  1. Probably a simple answer, but my car alarm keeps going off for no reason.any ideas?
  2. The further adventures of my beloved cmax! Managed to tow start the car, ran it for a while, but once i switched off the ignition, car didnt evrn turn over. It was suggested that it could be the startet motor, which was checked, snd was faulty. I purchased a new starter fitted it, but still nothing. I have suggested s possible prob with the immobilisor, which as far as i am aware is factory fitted, but was advised that the immobilisor cuts the power and the fuel, and as i was able to tow staet the car, the immobilisor must functioning correctly. Can anyone advise ar all?
  3. Comments noted. However if it was the battery drained too low, surely i would not be able to have the lights haz stereo air running as normal
  4. None at all. It can go weeks before i need to jump start the car. The battery is fully charged, i have all lights on, the air con running haz lights going, and yhr stereo on, electric windows opening and closing at the same time, this is why i suspect the car alarm. I will have to get the alternator tested, but how do i do that ehrn i cant start the car lol
  5. For a few months i have had sporadic startung issues dut to a,low battery output, but once the car is jumped, it starts straight away. I have removed the battery, recharges it and that seemed to rectify the probs,until friday night when the alarm kept on going off. The following morning ehen i tried to start the car, nothing. It did not even turn over at all. I recharged the battery again and again it still woukd not turn over. This morning i tried to jump start the car but this,time nothing, its as if the electrics have been cut out fron the electics. Can anyone advise on this,problem and advise possible remedies?
