OK Zeldazog, here we go ... this is for the Renault Cobra factory fitted or accessory fitted alarm systems ... (I dont know the outcome if tried with the earlier Philips or later Sigma alarm systems)
hope some of this helps
I haven't had chance to try your suggestion yet (I need someone to help me disconnect batteries and stuff!) - but, as a matter of interest.....
how can I tell what sort of alarm I have fitted? It was a factory fitted (alarm as standard on RXE) and its a 1998 (new shape, just) Clio
All I can tell you is I know there are two sensors at the top of each door pillar in the corner of the windows, and what I presume is the receiver eye (a red coloured dome) near the sunroof/interior light switches - dunno if that's relevant.
I will post when I have tried this (lets hope it doesn't do something silly to the immobiliser too, which for now, and fingrs crossed, still works).
Hopefully, this will solve it, but if it doesn't I still don't think its the keyfob as I know it at least sometimes sends an IR signal, although connection a bit dodgy (blue light/digital camera test).
Is there anyway I can tell if its the receiver eye, what can I look for? How easy are these to replace, any idea how much they are/where to get them from?
