  1. Stants, be careful when levering the dowels - they suddenly pop-out! One of mine is in the garden somewhere.
  2. Thanks. Where can I get a replacement battery? do I have to order it from somewhere in particular, or can I get one anywhere?
  3. Thanks Greenmamba, I'll remove the siren when my fingers have thawed out! Stants - you need to remove the wiper blades, remember to mark their position, then there are 4 push dowels (2 either side) which need to be levered out. Then you need to go to the engine side of the cowl and gently begin to lever it up as it snaps into position. It's in 3 parts - 2 end caps and the large centre piece.
  4. Hi, I've removed the cowling and located the alarm, but can't see where the battery is located. I've attached a picture. Thanks.
  5. Thanks Greenmamba, I understand, but worth a try anyway. I'll check the tailgate again as that's always been a problem lock - sometimes it unlocks and sometimes it doesn't. Gregolasos - it is an old battery and has run flat before, although it didn't set the alarm off that time. May be a combination of this and the alarm battery going flat as well. I'll try it before taking the cowel apart. Thanks guys.
  6. Thanks for the info. I checked the contacts on the door and bonnet and they click in/out OK - non on the tail. Do you think that a dead battery is causing the problem? I'll have a go at reaching it when it's a tad warmer. Tried today, but it's the feeling in my fingers after 5 minutes. Thanks again.
  7. Hi Greenmamba, Many thanks, for the manual, but I managed to find my copy before posting and there is nothing in there that covers my problem - the fault it covers is when the alarm sounds without a problem and the car is locked and armed. My alarm goes off when unlocked and unarmed for no-apparent reason. Is it easy to get to the battery? Can I just disconnect the damn thing? Thanks again.
  8. Hi, I wonder if anyone on the forum can help me with a problem I'm having with my 2004 Forester It has a Category 1 alarm installed with the keypad in the pull-out tray near the bonnet release. I only use the car to transport my dogs about or when the weather is bad, and so I never lock it as I may not use it for a couple of weeks and the battery flattens. Unfortunately, as of last weekend the alarm will trigger for no-reason. The alarm should not even be on, as it's unlocked, and even depressing the remote will not turn it off. In fact the only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery. I've tried all the suggestions I can find including putting the alarm into valet mode, but within 10 minutes it triggers again. I'm at my wits end with the thing and have to leave the battery disconnected until I want to use the car. Is there anyway I can disconnect the alarm, even if it's only while the car is parked until I need to use it again, as I live out in the sticks and never lock it. Can I reset it at all, or disconnect it permenantly? Many thanks,
