Interesting, I don't have a key fob for my S4. Did the car come with one originally? Mine was built in October (US Spec - has airbag on passenger side, but not Brembos) My key currently arms the alarm with a secondary twist.

i think it was added later, so when i bought it i got a fob, it immoblises but not sure if it alarms it as i have never heard it go off, no airbags or brembos although i cant seem to find the certificate or hand book that came with it, can never find something when you need it most

It's a different alarm on my SE (Audioline IIRC), but there's a hidden arming switch by the front fusebox on a flying lead. My remote blipper stopped working last year, so I've turned it off and just use the keys now. I plan to have the alarm replaced - it's SO uncool having to fumble with door keys!

well my wife lost it so would sub-human error be covered?

Pretty sure it's an 'Act of God'

well i married her so ... human error, when she reads this i think the immobiliser will be the least of my problems perhaps getting the immobiliser out of the orrafice its crammed into maybe the next tech question

1.wife lost your fob

2.fob loss ruled as act of god

therefore: wife = god.

~ use this logic to avoid a future tech post involving imobilizers and orrafices! :blush:
