    Car alarm playing up!!!

    Hi guys I got a 52 astra 1.8 sri and whats bothering lately is the alarm. Once i double lock using the key fob at times the alarm would go off. Not all the time but sometimes. I read that it might be the powersounder but this does not happen all the time and also if I just lock it once with the keyfob then its ok, not alarms go off. I think it might be the powersounder coming to its death soon, what do you guys think?

    If there seems to be a pattern, try putting tape over the interior sensors, also make sure each door/boot/bonnet closes properly.

    If it seems random, most likely the powersounder is fkd. The boards inside these get temperemental with age. I've just chucked mine out for the same reason!
