Midas Stlying the company that kitted my car up....
Been trying to get hold of them for about 3months now and today i finally got an answer when i rang up!!

When i rang i asked for Matt, the guy i had been dealing with, the women on the other end says "Matt no longer works here, he left at the begining of june"

I was shocked - this was just after all the problems with my car - mmm strange!!
Anyways i explained to her what the problem was and that i needed it fixing and when i was down there last was told it wouldnt cost me anything and to expect a call by the end off the week (the call never happened and its never been fixed)
She said she would get Rich (boss) to ring me back when he gets in

Sooo fingers crossed he rings me back asap - bloody need this alarm fixed im fed up of jump starting the car, or not being able to leave it for a few hours as im scared the alarm will just start beeping and deadening the battery

!!! FINGERS CROSSED !!!

When i go to bed say 11pm, i wont be getting up untill 7am so that means that im not keeping an eye on the car for 8hours

Say it starts beeping at 2am that gives its 5hours beeping until i get up - by this time the battery is dead and i have to find someone to jump start me

The stupid thing is that it will beep whether the alarm is set or not, and whether the car is locked or not - strange!!!

If thats the case why not get another battery on stand by fully charged and keep swapping them over when needed.

Maybe a little less pain in the back side.

What alarm is it? midas fitted it i take it - lol

^^ yeah but thats not the point mate..... shouldnt be this problem - been promised for months that it would be fixed!!!

Cant blame midas (Rich) as he maybe didnt know about it as i was dealing with Matt - however Rich did meet me and i would have asumed matt would have told him the problem - maybe not though??

Just hope i can get it sorted and its not another 3months before i get hold of them!!

Im not bothered about paying to get down there and back... i just want this fixed for Free

When i was down at Midas last time thery tested it and confirmed it was defo not the battery - they think theres a lose wire thats finding places to 'live' to (something like that )

ive got the toad mp5 and was having problems with the car not starting- it was soley down to the fitter who fitted it to my car he did a crap job and just bundeled wires together - took it to an alarm shop they was asking 300 to redo the whole alarm- so i did it myself took me a good 7 hours but i wired it propperly!!
i would check the earth for the alarm if its not secured properly it will play havoc with these alarms

Well before it was done they said they had a alarm fitter on site!!

But when i went down when i was having the problems we drove somewhere and this guy looked at it and said "the only way to sort it would be to take it all out and start again" (he wasnt the original fitter)

Matt said he would ring me back when he had sorted a date out..... and this is where we are now!!
