Stardard alarm?

Ok, for those with Haynes manuals, please turn to page REF.5 and look under the sub-heading 'Disconnecting The Battery'.

It talks about a 'factory option alarm system'. I have this box next to the ECU, and the key. Thing is, i never knew this came with the car, so basically, i have that box, and another 'gemini' alarm system, fitted by the previous owner, which includes remote central locking, interior, and tilt sensors. Unfortunately, i had alot of trouble with this, as it kept going off whenever the wind blew, so used this special key to turn the alarm off for good.

However, now i've read this, could my newer alarm be interfering with the stock unit? Could that be why it was over sensitive? Put it this way, even with the alarm turned off via the remote, it would still go off when it wanted, so i had no choice but to use the key (which i thought came with the gemini alarm)

Anyone got any info on this standard alarm system?

Another day...another problem...

I know what it is...its the 'reliable' switch. Ours must be removed but basically if you turn the key, the box kicks in and your car stays reliable forever. It was fitted to all Cinq's as standard but some were taken off as Fiat thought people would like the challenge and the gamble of whether their car would start in the morning. Just turn the key and say the magic words 'abracadabra' and al should be well.

Think it was a dealer fit option. It's mentioned in the cinq handbook too.

Re: Stardard alarm?

Oké it's an old topic but I have this box to....uhmmm There should be a box. I have the connectors under the ECU and in the manual there should be a box with (key)switch. There are 2 connectors. 1 big and 1 small. 1 has a lot of black wires.

I have a CL system but it doesn't work from a distance and I measured all wires in the roof sensor and all are oke but one goes to the connector.

The connector had a black cap with bridge connectors in it. If I remove this cap the car won't start and the codelight goes on.

When I bought the car in germany and imported it to holland the (opel/vauxhaul) dealer in germany said something was wrong with the doorlocks and the locks were changed. And he said that this was the reason the CL doesn't work from a distance.

The roofsensor reacts on the key when I programm the code.
I have 2 blue keys with a button and a red key.
And under the bonnet and rear are little pressure switches for the alarmsystem I think.

But the don't know the system in holland

Re: Stardard alarm?

Hi,

I have the right unit and it's in my car but after trying to give my key codes it does nothing.

Is there a english manual for programming the roof sensor or something to get it work again by deleting the old codes or something like that.
