    Hi all, I'm a newbie to the Transporter world and this is my first time posting on the forum. Hope to be a contributor here one day but for now, all I have is questions : - ) I bought a T4 camper (2003) that has factory-installed central locking. I've been searching for an alarm for it and...

    Just a question for any of you that can point me in the right direction, I have a T4 and when I bought it years ago it already had an alarm and immobiliser fitted, how to I get rid of it? Can I just cut the power to the alarm? I don’t know what manufacturer it is and what or where the whole...

    Hi guys Looked around on many threads and can’t seem to find an answer to my issue. I am having lock issues and tried the usual checks: Checked wiring loom under drivers seat Removed battery to reset the bcu Unplugged bcu while car turned on. Issue I am experiencing is as follows...

    Apologies for starting another alarm thread. I'm a newbie and am in need of an answer. Recently bought an 05 Caravelle and have been advised to upgrade the security system from cat 2 to cat 1. This is where I get confused. A Thatcham site I keep stumbling across says that post 03 Caravelles have...

    Hi guys, does anyone know much about Clifford alarms here? Or can anyone recommend anyone in the South West (Bristol ideally) that fits / knows about them? I bought a T4 a couple of weeks back and it has a Clifford alarm fitted. I *think* its a Concept 300 UK, but I'm not 100% confident...

    Ok, my alarm keeps going off at random times after it has been locked. I have changed the battery (it needed doing) . I have checked the fabled corroded junction to a red/blue wire near the convenience module under the seat and it all looks good to me . I had a Vagcom done and a fair amount...

    Ok, not posted for a while which is a good thing! So my alarm goes off between 10mins and 8 hours after being locked, typically goes off in the middle of the night. Did a Vagcom and quite a few faults point to the control module under the drivers seat. There is quite a lot posts on here about a...

    Hi I have just bought a used German import LHD T5 and am in the process of insuring it. The insurers want to know whether it has a security system. I doubt the previous owner would have retro-fitted an alarm; so does anyone know what category the standard T5s come with? Many thanks in advance...

    Hi, I recently purchased my T4 and it has an alarm/central locking, which seems to be working well (apart from the door sensors, but the interior lights dont work either so I imagine I'll fix that at the same time). The receipts show this as a Logic 600. One feature which seems to be a little...

    Hi all, We have a T4 camper, 02 plate. It's gone mad, and we need your superior knowledge to get it back to normal please! The story so far: Few weeks ago the engine cut out completely on the motorway. Doing about 70 mph at the time in the fast lane. Everything went, engine died. Pulled over...

    Any recommendations for a good, conscientious fitter for a Cat 1 alarm to T5 around my way? Willing to travel out of the county if necessary. Thanks

    Hi I have a panel van and was told at purchase it had an Alarm and Immobilizer. I have seen loads of threads about vans getting stolen and people fitting alarms, is the standard setup not very good? If it is not any good what are the recommendations for upgrade? Thanks Paul

    I have finally got myself a T4, after many years of looking, and the first job I have on my list of many is to fit a decent alarm. Just wondering which ones I should look at and which ones to avoid? The initial idea is for me & my brother (he's handy with a soldering iron) to fit the alarm so...

    Hi I was just wondering if anybody has had any experience of these types of things? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-VEHICLE-CAR-VAN-SECURITY-GPS-TRACKER-ALARM-STICKERS-/270844964439?pt=UK_Car_Accessories_Safety_Security&hash=item3f0f9e2e57 im interested in getting some as an extra deterrent on my...

    I've had a 57 plate 2.5 TDI since November, with a view to converting it to a camper. Everything seemed fine until I had to drive it thru floods in December. Soon after, the alarm started sounding intermittently, the central locking stopped working, and the battery lost its charge. The local...

    My 2008 T5's alarm keeps going off randomly! It went off about five or six times throughout the night last night for the second night in a row. It has been fine since I got it in September up until this week, but seems to be getting worse. Perhaps it is like me and doesn't really like the -5...

    Hi all, My T5 (2007) seems to be racking up some electrical problems, for me to solve over the winter. Initial problem was alarm going off, still a problem. Remote key fob not working. Manual key entry operates central locking with the exception of side door. Side door doesn't want to lock...

    Hi, I have a T5 Transporter. I have found that it automatically alarms itself after a while when not in use. If you are still in the vehicle, moving around will set off the Alarm. The manual says on page 25 (Booklet 3.1.1) there is a button to press to deactivate the internal motion sensor...

    I have just spent the whole day fitting a Silicon alarm with central locking, boot popper, one touch window module with auto closer and electric windows on my 1997 T4. I purchased a deluxe kit from Travelin Lite on ebay. The instructions were pretty comprehensive but fell short in relation to...
