Keys in ignition alarm

Keys in ignition alarm

Postby IR_Eddie » 07 Jan 2017 08:54

Morning all. A quick question:
Is the key in ignition alarm when door is open on a separate fuse that i can pull? It irritates the life out of me if as i leave my keys in the car with open door frequently.

Thanks

Yo Eddie - On my Opel Astra I was told it was a Computer programming that could turn it off -- Cost me R75 at the time and the dealer did something but it never sqweeked at me again.
Previous comments on this here on Patrol forum I recall that it was suggested to just find the buzzer and "knip sy draadjie"
Question: If you leave it on "ACC" does it still buzz?

I looked for a fuse but couldn't find any. Also thought of tracking ang cutting it.

Yes screams in Acc also.

OR you could just close the circuit in the door switch because that is where it gets it's signal from [the switch in the door frame that controls the roof light ?] coz it is only when you open the door that it activates -- Only bugg i see here is that the ALARM wil then also be disabled [I mean the anti theft alarm ]

Pity there is no "you left your lights on scream". I swear my dual battery system is just for that!!

To disable, take the shroud off the steering column and unplug the switch. its a small plug right next to the ignition switch. Did mine years ago... best mod ever!

My "left your lights on" alarm still works. The lights on alarm is handy. The ignition key alarm is, rather was, a pain!
