Sodding alarm
« on: 24 September 2017, 18:52:40 »

I,ve had my Desmond for over 4 years and had no problems with the alarm. Over the last few days the alarm goes of around 11pm. The neighbours must love me. ;D. It doesn,t do it every night either. I,ve only ever locked it by pressing the fob once so would pressing it twice help?
I,ve Please read the manual :D and don,t find it very clear for my poor old addled brain. Any ideas anyone?

Do you still have the power sounder connected up ? Maybee try it with it disconnected as a first test . Then for quietness maybee unplug the alarm horn next to it so as at least not disturb the neighbours.have you checked the bonnet switch for good connection and operation? .also  what happens if you set alarm with internal sensors disabled ?

I would unplug alarm horn then ( for quietness sake ! ) temporarily .lights will still flash . Then check bonnet switch. I doubt it would be a problem on an omega but worth making sure boot light is going on and off properly and interior lights/ door switches etc. Or maybee confirm by pulling relevant fuse . Not sure if that will affect other things thou.not got my car here at mo to check in book. Maybee check door pillar switches for shorts or water imgress .they are a dual switch so a short may allow a small current through ? . .?

No doubt someone else will come along with some suggestions to try but bonnet switch and door switches are a good place to start. My brothers car had a problem with water in a door switch making it go green and intermittent operation

Unplug it and see what happens... or hopefully doesn't.

You could a always lock it from the rear passenger door while you work out what is wrong, at least that way you won't annoy the neighbours.

If no power sounder, unplug bonnet switch to prove.

If that cures issue, either leave like that, or tweak the bracket so the switch works properly.
