    how long should a power sounder last

    I bought one about 12 months ago as alarm was randomly going off! Last night it started again and went off 3 times. Battery is dead now and will barely turn the car over, is it likely to be the power sounder again or just a duff battery, it has been a bit sluggish in the mornings for a few days
    Thanx!

    Sounds like your car battery is shagged.
    That will also cause the power sounder to trigger, when the car battery voltage gets too low the sounder thinks it has been disconnected & goes off.

    thanx for reply, will look at getting new battery today, looks like that halfords ad going on about batteries on the radio has come to bite me! Hopefully can get one cheap enough somewhere!

    Vauxhall is cheaper for batteries than Halfords.
