    My (NON CAR ALARM) keeps goin off!!?!?!?!?

    done it twice now, just randomly, but, its not the proper car alarm, its like, the sound of when you leave the phone off the hook for too long? but obviosly louder. Only thin i can think of is ive just put in a new headunit? could that be causing it!?

    So annoying but weird.

    Any help on this would be great!

    What alarms do you have fitted? do you have an aftermarket one as well as the standard vaux one. Can't see how the headunit is causing the alarm to sound. More likely the power sounder.

    yeah fascia on the headunit both times. Its done it twice this week, once apparently when i was at work the thursday, and then just now at 8PM.

    seems just completely random. Fascia is allways on. But i put the new headunit in last week.

    Whats the power sounder all about? sounds like it could be that?

    pop ur bonnet.. looking at top of engine bay you will have a sticker top right. under that is your power sounder (i think) its like the secondry noise in your standard alarm. (ACTUALLY under passengers wheel arch!) woops

    also goes off if battery is disconected etc.

    will look for a picture for you m8.

    think it do this if its needing replaced.

    have you disconected the battery lately or the connection loose?

    best bet would be to ask autospark, or someone lese will be along soon to correct me or say yes..

    (prob better being moved to electrical tho)

    I HOPE!

    Power sounder is underneath the plastic arch cover inside the passenger side front wheel arch. Dead easy to change, there's a how too on here, cost about £50 if i remember correctly.
