    Hi,
    wonder if anyone can help as i am not mechanically minded, my alarm has never worked indicated by the red light under the interior mirror has never flashed so got a mate with a delphi ds500 diagnostic tool to check for any fault codes- here are the results with descriptions;
    multifunction (central body zke3)
    148 led for burglar alarm, open circuit
    146 tilt sensor
    149 burglar alarm system passenger compartment sensor

    instrument panel
    11 interference in egs signal or egs program
    32 brake fluid level
    6 can communication
    18 acoustic signal (gong t3)
    i will check fluid level + don't know if relevant but radio will not power up and i've checked fuses!
    Any help/ info as to what is causing the above codes would be most welcome- thanks in advance guys
    cheers
    gazali

    I know you say you've checked fuses, but just in case you missed these, check F11, F38, F48.
    I would have thought the LED would flash if there was a fault, but I'm not certain, so check the fuses in case it's a power problem.
    Worth having a look at the tilt sensor and the interior protection unit just for anything obvious connections etc.
    If the diagrams I have tie up with what you have in your car then these are the locations.

    Thanks to Mr Gildersol, i checked the fuses you mentioned and guess what? No 48 was missing so put a 5amp in and the alarm is activated with the said red strobe now flashing!!! Really appreciate your advice thanks again

    So now you just have to hope there was not an alarm problem that prompted the previous owner to remove the fuse.....

    Absolutely, I wonder why it was missing

    Still, in the meantime, glad it's fixed
