One of my friends has a zafira with a faulty alarm.
From what I can gather it could be a fault the battery or with the sounder or siren.
I need to check with him whether he can hear any beeping when turning the ignition off as I believe this would indicate the sounder.
Is it located towards the rear of the drivers (os) or passengers (ns) wheel arch?
I know the internal batteries can be replaced (if they haven't leaked and wrecked the board) but I would like a bit of advice before having a go.
I believe it can be removed by leaving the ignition on as you disconnect it - if on removal it looks wrecked can the ignition simply be turned off and the car driven as usual without it?
If we decide to try and fit new batteries or get another unit at a later date, can we just turn the ignition on before connecting it back up and get it working again?
The last thing I want to do is immobilise the car and have it end up at the dealer.
Any advice appreciated.
edit. sorry this might need moving to Ice & Security as I seem to have posted in the wrong place.
