    Hi all

    The car alarm went off on my mums car last night which was weird i went straight out there to find her car jacked up with the front wheel off laying on the floor which two ba****ds running down the road with a bag, they left the jack and four breeze blocks behind so hopefully we will have some prints on them !

    I put the wheel back on and ever since the alarm keeps going off. Is it possible they could of damaged a sensor or something not to sure how they work to be honest.

    Thanks

    yeah they got away i phoned the police and they gave me all the usual **** saying we will send somebody round in the morning to get finger prints etc. They did not seem to surprised tho im really annoyed i dont no how they managed to get a locking wheel nut to fit it but i was quite happy the alarm done its job otherwise they might have had the whole set. As for the alarm it still wont go off i think the neighbours are stating to get annoyed.

    what wheels do you have?

    Full blown flood lights and CCTV is what you need. and a Rottweiler.

    I can't believe some of these people!!

    Get some McGard locking nuts on there ASAP. In the meantime, I'd put the car in a garage (if possible) or keep it at a different address. Don't give them chance again until you've got some different locking nuts on there!

    You tried turning the tow sensor off and seeing if that stops the alarm going off? That might help you figure out if they've maybe damaged a sensor or something - I assume it was this sensor that was triggered when the car was moved.

    No idea where the sensor is or anything though - I'm sure someone here will know.

    its a cheap little scissor jack one that come standard with cars. it would have been nice if they left a decent jack. it really annoys me how people get so jelous and have to steal other peoples things.

    Ah man. that's rubbish.

    I couldn't sleep at night knowing the pikeys were about.

    i'd be sat on the porch in my rocking chair all night with the shotgun propped up just nicely. A squirrel, a badger or anything thats messing about, bang. no mercy.
