1997 406 V6 alarm problem after flat battery

    In very cold snap battery went flat after car not used for 2 weeks. Alarm
    was somehow triggered on opening with key as did not respond to plip.

    After charging the car starts and has driven 500 miles since, but the red
    LED on the alarm button on the dash remains solidly lit.

    I have a key which fits a lock inside the offside boot, turning this 90
    degrees makes no difference, then turning it back to the original position
    triggers the alarm.

    The owner's handbook suggests behaviour from the red LED that does not
    reflect how it is behaving and does not even mention the key in the boot -
    neither do any search engines.

    Any advice appreciated. In essence I have a solid red LED on the alarm
    button which should not be there and never has been before.

  3. Have you tried locking and unlocking the car using the remote?

  4. "I've a '98 model and to the lower right of the steering wheel, on the dash
    board, are three "push switches", one should be a reset button for the alarm

    Thanks for the replies. The reset button to which you refer has the red LED
    in it. Short or long presses at various times make no difference whatsoever.
    Neither does the remote. Any more ideas? I thought of disconnecting the
    battery when the system was disarmed?
