    car alarm has been keep going off within 30 seconds of the car being alarmed.


    ive read that the siren is to blame, with the batteries leaking over the module inside.



    ive removed the Siren, however the alarm is still going off (well, hazards flashing)


    even if my Siren barreries are damaged. and leaked over the board inside, why is the alarm/hazards still flashing?


    must be something else then i take?

    how can i diactivate this, as the hazards continue to flash until i disarm with the fob?

    i assume you have a faulty door switch triggering the alarm, scan it for codes and it will tell you what triggered it.

    Alarm itself is part of the CL pump

    ok, i dont have vagcom,

    the central locking pump i asume you mean yea?

    thats the larger white unit the same place?

    do i need to split that to see if batteries/board are damaged?

    or no point as ive removed the siren?


    Also,

    when i open the passanger door, the dashboard warning light tells me that the drivers door is open, not the passanger side.

    this give any clues?

    no batteries in CL pump, it controls the locks, windows and alarm, if you remove it none of the aforementioned stuff will work. Borrow or buy vagcom to scan and see, at this point we are just guessing. But i bet your inerior light fails to work when you open one of the doors/boot atm

    Lude how did you get on with this? I have the same alarm issue and I think my alarm will still activate with the siren removed (thus drained battery)

    where are the door sensors, can they be removed and cleaned/replaced?

    thanks

    Looks like you need a scann with vcds, if the alarm has beet triggered it will tell you whats set it off,
    Ultrasonic s, doors, boot, etc.
