Hi guys, the wife and i have owned our 2004 streetka winter edition for three weeks now and have had our fair share of problems already, thermostat, heater valve, O2 sensor, overheating, the usual problems. We now have a problem with the alarm going off, it has been to my local ford dealer to be looked at and i was told the actual alarm module is faulty, that is gonna cost £220 + vat and fitting. Having read most of the other posts on similar problems i am reluctant to have the alarm replaced just so it can go again a year or 2 down the line and need replacing again. My local dealer said having the factory alarm removed was an option and wasnt a difficult job however i would lose my remote boot release and remote central locking, now we can quite happily live with that so its not waking us and the neighbours up at 2am.
I was wondering if anyone else has had the factory alarm removed from a streetka and if it has caused problems elsewhere ??
