    How Does Your Alarm Flash?

    Normally when i lock my car, the alarm light stays on whilst its arming, then does its usual flashing!

    Tonight i noticed instead of stayin on when arming, it flashed quite fast then goes to its normal intermedient flash! Surely this isnt normal, as it has changed from what it usally does!

    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    mine started doing this before the power sounder failed, but as Autosparks said its probably best to get it tech 2d to confirm

    They tend to charge by the hour, I've got the same thing happen, the flashing light thing, but its down to my powersounder. Its either a new powersounder or new batterys needed for me. I hope you can get it sorted.
    Never happy, always wanting more!

    Mine did this with my total closure unit fitted so I knew I could ignore the flash pattern

    2 posts proving it could be nothing or could be worse

    I have autoclosure too! jus took it up the industrial estate, checked the autoclosure that was fine, opened the bonnet to set the alarm off, all flashers came on aswell as the alarm sound, will see if it gets any worse!
