Hi Everyone,

I have had the car a week now and am loving it. Its had a few teething problems but only stuff i would expect from a second hand car. But there is one thing that is really starting to get on my nerves now. The alarm keeps going off.

The first time it happened i was taking pictures of it, but didn't take much notice. Then two days later it happened at the pub, and its been getting more and more. Then tonight i had it parked while i was get food and it went off 5 times within 10 minutes, then i drove to the petrol station and it went off again. Has anyone else had this sort of problem.

Lots of people keep telling me that sometimes its a spider in the car spinning a web by the sensors. I guess that would explain why its always at night. So i guess what i need to know is where are the sensors? Haha.

Also, i don't really want to do this, but how do you turn the alarm off. I cant have it going off all night.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

Harry

I remember Christine telling me at MINI UNITED

If you hold down the unlock button it changes the sensitivity of the alarm

Not 100% sure to be fair

Yeh read this about Sapphie but yet to know if act works guess ill find out when I start using my sunroof again & may only b lci models I'm not sure but It said about locking twice is meant to b less sensitive.

May b worth a try

Think there just temperamental mini alarms as both mine sometimes never go off or keep doing it!!

If you press the lock button twice, then that disables the internal sensors Smile

No probs Smile

I'm trying to think where the internal sensors are, I think they must be at the front, where the toggle switches are above the rear view mirror

That would make sense. And i seem to have a funny rattle in there. Will speak to mini and see what they say.

They are in this area and I'm betting that is the problem, if you have handsfree the mic is also up there as mine came adrift ........
