    Alarm question time

    Forum Key Rings
    Afternoon everybody

    I've had a couple of nights of broken sleep due to the damn alarm going off so i tried switching the interior sensors off to eliminate these as the cause and (yay!) it seems to have stopped the random activations so am fairly happy that the motion sensors are the problem. The indicators were going off too so i didn't think it was the power sounder.

    My local dealer quoted 85 quid for replacement sensors and until i can get some I was wondering if it's feasible to just put some tape or something over them because i just know i'm going to forget to hit the button to switch them off before long.

    All help gratefully recieved

    Cheers

    Andy

    I donít understand why that would make any difference to the question whether the interior motion sensors can be blanked off?

    Estate ones got another sensors built in the little triangle side windows, along with the antenna, and they are at fault of alarm going off very often as well.

    Ok but how does that make a difference to whether the sensors can be blanked off?
