Hi Guys,
Apologies, if this has already been posted!
I have a Rover 416i R Reg, and the Alarm keeps randomly going off by itself.
(Mostly, in the middle of the night) which is annoying!
I noticed the "Door open light" on the dashboard comes on and stays on sometimes, and it sometimes takes a couple of times closing the passenger door for the light to go out.
I have changed the pillar switch on that side, thinking it was the switch that was failing, but the Alarm is still going of (When it feels like it).
I also had the Alarm sensor inside the car changed a while back.
Anyone got any suggestions how I can fix this?
I was thinking of wedging the pillar switch permanently, so it thinks the passenger door is always shut?
Is there a way to lock the car with just the doors locked and immobiliser set, but not the Alarm?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Dave.

Don't forget the boot switch and bonnet. My P' 220 had the same fault, now disabled all door switches and bonnet switch and the alarm hasn't gone off 'yet' (bonnet was done Saturday).

Hi bluefloyd,
Can I ask how you disabled all the door switches e.t.c.?, as I will probably do that myself.
Cheers!!
