do you have a Clifford alarm or maybe another type !!!

I got one of these too.... turns out it's a valet switch so the alarm can be disabled by doing some silly on off process that corresponds to an password..

just a thought... you never know!!

wow... how was that for luck...

i wouldn't press it till you know how it works properly.. what kind of alarm do you have... i think mine is a concept 30 or something like that.

anyways... the switch is latched, on one side it stays down on the other it's like a botton..

i'm going home just now (at work) will take the manual with me tomorrow and check your reply incase it's the same version as mine and you dont have one!!

Gotta run
Cheers

forgot to take the manual with me..duh!!

A bit more info though... There should be a light somewhere on the dash which is either constantly on (even when driving) or off and flashes when you lock the car via the remote.

If the light is constantly on then your alarm is set to valet mode, which means it's not actually armed (not sure if the car is immobilised or not).

The Clifford user guide says how simple there system is to work... no comment from me!

And do you have the pass code for the alarm as this is essential to continue with anything else

Let me know...
