Alarm 996 turbo 2001

Recommended Posts


I've had some problems with my 996 turbo 2001..

the alarm sets off on it's own..

I've installed a original cd/radio player, and changed the Alarm Control unit.

After this was done, the beep from the horn disappeared, no problems with the alarm starting on it's own..

about a week later, once again the alarm went off..

what I've discoverd later on, is that I had several mice in the car, the basterds are now all dead :-)

so, can mice set of the alarm? I guess there is a motion senor inside the car?

There is no fault codes..

Is it possible that mice could set off the alarm while they are crawling around inside the car?

You can use a PST2 or PIWIS tester to check individual zones (even when there are no faults) this will narrow down where the fault is.

I doubt they are crawling around and setting it off more likely chewing or urinating.
