How to Disconnect an Alarm on a Vectra B
The Vectra B is an estate vehicle produced by Vauxhall between 1995 and 2002. Over time, the powersounder batteries in the alarm can become worn out and cause the alarm to sound even when the sensors have not been triggered. If left untreated, this will cause the alarm wiring to short out.
Place the key in the door lock of your Vectra. Open up the driver's door and enter the driver's seat.
