Hi

Still waiting for new Fiesta delivery.

I notice on page 36 of the driverís handbook mention of a car alarm. I do not know which alarm is being referred to. There is no mention of an alarm in the Fiesta colour brochure. Any clues anybody?

Standard fit perimeter alarm on the Zetec S and Titanium models. See page 21 and 23 of brochure. :)

Anyway of turning the alarm off as no one pays any attention to them and as mine will be parked away from the house I am not going to hear it and it will only annoy the neighbours!

It's an alarm that sounds if someone:

* Tries to remove the stereo
* Opens a locked door
* Opens the boot or forces the bonnet open
* Tries to start the engine without a valid key

It doesn't seem to:

* Have any volumetric sensing
* Detect a window being smashed
* Have any method to disable it
* Tell you much about it in the manual

So in short, it's pretty much totally useless. If you live in a really shady area and you're worried about that sorta thing then fitting a REAL alarm might be an idea.

I've just fitted some prominent "Alarm Fitted!" stickers which I bought from my local car spares, plus a red flashing LED on the steering column shroud which can be switched on with a hidden switch mounted behind the console. So although my Mk7 Titanium has the (useless) standard Ford alarm, it now looks as if it's got an expensive aftermarket one - all for less than £10.
