You DON'T have to press the button to enable the sensors. They are on by default, pressing the button before exiting the car and arming the alarm inhibts the ultrasonics.

Thats where I am going wrong [smiley=embarassed.gif] [smiley=lolk.gif]

Also, having the towbar removed shouldn't necessarily effect the alarm function, depending on where the connections were made of course.  :o

You have said the indicators and hazard functions are all ok, so i reckon it's unrelated.

The towbar electrics were connected in behind the plastic trim along the backend of the boot.

Then the towbar removal is definately unrelated.

Cheers for clearing that one up :) for some reason I thought it maybe related in some way.

Shall see about doing further testing without pressing the red button see if the powersounder goes off.

As TheBoy already stated, the PowerSounder will only sound if someone has tried to fiddle with the electrics. i.e. disconnecting the battery.  ;)

Sorry Kev gotcha, so alarm is working as it should only remember now the power sounder kicked in when reconnecting the battery once caused a right racket.

I wonder why the flashers dont work when locking and unlocking the car, should I worry about it?

Do you think its worth testing the sensors still?

Test the sensors, see what happens.

I reckon the relay or associated connections that controls the indicators in the ATWS is donald ducked - but I will check if there is any config via tech2 over weekend.

If the alarm has been activated, the indicators will continue to flash even after the alarm has ceased sounding.

After reading all the post on this subject has got me wondering.
My indicators dont flash when I lock or unlock my car. (95 2.5 V6) but my car is also fitted with a after market Meta M36T imobiliser. I wonder if this is the reason for my indicators not flashing.
This is how I bought the car so I hadn't given it any thought before.
You lot have got a lot to answer for. LOL ;D ;D ;D

Right been a while since I last looked at this thread, so I thought I would update a little.

It appears the power sounder goes off when reconnecting the battery, but the internal sensors do jack all.

Am i right to think the horn should go off when the internal sensors are activated.

Tried sitting in the car with windows shut, lock the car the little red light flashes but nought happens if I move about the car. Guessing the sensors are knackered shall swap one from mine to test.

Where abouts would this be located, is it connected to the cars main horn or is it seperate?

The power sounder am I right to think is located under the scuttle on the drivers side.

If I can confirm I am going for the right one I shall make sure its connected.
