    My avants alarm has just started randomly going off on its own when its locked,when I press open on the remote it doesn't stop it everytime and keeps beeping.the beep is coming from the rear right side behind the trim near the speaker.......Any ideas why?

    Ive checked the 2 buttons in the door pad pocket but could it be anything to do with the wife hoovering it out today?

    Battries have failed. U can unplug the alarm from behind the sub,if u can get to it.
    And you can check,change the battries over.
    Theres a "how to" i think, or its covered in the forum.

    there is a mod you can do to it so it accepts batteries from maplins. do a search on that. mine failed a while back and I took it out to do the mod but haven't got around to it yet.

    Before you go pulling the thing apart, tighten the vehicle battery terminals. Worked for me.
