    One is alarm

    One is motion/tilt sensor - eg if your car is locked up and a thief fancies your alloys, the alarm will sound if the car is raised more than 5 degrees I think

    With the lights on the switches off, this means the alarms are active (I think)

    Yeah the alarm one keep's the alarm on whist you can leave a child in the car , say your nipping into the shop for a paper you flick the switch so it lights up red and lock the car the alarm will be on but child can wave arms etc in the car , it will only go off iff a window or door in broken into ...

    And like boydie says the other is so a breakdown truck can tow your car off without the alarm screaming but also locked ...

    :laugh:

    On a side note, you would struggle for anyone to notice the alarm going off, it's that quiet (for a car alarm!)
