    An Alarm Question

    Hi Guy's,

    I hope you have all had a positive week !!

    Just a basic question please, I have been working on my Cobra with the engine out and battery removed etc.
    When I get it all back together and connect the Battery will the car just start as normal or will the alarm need charging or will it work as soon as the ignition key is turned. I just wondered if I need to do something with the alarm if it has been disconnected from the battery for over 6 months.

    Have a good weekend and thank you for any feedback

    Regards

    Rich

    As long as you have changed nothing and the battery wires are correct it should just work as normal.

    Charge your battery up, have the fob if it's a fob alarm handy as it may go off when you reconnect the wires, just use the fob to silence or reset it.

    If it's a just an immobiliser, connect your battery and wait for it to reset,usually there is a tell tale light on the dash to show you it's armed. once it's armed do your normal way of starting.
