Hmm, I managed to set my alarm off recently by placing a cardboard box on the roof while I fumbled for my keys to open the boot. Pretty embarrassing, but I was glad to discover that it worked!

I set it off, by unlocking the car, opening the passenger door. Wait for it to lock itself again, then bang the passenger door shut :)

roll down rear windows,

single press arm the vehicle

wait for alarm indicator to start flashing (approx 30 seconds)

stick your hand in the back and wave it around... (not the hand holding the keys, incase you drop them in, :lol:)

listen to the siren and horns blare....

single press disarm the vehicle to disable siren :D

did it work?

Another way, which is easy, is pull the bonnet catch in the car to pop that up, then shut the door, lock the car using the button, and then open the bonnet using the manual latch - that's how I do it!

I think the easiest way is to lock the car, and then unlock either a door or boot with the actual key

Why do you want to set the alarm off anyway? Just to test it works or do you suspect it isn't working?

done all of the above alarm goes off when you open door but when you wave your hand around through a open window it doesnt checked the door to see if you can open from the inside and you cant anyone know where the sensor is to sir if its working or if its disconnected in any other way. :D :D

Just sit in the car, switch on alarm, pressing button once, once set move about and it will go off, the internal sensor, from what i can remember is in the inside light case :)

Hold up guys, the dealer told me to duble click the lock button. You hear the deadlocks kick in with the second press. Do the sensors also kick in then ?

Depends on the age of your car. On my ancient (2000) model IS, the second click turns off the interior sensor. I believe that changed on later models.

Have you tried the brick method?
