i didnt know i had an alarm until i read this. After you have locked it and you open the bonnet the alarm goes off. Open the boot - NOTHING.

Ok. i followed the instructions!

All the doors and boot beeped.

 

I looked all my doors holding it anti clock wise then locking it.. opened the bonnet and pressed the pressure thing stupidly.. and the alarm went off.

 

 

Humm ablest i know it works. just not when you open the boots :roll:

ok another way to test the boot is to open the boot, lock the car wait 10 seconds and then shut the boot and the same time as shutting the boot the red LED under the clock should flash once, if it does the then boot pin works that activated the alarm if it don't then the boot pin could be fecked.

 

ALSO

 

Unlock the boot, but don't lift it open, then lock the car, wait 10 sec's the lift the boot open, it should set the alarm off

Yeah the boot will work you just have to "force" entry (ooeerr)

But that means as above opening the boot with means other than a key :)

As for double locking do you have it or not you never gave the results ;)

if double locked the only way the door can be unlocked is with a key from outside.

it disables the interior handle pulls.

 

With regard to the clock led flashing dont take that as gospel ;)

Mine only operates for 3 seconds when ignition is turned on to show no fault.

Doesnt flash at any other time including when self armed.

but the whole system works exactly as it should.

Ford alarms are useless on escort IMO, as bro had one on his GTi, window got smashed lots of things nicked and no alarm sounds. IMO you need an alarm to go off in that situation, as thats one of the most common problems

why are they? they do what their supposed to do stop the car being stolen. if you want more you buy more.. but even then its a waste of time .. how many car alarms do you hear going off in a shopping car park and not one person is interested :rolleyes:

nd the oldest rule in the book ......

 

Dont leave valuables in plain sight and anything nickable leave in the boot area :thumb:

 

How many thieves smash a window on a car that is old and looks like it has nowt in ?

Especially one that any thief knows they cant nick as it has an immobilser built into it.

I reckon its a good alarm and antitheft system for saying its factory installed...

The Immobiliser is meant to prevent it being stolen. The alarm is the deterent, as i say IMO its a waste of time an alarm that doesn't go off when eg a window is broken and therefore doesn't do what IMO its meant to do, is a waste of time. And if one is going of i'm interested! :rolleyes:
