    Well it's 00.44 & the Vanbitz alarm just went mental.
    Semi naked no keys & encouraged by the misus I belted down the stairs & out the door.
    All locked up 5 flashes of the led.
    I hope I did not just break a bone in my foot cos it ackes like fudge.

    Five flashes in the internal sensors. Give Us a call and we'll talk you through what to check for.

    I've heard of thieves that constantly shake a vehicle to deliberately set off an alarm time and time again, until the owner simply doesn't set it so that neighbours don't complain and everyone gets some sleep :Eeek:

    Sneaky buggers then take the vehicle without the need to sort the alarm:groan:

    Hope your foots ok :)

    It's an older video, but shows how important it is to have a good alarm...

    Do what I do. Store your van in a secure compound then if anybody gets a broken foot it's the compound owner.
