    Wheelbase in oldham seemed a reasonalbly good place. If they dont have what you want in stock they order it from the manufacturer, in fact this is normal practise so you get the perfect fittment. To Just not do a perticular wheel seems a bit odd? :shock:

    Cheers for that. I've heard of wheelbase before but didn't realise they were so local!

    They sell the wheels I want so will get in touch with them.

    WTF!!!! I would not be at all happy with that, it sounds like you have just dissabled a sensor (possibly even invalidated the CAT1 status of the alarm :?: ) I would contact Clifford and ask them if this person is an authorised dealer and tell them what he told you to do!

    IMHO I would not be happy :roll:

    Man, go and get that sorted out. Cliffords are too expensive and too highly strung not to be set up properly.

    You hear loads of nightmare stories about cliffords and anyone who knows about them will tell you they need to be installed properly or they'll give trouble. Phone up another clifford dealer (an authorised one) or head office and see if they'll shed some light on the blue wire.
