    Turn the ignition on, then do it. Or you can turn the ignition on and disconnect it within 10-15 seconds.

    EDIT: Might help if I read posts before responding

    Firstly is it the Vaux Alarm you are talking about or an aftermarket unit.

    The more details you give the better !

    right try this. this it what i do and never a prob.

    before disconnecting bat, put a hammer or something between the bonnet and the alarm sounder switch for the bonnet, just to jam it down so car thinks bonnets shut. ( if i make sense )

    then disconnect battery on the live. alarm will sound after few seconds so just hold it there and wait. then when it does just touch the live back against the battery and it will go of. then you can keep it disconnected and it shouldnt do it agan..

    works everytime for me. did this just yest too to reset ecu...

    in the end i took the wheel off took the powersounder out and dis connected it, it was still going off so i wrapped it in bundles of rags and old curtains and locked it in my tool box where i could hardly hear it, it eventually shut up and i got the job done lol.
