Thanks all , the garage is coming around to the fact that there is an alarm and perhaps the fuse has gone or not plugged in, in the new GEM.

The alarm was going off just after midnight and I unlocked the car and put the key in the ignition to stop it, this continued for another hour so I disconnected the battery. The battery was re-connected at 5pm the next day to get it to my local garage. i think they disconnected it again as the part was not in stock with Ford. About 4 days later the new ECU was fitted. I did read somewhere on the net about manually re-setting the alarm. I think it said set the alarm, unlock with the key instead of the fob, put key in ignition, disconnect battery and re-connect and that should sort it. Anyone tried this. The alarm is a buzzer rather than the horn.

If it would only work then of course I would know where it was , the car also has the surround alarm with a deactivation switch on the drivers door. I think this is where other models have a internal boot release but the Ghia has no such simple function apart from using the remote key. it is a mystery which could have a simple answer. The battery was disconnected for a couple of days to stop the alarm going off when it was awaiting the part. This may have a bearing on why it does not work now but I would have thought fitting the new electronic brainbox to the car would have sorted it.

Mine makes a sound like a burglar/smoke alarm rather than a horn beep but I know what you mean. I did ask them to contact Ford to find out and they said they really need a wiring diagram , not something they give out with the service book though

Thanks
