There seems to be loads of repeated threads on alarms but no FAQs so thought I'd try and match up the advice. Where possible I've linked up other FAQ's to help you find them.

What's covered in this FAQ?

1. Types of alarm problem
2. What sensers the car has
3. How to check if its the Ultrasonics
4. Aftermarket alarm fault codes
5. Part numbers for sirens and ultrasonics
6. Locking and unlocking with alarm and key fob problems
7. LED on with car running

The two types of problem alarm

Alarm + no flashing lights

Knackered siren / siren battery

Alarm with flashing lights

Knackered siren/siren battery
Hyperactive ultrasonics
Problem shut sensors
Voltage drop (main battery)
Voltage drop (siren battery)

Other basic info

Alarm, sensors and what it detects

Ultrasonics = movement in car (can be disabled)

Door sensors
Bonnet sensor
Boot sensor
Voltage drop/tampering with main or alarm battery


First thing I'd check - Ultrasonics

If you have a hyperactive alarm then try setting it with the ULTRASONICS disabled. If it stops going off at random then chances are your ultrasonics are knackered.

To test if they're working then you can set the alarm with the window open, then wave your hand round inside after a minute and it should trigger the alarm, if not your ultrasonics are also knackered (but in a different way)!

The way for setting the alarm with no ultrasonics is set out at post # below.

The part number for the sensers is at post 3 below.

LED Flash Rates and Fault Diagnosis, AFTERMARKET ALARM

Firstly thanks to thugpuggin who found this.

Original thread title was phase2/3 led flash slightly different and its somewhere on page 1.

This information relates to the aftermarket (accessory) alarm fitted to other pugs

The aftermarket alarm is a 96731V Defender 3.1 Alarm. Whether this is the same model number as standard I don't know.

LED Function

Flashing Quickly - System armed - perimeter protected
Flashing Slowly - System armed - perimeter & interior protected
2 Flashes after disarm - Interior Intrusion (ultrasonic sensors)
3 Flashes after disarm - Door opening intrusion
5 Flashes after disarm - Boot/tailgate opening intrusion
6 Flashes after disarm - Bonnet opening intrusion
7 Flashes after disarm - Ignition interference intrusion
8 Flashes after disarm - Additional sensor input detected

In addition, the LED can be used to recall the alarm trigger memory by arming and disarming the system quickly - the LED will display the cause of the last trigger.

LOCKING AND UNLOCKING WITH ALARM PROBLEMS

Locking without setting interior sensors

If your ultrasonics are knackered then you can lock with the exterior and V-drop sensors only.

Press and hold the little alarm button on the steering column until the LED goes solid (not blinking) red and then lock as usual.

Unlock with fob

Deadlocking, no alarm

Turn key in drivers door and hold until you hear a second locking sound. This sets WITHOUT any alarm - ie when you get 100% hacked off with it.

Unlock by fob or key.

Unlocking flat fob battery

Unlock car with key

Within 10 seconds switch key to "Accesory" position and press alarm switch

To change the battery see gnrlee's FAQ

Key battery clicky

LED Stays on while car running and knackered sirens/siren batteries

This is a sign of a knackered / faulty alarm. Most common cause seems to be the alarm syren. There's a FAQ elsewhere for battery replacement.

Note also that there are also cases of a MAIN BATTERY that is failing causing the same symptoms, this is because the alarm batteries charge off the main battery and they are there to back up for main battery disconnection.

This hopefully now covers most of the stuff that isn't in the manuals.

If anyone has any resolved issues and wants to add to it PM me (or Admin) and we'll get this updated with new solutions.

If you can do a short synopsis of the symptons, problem and solution/part numbers in the process that would be Thumbs up
