    hey all
    the the manual it says that there should be a red flashing LED on the dash saying when your alarms on
    but i dont have that... does that mean my alarm isnt working as i have no idea how to test it?

    If you look directly up the middle of your bonnet it's there in the middle of your dash at the the bottom of your window you won't notice it during the day check it at night

    The Alarm LED is in one of the small squarish domes that are either side of the centre speaker grill on the top of the dash, the other one is the sunlight sensor for the climate control.

    Once the system is armed this should flash, but it isn't that bright.

    Arm the alarm when sitting inside the car, give it a min or so then start waving your arms around! Hopefully the alarm will sound.
