    Astra alarm lights going off all the time 15th Apr 19 at 8:57 AM
    Has anyone experienced this?

    I have an astra 58 plate and the alarm lights keep flashing no alarm sound. It is happening all the time sporadically which in turn is making my battery flat. Writing to alarm has been checked and there doesn't seem to be a problem. Any ideas, its driving me crazy having to keep jump starting the car. TIA

    Seems like your sounder on the alarm is faulty.

    Had similar on my Merc a while ago, turned out the battery was on its way out. If in doubt, just replace it - mine was the original Varta one (10yrs old) and passed all checks, but only after I replaced it the issue went away.

    Batteries can cause all sorts of weird issues like this.
