Car Alarms Immobilisation Fault Finding Help Page

In many case when an Alarm goes off it that the system is working ok but the unit is being triggered by a faulty

input lets go through them and hopefully this will help!


If a call out is required and the system is intact & the problem lies with the vehicle a call out card may be made,


Please note that information is related to the Autowatch units & the cure may not apply with other systems.


Problem†††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Cause / Symptom.


Alarm goes off 1 minute after Arming†††††††††††††††††† Is door / boot / bonnet closed properly. If yes, Check all pin

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† switches, Make sure they depress correctly. Note many vehicles now have

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† micro switches inbuilt with the latches.


Alarm goes off intermittently††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Isolate the Ultra Sonics' (Double press on the Arm Button when

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† arming. Now only the doors can trigger the Alarm.


Alarm goes off and will not disarm†††††††††††††††††††††††† Check if the Indicators are flashing if not the Car Battery has

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† probably dropped below 7 volts and the system has gone into anti-attack

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† & tamper. You need to get 12v of power to the Car Battery then disarm.


Ultrasonic & Optional Shock Exclusion††††† †††††††††††† Some customers get into the habit of double arming there vehicles.

†††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† When this is not required the System will beep to tell you that exclusion

†††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† Has been activated. This is a great feature when leaving windows open

†††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† Dogs inside, but not required always as this will decrease the security.


Ultrasonic & Optional Shock Exclusion††††† †††††††††††† Again as above but will do by default and warn of same.

(permanently)†††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† To enter with ignition on turn on/off 3 times in 6 seconds to Set

†††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† †††††††††††† Repeat to Un/Set



DO NOT CUT THE LEAD TO THE SIREN†††††††††††††† In all cases this will invalidate any Warranty



Alarm will not turn on / off with Remote†††††††††††††† Check Battery Led on Fob is it Flashing when pressed if Yes change

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Batteries in Remote. If not you may be in an area of High Radio Signal

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Activity. Use 5 digit Code to turn off Alarm.


Car wonít start (457Rli & 171Ppi)††††††††††††††††††††††††† Check LED has extinguished if so both Immobilisation points have latched

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ok and the symptom is probably more vehicle related.


LED not Flashing / Arming.††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Check vehicle fuses are all intact. A quick get out is to turn on ignition and

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† push disarm to release immobiliser. This wont work if the fuse gone affects

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† a running circuit.


DO NOT ADD LIGHTS TO LED††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† In all cases this will invalidate any Warranty


The Alarm is designed to use as little power as possible and this will burn out the board
