Yes all properly closed. This has been happening on a number of occasions over the past few weeks. Sometimes several times in a couple of hours. Then maybe not for a couple of days. At first I thought it was because it is parked in the street and the vibration of a vehicle passing had set it off but it seems too frequent for this.
Yes it is only the original manufacturers alarm fitted.
Hi Greg, thanks, XXXXX XXXXX located the switch (and the alarm ... bear in mind that I am totally clueless about what is under the bonnet!) so I can see what you mean about how it works. When you say "pull the plug on the switch" what exactly do you mean me to disconnect? I can see a wire going into the switch but there isn't an easy way to take that out and I don't want to pull hard and maybe cause damage to the wrong thing. Can you clarify please what I am disconnecting?Many thanks
Hi, thanks I've now figured out how it unplugs and removed the cable from the switch. I'll leave it a few hours to see if the alarm goes off again, if not then that's solved it thank you until I can get a permanent replacement. I'll confirm shortlyGeoff
Hello again, yes this seems to have solved the problem of the alarm going off and now I understand how the system works, thank you.
