    I would have said that it's not 'fit for purpose', as you have a string of complaints about the unit you should be entitled to some recompense.

    If the fitter don't give you any joy, I'd go direct to Clifford and see what they say. either that alarm's faulty or its been fitted wrong.

    As for the 'servicing' of electronic products - never heard of that before, sounds like a bag of ar5e to me. Get your fitter to show you where it says it on any docsumentation you may have.

    Good luck with it mate - stay calm and be assertive.

    Sounds like it was never installed properly in the first place which if you can prove, could get you a nice little claim.

    If Clifford have a certificated installer scheme, get an independent qualified fitter to check it and put down in writing that the alarm is not working as it should.

    dont say anything bout havin to get it serviced in the handbook mate - says a lot of stuff bout being fitted by an authorised clifford dealer and it has to get returned to clifford by aforesaid to get looked at to determine if its faulty.

    on the same sort of subject, what are these alarms like.
    i was thinking about getting a clifford with intelli start etc, are cliffords more of a gimmick than a good alarm?

    was also looking at toad system

    But for the intelli start you have to down grade your car and do away with the factory immobiliser.

    Not worth it IMO
