Alarm and the use of the indicators
« on: 15 August 2006, 16:47:00 »

Now not sure if there is any truth to it but I was told a little while ago that if the indicators flash when you lock and unlock the ECU is configured for Germany which is illegal in this country and would need changing using Tech2.

My car does the above, where as the Black omega I have the indicators dont flash when locking or unlocking.

I personally am not bothered whether they flash or not.

Has anyone ever heard of this before?

Feel free to move if in the wrong place :)

Been looking online and have not been able to find anything so probably safe to say its ok to have them flash.

Was curious as to whether anyone else had heard of this before.

Erm doesn't practically every car out there flash the indicators with remote alarms?:)  Just why would it be illegal anyway?  Someones pulling your leg.

Maybe, the guy who told me runs his own garage and happened to mention it although he did seem 100% sure on this.

The black omega I have the flashers dont flash when locking and unlocking but mine does, I guess there must be some kind of reason for this.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I would've said you had a problem with the black meega if it ain't flashing.

The flash is there for confirmation of the command you have sent. If you didn't have the flash you'd be left listening for the central locking activating so you'd know if it's worked, which is, well, nonsense.

Is he not perhaps trying to fleece you out of your hard earned dosh for correcting a non existent problem with Tech2?  :-?

To be honest it was mentioned through general chat as it was the same guy I bought my seats from.

I see where your coming from but this guy hasn't seen my black omega and it doesnt need tech2 putting on it as far as I know, he doesn't seem the type to rip people off either.

With regards a fault with the flashers when locking/unlocking does anyone have any suggestions.  :)

I know, that's not what i was meaning, i wasn't refering to the black mig.

He does however want to put your other meega (not the black one) on tech2 to make it 'a little less German', cos it's illegal here. (Says he)  ::)

With regards to the black meega, do the indicators flash when the alarm is triggered?
