    Also, just ran a thing which checks any power going to cable. None going to the cable connected to the siren.

    Right, your alarm module is the one right at the top and the the thick black cable is sleeving the four wires inside. Did you follow it through till the plug?

    And did you remember to trigger the alarm when checking for voltage?

    I found it. From the thick wire, theres a white connector at the other end, connected to nothing? Yeah I did trigger the alarm.

    That 4 pin white connector needs to be connected to another plug which carries the power to your siren. You'll need to do abit more digging

    Glad we could help

    Have a look behind the centre console bit where the cig lighter goes to see if you have a microwave sensor.

    Ok, maybe not sorted?

    All fine today etc.

    Got home from work, accidentally locked it with window down. The indicators flashed and the alarm was 'clicking', not actually going off how it should. Was not locking probably, after I done the window up I couldn't just lock it, the alarm kept going off.

    Anyway, was weird, so I got in it. Took it for a quick 2 min spin round the block, now it seems to lock ok. But the noise it made when I lock/unlock it, isnt as noise. It's just like the click?
