haveing had a problem with my alarm i decided to take a look at it. if you read the first thred you will know the alarm went off and would not reset i took off the battery terminal but it carried on due to the back up battery in the siren however this went flat after about 5 mins. i left the battery off over night and re connected the next day all was well however i do not want this to happen again as my wife drives the car as well. today i decided to take the siren out of the back for now till i decide what to do next. had to remove rear deck and O/S rear panel only tools required were 10mm socket and trim tool but a wall paper scraper will do.only problem i had was the tie down hooks and how to remove them so i have put a picture in so YOU know. with the panel off the siren is in the inner wing with the nuts easy to remove from the out side and go up from below the subwoofer and pull it out the cable has a lug on the plug you pull up to release it and there you have it (picture enclosed) IT,S made in italy why ??. so what next i have read there is a way to replace the battery ?. buy new £250 or second hand £25 (how long will it,s battery last) or leave it off bearing in mind i did not pay a lot for this car. i read a thred on google that i found by accident from a honda expert and he did decribe the problem i had to the letter and say it is a very common problem and is nearly allways the back up battery and the only cure it replace or remove and leave off (may affect your insurance IF they found out) this work was all done on the tourer model so the saloon may be different and i do have many more pictures if anyone wishes to see them.
