sorted.

the interior lights, clock, boot light, rear wiper and radio all run off the same 10amp fuse.

I wondered why my Clifford would go off randomly when it rained and when arming, so I counted the LED flashes and it told me that the boot was being triggered.

After doing some digging I found that the alarm uses the negative wire for the boot light as the trigger.

On closer inspection and some unravelling of loom I found this....

:shake:



The wire was just rats tailed onto the wire, no connector block, nothing. :shake:

after some trimming and cutting I dropped them into a connector block, stuck a new fuse in and hey presto, it works - with no more warnings from my alarm either!

******* cowboy installers :shake:

If the fuse number is the same as the R25, the fuse in position 3 runs the audio/clock/interior light.

I had a similar problem, checked/changed the fuses. Everything is ok now.

What i found strange, was that with the fuse blown, the clock still worked!!!

Just the fact the clock always was 5mins slow, changed the fuse and the clock/interior light and the CD changer works!!
