Hiya, I have a clifford concept 300 alarm and its stopped beeping!
it used to beep when people were too close and when locking/unlocking the car, but its just stopped.
can anyone suggest what it could be or how to fix it?
Ive spoken to a clifford dealer and its £50 to get it looked at, and more after - but obviously dont want to pay out incase its something simple!
I have a manual but cant make head or tail of it!
i'm a girl, so please have sympathy!! lol!
thanks

Maybe uve put the alarm on silence or valet mode! do the headlights still flash when you press the lock button?

thanks for the reply.

I dont think my headlights have ever flashed when locking/unlocking.
If thats the case that i amy have switched them off, would you have any idea how to switch it back on??

theres a way to do it with your remote. to be honest your headlights or your indicators should flash when you arm the car, its worrying that they aint!!

You ought to have a second keyfob thingy, with more buttons on.

If you had inadvertantly put it in valet mode, this would be disabled the next time you started the car up.

My clifford is often silent, in fact it only seems to make any noise when you want to work on or clean the car, most of the time its quiet and I have no idea why. The immobiliser still works and the indicators still flash, I just wonder if this is a similar problem.

thanks for the replys!!

the only beeping I get is if the door is left open or something.

I mean it still locks and everything, just i thought it might be something simple - cause I cant be spending money uneccesarily.

thanks again!

Sounds like you have just silenced it to me. If it's in Valet mode then the alarm wont arm/disarm will it ? Been a while since I had a clifford, had nothing but problems with them.

Does panic mode still work ? Try holding down the arm button....does the alarm go off ?

The guy that installed my alarm said it's actually illegal in Europe to have arm/disarm chirps on an alarm system now ! Something to do with noise levels late at night, some EEC regulation etc etc....he said most places just ignore this but that it is strictly illegal.

Dont know if I believe that....but that's what I was told.....

Do cliffords still have the rocker switch to put them into valet mode ? If so check that out.
