    S3 Alarm Problem, but not the batteries!

    Hi all,

    My Alarm is playing up. I arm it, the LED's don’t flash immediately, then flash rapidly, then go to standard blink, (every second or so). I walk away and about an hour and a half later, BEEP BEEP BEEP (I don’t know why I put that in capitals (beep beep beep more like! ) I took it to my mate who works for VW, he plugged it in and it says Terminal 30 not present for 3 of the 4 last activations. His recons that terminal 30 is the permanent live to the alarm.

    Any one knows anything about anything? Where would Terminal 30 be? Could it be a fuse in line with terminal 30?

    Unfortunately my mate is now away for weekend and I am back to work Monday. (He thought the Alarm would be in the same place as Golf, so I took half my engine bay to bits to find it’s in the Boot )

    Any help massively appreciated,

    Ta

    Not sure myself bt I had a similar problem and turned out to be the Bonnet sensor that was faulty so the car kept thinking that the bonnet was open and trigerring the alarm.
