Hi All

My 2005 T5 has a cobra alarm fob fitted as standard as far as i can tell it is. Black round fob with 2 grey buttons

Its always been a little tempremental having to be right close to the van to get it to work but this weekend its stopped working completely. you now have to lock with the key, have repalced the battery but it makes no difference

Now, have been quoted £100 to remove it, or £40 p/h to come and diagnose it, been told it could be a simple fuse or the unit could be dead

How easy are these to remove myself

What other alarms have people fitted, thinking it may be better to take this one out and replace with something else, i have a clifford on my golf.

Or should i just get this original one fixed?

Advice please, thanks in advance

Try getting a price for new can alarm fitted they might not charged for removal we don't tend to unless it's a real pain which I doubt it will be but always worth checking your alarm manual for trigger diagnosis to see what's up

I'll have a look and see if there is a manual for it later

Been told it could be a fuse that has gone in it, So need to find the brain of it and check that first i guess
