Alarm/Immobiliser Problems


Recommended Posts

Right, basically I went to my Grans this afternoon and as soon as I turned the key to switch the ignition off the alarm/immobiliser (not sure which one it is) just started going off - while I was in the car and the doors closed.


So I tried turning the ignition back on and the alarm was still going off, and then it stopped after about 30 seconds.


I put the key in again to switch the engine on and it did it again!


Finally I got out of the car, closed the door and did the deadlock thing and that seemed to solve it.


But why the hell did it just go off when I pulled up and switched the engine off in the first place?


I did disconnect the battery on Tuesday (to fit my new seats) and haven't used the car since then. Maybe that's why it happened?

Yea you normally need to put it in vallet mode when disconnecting the battery (as i found out on wed) then once reconnected, take it out of vallet mode. Don't really know what you can do about it now though. Is it a standard alarm?

How do I do that? Yeah, it's the standard Ford alarm.


if its the ford alarm they are prone to this ,just a case or re setting it again

How would I reset it mate?
