    Re: arggggg! A3T alarm problems :(

    can't find one at the moment - if ya follow your front seatblets down the pillar - you'll see the switch - just a little square button, half way down the pillar or so.

    Re: arggggg! A3T alarm problems :(

    Haris,
    Its not hard to find maybe you haven't got it. It is on the drivers seat belt pillar its a small square button. I'm pretty sure though its only to disable the internal sensors for the alarm and shouldn't affect your flashing LED's on the door buttons.
    Doesn't on the A4 anyway.

    hmmmmmmmm - I wonder why not? ask them why it doesn't have it or where it should be! tell them you know it should have something like that button (maybe then they will not try and rip you off!!!)

    ur welcome for the help bud - anytime!

    good luck!

    Hey Haris,

    I'd be really grateful if you could post metioning what the dealer said they'd done to the car to sort it out?

    I've got a pretty similar alarm problem at the moment (HERE) but I'm physically unable to get it to a dealer any time soon [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I hope you get it all sorted without too much stress! I'll be sure to let you know if I figure something out on mine which might help you.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Hey,

    Yeah sure i will..altough i do not think i would take it to an Audi dealer cuz of 2 reason....1 they charge way too much...2 i did not buy my car at an audi dealer...i will however try to ask at a few different places...maybe even visit the dealer who knows...as soon as i have figured whats wrong i will let you know!

    Re: arggggg! A3T alarm problems :(

    The button on the b pillar is only for disabling the interior sensors. You press this if you want to leave your windows open or leave children and animals in the car.

    When you lock the doors after pressing the button, the alarm still works on the doors, bonnet, boot etc.

    If you don't have this button and you have never noticed the LEDs flashing before, then I suspect that you don't have the Audi alarm fitted at all.
