Hi I've had my capture since November it was fine till Jan now the alarm goes off at random times, I turn alarm off and then reset but will keep going off. Is there a way I can turn alarm off when this happens? Sometimes it's fine for weeks then will play up again.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi Billie, welcome to the club! There have been several instances of this fault. Consensus is that it is the pressure sensor in the alarm.
I don't know how to switch off the alarm but if it's under warranty, see if the dealer can fix it for you.

Hi thank you, i have contacted them and have it booked in in a couple weeks time. They have said that they haven't come across this problem before (I know thats not true as I've read through some posts) they will charge £60 for a diagnostic and that if no fault will be up to me to pay! Think this is may my only option now as it's driving me mad and probably my neighbours to.
Thanks you

You KNOW there is a fault. It's if their diagnostic program can find it. That is all they rely on these days due to a lack of properly skilled "Technicians" Most them are spanner monkeys due to the fact that the wages are so poor.
Just a thought: If it's going to cost you £60 to find out that they are not up to the job, why not spend it on an alarm specialist?
According to what I read on the forums, the dealers are very reluctant to do warranty work. They make their money supposedly "servicing" your car

I'm really not impressed with them at all! I think that will be the best thing to do then at least I will get peace of mind
Thank you for your help
