I don't know but the standard one is cack, I thought mine used to go off because I had a weak battery but it still goes off even though I've changed the battery. I'm thinking that the weather must set it off now because it will sound on a hot sunny day. I know that I used to have a TOAD alarm on one of my classics and that seemed to be a pretty decent

Yeah was thinking of a toad or a Clifford concept but depends on cost to remove one system and fit a new one

The Clifford Concept is a good alarm isn't it, they used to advertise quite regularly in the car magazines. A bit pricey though from what I remember.

Yes mate. I have a Toad on the Type R and when I bought it there was only 1 alarm fob and it looked like it was about to disintegrate. I contacted a bloke called Ian Mewse who is an alarm engineer and he was able to send me 2 brand new fobs and I was able to code them to my alarm using his instructions. It cost me £50 for the 2 brand new fobs. If you want his contact details I can get them for you bud. The PIN code for my alarm was missing so I had to open my alarm up and give him the serial number and he was able to get the PIN code from Toad for me too.

Andy mine was on the car when I got it - it has 2 buttons on the fob - According to the manual button 2 is for total closure of windows, but I've never tried it. The first one just arms and disarms it and opens and closes the doors. It hasn't had any problems at all so far - I think it was an early model called a "Sterling One" - but manufactured by Toad and the Toad model is Toad Ai600. It isn't temperamental and hasn't gone off accidentally or pissed me off at all really.

Can't you just get a new Sigma fob and then reprogramme it if it is playing up? I've seen the fobs for sale on eBay and Facebook. And Rob Ostle knows the procedure for reprogramming them
