Hi there

after suffering from a couple of frustrating problems with my factory fitted alarm in a UK spec 1999 SL32, I managed to deactivate it by removing a fuse in the boot and bonnet. However there is now a bleeping sound coming from inside the car which is I guess is a warning that somethings happened to the car. I am wanting to know how to silence this bleeping or if there's another way of deactivating the alarm. I know that others have replaced their factory alarms with other third party devices and have wondered how the original factory unit was bypassed totally.

I am trying to avoid a trip to my Indy garage if its something I can do myself. I will probably look to have another unit fitted sometime but in the meantime just want to silence the audible alarm.

Regards

Stu

The plot thickens. We have just had a heavy down pour which somehow set the alarm off after I thought it was totally deactivated. It looks like the ultrasonics still work but opening the door manually using the key doesnt trigger it. I am kind of at my wits end with this thing.

If anyone knows how to remove, bypass or totally deactivate this wretched alarm system I would be most greatfull for the help.

I've no idea about your car's alarm, but would be very surprised if you could deactivate a factory alarm simply by pulling a fuse ......... wouldn't be a very good alarm if you could & it would take Johnny Toerags & his mates long to suss that one out.

Would an open forum tell you how to by-pass it? :rolleyes::rolleyes:
