All this cutting in and out business came after the car was modified by Renault on a recall about 3 months after I'd had the car, apparently some owners had suffered from fuel evaporation, therefore making it very difficult to start the car after a hard long run. TBH I never had that problem though

If you are really concerned about your alarm being affected by the fan cutting & out I'd time the duration yourself to see just how long this cycling fan cuts in and out for.
Thanks hondo i might take you up on this but no need at this time,i do not think i have much to worry about i have had this Espace for a year next week and i have never yet heard the fan on yet apart fron once in traffic and even then the car was still running cheers Donald
