Battery looks pretty new and its turns over fast and strong so don't think thats it. I have narrowed it down to the alarm unit. Lock the car by the key and not with the fob (i assume this just locks the doors and doesnt activate the alarm) its fine. No flashing. Lock with the fob and its flashing after a minute for a few mins. I caught it doing this 3 times on a row after i locked it last so presume something is upsetting the alarm.
I think i have developed a bit of an embarrassing problem with my gen 6. When i lock up about a minute after setting the alarm the hazards start flashing for no apparent reason. Ive opened and shut bonet boot windows doors and tried again but still the old girl flashes. This goes on for about 3 mins. It is fitted with an auto watch alarm inmobilser. No noise or alarm going off just a single series of flashing for 3 mins then thats it gone and no more sets as far as i can tell after sitting out watching for 30 mins. Ive never noticed it before today but have noticed hazards flashing when the boot is opened. Its an import model. Can anybody enlighten me whats normal in terms of setting the hazard lights off on it? Can this function be disabled at all as it draws attention to the car at the petrol station and parking up etc. I have changed the fob batteries this week but it all works fine and no issue with the fob. Maybe its always done this and ive never seen it before now?
I was near Sunny Scunthorpe Lincs last weekend and i saw a beautiful dark blue gen 6 flash past me. Never seen pne that colour before. Yesterday going through York i passed a lovely black gen 6 like mine. I get jelous now knowing mine is on ramps.

Hi, This is probably on here sonewhere but a friend of mine has shared this with me so i thought i would post this link on here for anybody who is interested in workshop manuals. Probably common knowledge but maybe helpful for some people looking. http://bgbonline.celicatech.com I believe it covers all generations too so a good resource.
