The anti-theft alarm keeps coming on after the car has been parked and locked. How can I deactivate it. I have double checked evrything is properly closed and locked. It has been an intermittent fault in the past few weeks but appears permanent now and the car has to be left unlocked to avoid causing a nuisance to our neighbours. We cannot leave it unlocked in a public place under any circumstances.


you can leave it unlocked,as the immobiliser will take care of any potential thief, as if you dont have the actual key,you cannot start the car.the key is coded to the actual car and can never be duplicated.as far as the alarm is concerned,try this,put the key into the drivers door and unlock/hold the key over for 30 secs,the windows will go down,then lock/hold the key over,the windows will go up.wait 30 secs,then press/hold the unlock button on the remote for 30 secs,you have just reset the immobiliser......
