Hey people, been having this issue for a while now, and it's becoming a bit worse.

These are the symptoms:

1. DASH, sometimes, on bumpy roads, the shift indicator will blink. This is not always, but seems to be more noticeable on bumpy roads. The "blink" is very faint, so during day is not very clear, it's mostly seen in low light, so not sure if it's head-light related.

See video:

2. Alarm, it will go off randomly when the car is parked. The weird part is that it happens mostly when the car is outdoor and even more if it's raining/washing car. I know there is a way to tell which sensor triggered the alarm, but I can't seem to figure out how to count the blinks.... Once I unlock the car it will blink to confirm unlock, but unsure when to count? After ignition is on??


thanks for the help, want to make the most out of the isolation and address this problem.

best!
Daniel

Not sure about issue #1 But #2 is most likely your microwave sensor picking up the rain/water hitting the windshield and setting off the motion alarm. There is a procedure to adjust the sensitivity of the microwave alarm from inside the cabin.

Thanks man!! Had no clue about that sensor honestly...

Found this on another thread:

“If desired, the alarm may be armed without the intrusion sensor or battery interruption circuits being active by arming the system in the usual way with the transmitter larger button, and within 20 seconds, pressing the smaller button twice.” (p.34)

Also, “If leaving the car for servicing or parking, the passive immobilisation feature may be switched off by switching on the ignition and pressing the transmitter small button. Two beeps will confirm ‘valet’ activation, repeated as a reminder when the ignition is switched off. The security tell tale will remain off.

At the next arming command, the valet mode will be switched off, and normal immobilisation resume.” (p.31)

Will try and see if it helps.

Thanks!
