    alarm has gone tits up

    bassically this is the deal

    my alarm keeps going of for no reason

    both the horn and the siren

    after one cycle the horn part stops leaving just the siren whaling.

    and then i cant turn the siren off.

    i even managed to start the car with the siren still whaling and it didn't stop till i switched the engine and removed the key.

    i have brought a new power sounder unit but not fitted it yet as originally i thought that this was the problem as when i went out to the car just the siren was sounding.

    any ideas on what it could be before i let vauxhall loose with the tech 2 and start throwing money away???

    Standard Vaux Alarm on a MK4 astra BTW

    It's definaltey the power sounder mate, no doubt about it.

    The symptoms are axact compared to what happened to me.

    I remeber my power sounder going off in the middle of driving and when I had just started the car, it was pretty annoying.

    the really strange thing is that it was fine all last night but as soon as i got to work it went off.

    so you siren just carried on going off even though you had turned the alarm off on the key fob??

    Yeah exactly, I thought about disconnecting my battery at one point, but it stopped after a while, Tech 2 found the power sounder fault, replced it at VX and it's fine now
