Poxy alarm help pls guys

Post by Yetiman25 » Wed Oct 14, 2020 6:56 pm

So alarm just went off twice for no apparent reason. Can i tell from flashes on diode what it is ie door or ultrasonics? And does the alarm work on side doors via the push contacts?

First time i opened all doors and tailgate closed then rearmed went straight off. 2nd time did same again and bonnet as that was up earlier but it had been armed for ages.

Cheers in advance guys

I had this once because of the slightly oxidised sliding door contacts. Easy to check, if you have some oxidation marks on them that probably be it. Just need to clean them.
The other common failure is the rear door bottom latch, if you have a barn door. It has built in switch and is prone to some moisture ingress.

Cheers giddy. Tailgate so hopefully one less poss issue. Just checked and contacts look clean as whistle. Only 2 1/2 years old anyway. Cleaned them just in case.
