    Ignition on, then ignition off and take the negative off within 10 seconds (I think)
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    In my manual it says ignition on, then turn off and disc batt within 10 second....


    ...but it never works!!!

    I feel the power sounder is a waste of time and somewhere on here i'm sure i saw that someone had pulled there out and do'nt have any bother with it now.

    Anyone?

    I used the vauxhall recomended method on my car with no issues

    The power sounder is there to make the alarm cat 1 insurance approved so if you remove it you need to tell your insurance company

    Think my power sounder has been faulty since I bought the car new. Never been able to take the battery off without the sounder going off. Changed the sounder recently for another one and now I can disconnect without it going off by simply putting the ign on and whipping the neg off
