    Default 2006 Mahindra Scorpio 2.6 Alarm problem

    Howzit guys,

    I need help with my alarm. This is the factory fitted unit. All the doors, windows, bonnit and back door are closed properly, when the alarm is activated. The car is parked and locked in the garage. The time frames and frequencies are irratic, but the alarm will go of for no reason. I've had an additional immobeliser fitted, as the standard alarm isn't recognised by insurance companies. The alarm still goes off after this was done. I've had the alarm tested and it was given clean bill of help. What else could it be?

    Check your battery, some alarms will sound if the voltage drops below a certain voltage.

    Does it have an IR sensor? I had issues with my Nissan Sani and the sensor picking up temp differences and it would activate the alarm for no good reason.

    I also had this problem...turned out to be one of the door sensors.... This is a very basic push in/out switch with rubber cover. One of them dirty. Sprayed all out with contact cleaner. no more issues.

    I need help with my alarm. This is the factory fitted unit. All the doors, windows, bonnit and back door are closed properly, when the alarm is activated. sometimes when locking... it gives off 6 beeps. but it locks. after a while.. the alarm goes off. but when i lock again.. one beep and all is well. but i use only my door most of the time this happens. so it could be my door switch might be faulty. how do i clean the switch. ive checked battery terminals.. all good. battery is fairly new. any other suggestions might help. thanks mod

    When this happened to me with my 2014 scorpio and i took it in to be fixed, the mechanic showed me adjustable windy things (sorry don't know what they are called), that are inside the bonnet and doors to make them close neatly. If they are adjusted wrong, the sensor can be only just activated, and possibly flick to the other mode while the vehicle is parked. He adjusted them a little and the problem has not recurred.
