Default Brant Playing Up

Hey All,

Hoping to get some help from the community!
I was just sitting here minding my own business then my MY06 just started beeping one beep every 2 seconds or so... it beeped maybe 5 times and then stopped after I did lock unlock lock unlock. I had my keys sitting next to me so there was no buttons being pressed and I looked outside and no one (or pets) were around to be touching it. so i left it be and then about 5 minutes later the alarm went off - same again with no one around. I have no idea what's going on! Any one got any ideas (apart from changing alarm)?

Thanks for the help

That is what I was thinking as well. It went flat a few weeks ago but was charged up and has been working fine with no problems at all - driven regularly etc. I'll throw it on charge again today and see what happens!

(i'm not too good at the whole "car" thing being a girl and all hehe)

if the battery is more than a few years old, might be time to replace it. But do try charging it again first.

Yep. Mao is a legend at dealing with Brant alarms. Gets my vote.

Evo R dealing with Brant alarms = just removing them, regardless of whats wrong with them.

You'll have to check with Mao of course, but although he may have removed your Brant system he would have checked to see if it could be repaired first. He has performed many successful repairs on Brant systems for users on this forum.

EDIT: Have a read of this thread to get an idea of Mao's Brant services http://www.perth-wrx.com/vb/evolutio...g-removal.html
