Following on from a few posts by me, and jr while i was on holiday the A3 is now working again. The problem causing it not to start was indeed the clifford alarm. There was supposed to be 2 wires going to the fuel pump however the person who originally fitted it was a muppet and had only connected one, causing intermittent problems which gradually got worse over time. They also had completely botched the bonnet and door sensors and were too lazy to even connect it up to the indicators and did it to the headlights instead. The Gap security bloke was superb and went through everything that was wrong, ripped out the old alarm and fitted a new Concept 650 with a new little toy, a nice turbo timer All is good, im a happy man now for the time being


Big thumbs up to gap security for awesome service and help

Stuart what was the name of the person who installed your alarm iniatally and also the name of the gap security guy who fixed it? Reason being, the first one sounds like a problem I had with my alarm that was installed by someone local and also I am currently waiting for gap to come and fit an alarm today. Also how much did you pay?

erm, you may well have the same bloke that we did then mate as you aint too far from us. We paid just over 540 quid as we had the turbo timer and the cash charge of removing the old alarm.

its part of the clifford, you can lock the doors but as far as i know it wont arm until the engine has switched off. You cant unlock the doors though while the engine is running, and if you manually do it with the keys the engine shuts off.

Indeed, 'tis like smoking crack - once you pop, you can't stop

She's noisier than before, and i'm just scared about the potentially long walk home every time I take the old banger out

BTW, if security guy realy is great, I will have to get details from you, as I need someone super trustworthy and reliable to do me a new install
