Weird alarm issue

Recommended Posts

This is kinda odd. 99 V8,

Sometimes, when I disable the alarm, if I wait a couple of seconds (or) close the door before cranking, the ignition won't turn ( i Read something about an engine disable feature?) Not sure what is going on.

It's the factory alarm system. By hitting the unlock button twice, I can then crank it.

Odd.....

Thanks everyone. It's nice to be back in an Esprit.

If you take more than 30 seconds from unlocking to starting the immobiliser will arm itself. Just to experiment, unlock the car, stand next to it and 30 seconds later you'll see the indicators (erm, blinkers) blink which is the telltale of the arming process.

Cool. Thanks.

I'm not sure if it was coincidence, but I changed the battery in the key fob and it doesn't do it anymore. I didn't think there was any proximity-type device on our cars. Not sure if it's just a gremlin or coincidence, but it seems to have remedied itself....
