    Power Sounder Question

    I have just read the article on changing the power sounder:
    http://www.bramcote-ridge.org.uk/HowTo/powersounder.pdf

    I have been told that once fitted you need to have tech2 plugged in to activate the new sounder on the alarm. Is this right?

    Also, I read somewhere a while back that someone managed to remove their power sounder and replace the rechargable battery with a similar battery availalbe from Maplins.

    Anyone know about any of this please?

    Mike - it appears that it only needs Tech 2ing if you if you fit a new sounder with the ignition off. Leave the keys in as per the how to and you should be OK.

    And for the battery replacement - I've got an updated How To, with the relavent details that I forgot to stick on the server . Gimme 30 mins and try again.

    Brilliant - thanks. I'll be getting my £55 back for the power sounder then.

    Allegedly it is - here's the original thread where the battery swap gen was first brought to light.

    To be fair, the guy who posted about this linked to the 2.4v version.

    I shall be trying this over Christmas, I'm fed up with the beeping now (it has been 6 months).
