In Topic: Using The Spare Key When Alarm Is On

03 September 2014 - 07:18 AM

Got it solved. Maybe the UK cars have different alarm systems.
Here in Estonia the cars came with the SPAL alarm, and the usermanual for this alarm had the instructions how to turn it off without the remote buttons on the key. So got the alarm disabled and I'm able to drive round town and go to the dealer to get a new key.

Cheers for the help!

Just tried it.
Doors opened with the secondary key and the engine started without any problems. But the alarm still was on. It stopped after 30seconds and as soon as I moved in the car, the sensors picked that up and the alarm started again. So looks like the backup key doesn't disable the alarm for some reason.

Seems like I need to dig into the manuals then...

Great, thanks for the replies. I'll try to get the key in the ignition and turning asap after unlocking the doors then.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply! I bought new tyres just last year, so I'll skip those I think. Especially, cause my yearly milage is fairly low and during winter I use winter tyres. So the summer tires have barely been used.
I've booked a servicing at the end of May - hopefully everything will go smoothly then.

@ben1191 - not sure what that it... :)
