Edit: just phoned the strikalite company, super helpful! even shouted at his wife to turn the hoover off so he could hear me Big grin
Hmmm.. My effort failed so I'll open it back up, have a look and take some pics Smile

*edit* lol I just opened mine up again and 2 of the wires I had "soldered" had come undone again. The only thing I can see exposed on that side of mine is a black (i think) electrolytic capacitor Unsure To be honest I didnt remove much sealant

I'm going to have a gander at mine as well! It's probably best to give the new batteries a good charge before the unit goes back on the car as well. Same with all rechargeable batteries I would have thought Unsure

If anybody does remove theirs could they have a quick look please, I am prepered to begSad
if you were to gingerely remove small slithers of the silicone with a very sharp blade should be safeWhistle it is probably about 5mm under the surface of the silicone


Edit: never mind just worked it out, one of the three legs had broken off, so worked out its orientation from that.
if anybody else does the same thing (easily done honestly Whistle) I've ordered 4 so will have a few spare, unless my soldering skills are shite

Can't imagine that would help if the batteries only last a few years, mine had leaked all over the shop!

I thought that, as surely the car would have to charge it for a while and I didnt want to leave it in broken to go off again but I dont really know how to do this. I mean I have chargers but is it safe to just drop these cells in?

Put the siren back in and it makes funny quiet squwacking noise when you arm the alarm as the indicators flashUnsure
see what happens tomorrow when the batteries are charged.

The alarm and immobiliser are seperate circuits aren't they? It shouldn't affect the car starting. Is the main battery dead?

I thought the alarm had a relay where which will stopped the car from starting if the alarm is going off.

Well my mate at work who is good at soldering did mine for me today - he said where I snapped the old battery out I left virtually nothing to solder on to Shock


I assume this is charged by the alternator so I'll put mine back in tonight and go for a long drive before I start messing with the alarm Unsure

When did your siren go off by the way? Was it when you went to use the car or just randomly?

Too dark last night but stuck it on this morning, went for a 30 min drive, got home, locked the car and was disappointed to hear no "plip" (I think I read somewhere its supposed to)

However when I locked the car with the fob and opened with the key (sure way to set off the alarm) I have a siren as well as lights!

I'll just have to see if there is any odd behaviour over the next week but looks like you saved me a load of cash there CTD.

My ultrasonics still need to be disarmed every time but that might just need some hair lacquer sprayed on em Big grin

This should be in the FAQ section I reckon.

OK I spoke too soon - alarm siren went off on its own, no lights flashing just wailing, couldnt turn it off with fob or alarm button on steering column, disconnected the battery and it went off immediately.

It could be that it doesnthave enough charge in it, but to be honest I have had enough of it now Sad

the car isn't supposed to make any noise when you arm or disarm it mate Wink

they're silent, until they go off that is hehe.

alarm is silent when armin/disarming. Yes

alarm going off on it's own, no lights or anything is a problem with the siren. it could be down to the batteries dying or it could be something else if the weather and battery acid has had a go at it. Sad

This fix just hppened to work for me Big grin
