Gt Alarms

Does any one know how to reset the GT alarm so that the alarm doesn't go off when you open the boot via the remote. I used to be able to open the boot without unlocking the car, but now I have to unlock the car first. Any assistance will be much appreciated.

Re: Gt Alarms

My alarm is exactly the same, used to be able to open the boot, if it beeps twice the alarm will go off when opened and if it beeps 3 times you can open it no problems. My alarm has started to go off when I start the car and you can't turn it off, I end up driving down the road until it times out, there is no way to stop it.

Took it to the dealer and they have advised me to buy a new car battery?? Should I do this and then can I get the dealer to pay for it when it doesn't work, as I bet it won't fix the problem.

Re: Gt Alarms

My GTP stopped doing this once the CAPA edit was installed

Re: Gt Alarms

Guys l think these dealerships talk crap and feed you alot of bullshit.

The problem is there are 2 ways of connecting the factory alarm 1. is for a sedan and the other is for the ute. What happens is that they connect the wrong wire for the boot and this is why the alarm goes off when the boot is opened with the alarm turned on.....as l know the guys who supply and make the alarm.....

Re: Gt Alarms

Sometimes the alarm module gets drunk, remove the positive battery lead for about tem minutes and then replace. Had that same problem about three times, and has not occured any more.

The Edit is new software for the ECU to run the engine which replaces the dodgy Ford software. It's available from a few different suppliers like CAPA (capa.com.au) called Ford Flash Tuner or Herrods Motorsport called the Stealth. They are the same thing from SCT from America, the guys came out and figured out the BA's and did us all a big favour. It has recently been upgraded with revised programming too.

It can be custom tuned to suit your vehicle by a certified tuner or you can use the generic tune from the box for good results, best results come from having it custom tuned.I use the generic tune in mine and love it, I am too far away from a custom tuner, although it can be done by mail, you get a dyno sheet, post off your box and sheet and the tuner loads a custom program for your vehicle............. why have'nt I done that yet???????
