side lights and alarm

Post by shavedchimp »

Just fitted some new sidelight bulbs. Whenever I turn them on, the alarm sounds. Shouldn't they turn on (without the alarm) when you turn the indicator on without the key in?

How can I stop this?

Are you talking about the 1-2 1-2 1-2 alarm that sounds with the lights on and a door open with no ignition on ?

yes I am.

Is there perhaps a faulty wiring set-up that makes the alarm sound when it shouldn't?

Nope this is normal. The alarm goes to warn you that the lights are still on when you open the door.

Does the alarm keep going with all your doors shut?
