    Question FIAT Fullback Alarm

    Hi Fullbacks

    My bakkie's alarm sometimes beep four times when locking, and sometimes only twice.

    Fiat centurion just shrugs their shoulders and say they cannot do anything about it. Yes, the bakkie is still under warranty.

    The fact that it behaves differently, and I am not able to reproduce the problem, says something is wrong.

    What is the normal coming and going ito your alarms? Beep once for unlock, twice for lock?


    Also, please advise on another dealer, preferably in Pretoria? Is Menlyn any good?


    Wow FIAT Centurion's service is horrible! I feel so bad for anyone who has bought a R1m+ Jeep there! Sies (Not even worth explaining why I say so, not even due to the alarm not being able to be fixed)

    Ja, oor die algemeen is ek steeds baie tevrede. Meer spyt dat ek omgegee het oor waarborg, maar die handelaar voel nie die selfde daaroor nie.

    Can you reproduce the one honk, or the four honks at will?

    I have a booking with Fiat Menlyn tomorrow, and will hear what they have to say.

    Yes, they did! Top notch service from FIAT Menlyn, highly recommended!

    They found a bulletin about the alarm module that gives problems. They will have the part in three weeks, and will install it.

    I've been driving Fiats and Alfas a while. Alarm always gives an additional sound as a warning if one of the doors or boot is not properly closed when activating.

    Not saying this is the problem for the OP, but hopefully it will help someone.

    I found that my Fullback gave additional beeps when arming the alarm if my indicator was on when I turned off the key. The additional beeps are there to just warn you that something is not where it should be (eg the indicator lever) try it and let me know.

    Tried everything, if the doors are open, it does not arm at all.

    If I lock and or unlock the door before arming, I still cannot reproduce the four beeps.

    Lights on, lights off. Sometimes one beep, sometimes four.

    Indicator? Nope, that is also not active when locking.
