1999 C2 Cab (Australia)

Slowly working though a bunch of repairs and tidies, servicing, rattles etc, on this recently acquired.


Alarm does the double beep with the roof up and the single with it down. Last time checked with the Durametric it indicated the sensor. So got a 2nd hand sensor from the UK, and tried it, no different, no idea if it is working or if testing it is possible. With the roof down it takes it out of circuit, so it is maybe something else.

Maybe that code is generic for an interior switch somewhere. It has had a replacement stereo and amp.

Whether or not any of the required switches are not closed, would cause a fault....but I am sure that the red Alarm LED on the center of the dash should flash, get nothing from it at all.

The Owners Manual seems to say no LED is a fault, but the Bentley book 96-9 indicates it will flash.


Maybe if someone has experienced this, with the LED not flashing, might be a shortcut to a fix.

Thanks Loren, I'll get it plugged in again this week and check, ........my laptop broke so I have to get someone else's


The alarm wasn't really a high priority at the moment, but the windshield is being replaced, so if that provides any needed access at the time to the LED.

Thanks Loren,


The Durametric reported 2 alarm options, 32 and 48, but the 48 report info indicated type 32.

Both had Fault code 32, Passenger Compartment Monitoring Sensor.. the I48 also indicated, "short to ground".


Same code I got before swapping out the module, and after....996.618.210.02


Any thoughts welcome,

A quick not entirely successful update, but still something.

Was checking the roof pump fluid level and fixing a rear window reg.

After putting it back together, the clam would not work, so cleared the time-out fault and did a calibration, the roof then worked completely.

Checked the alarm status, roof up still a double beep with the interior sensor reported, but, roof down now there is no single beep that used to be there.

Tested opening the center compartment, alarm went off, hooray.

What are "tidies"? Something similar to titties? I assume like in tidy? ?
