    OK, I give up.
    How do I disconnect the battery from my 605 without setting off the alarm?
    The last time I took the car in for repair to an independent garage,
    THEY phoned ME to ask how to do this...I told them I had no idea. I
    spoke to them today to ask what they finally did and they told me that
    they just unbolted the alarm and buried the screeching thing under a
    pile of blankets outside the workshop until its internal bettery ran
    down.... which took nearly 24 hours.
    Not the sort of thing I can do at home if I am to live at peace with the
    neighbours.
    There's a simple answer....which is?

  2. Hi

    Depends what alarm system it has fitted.
    If we are talking standard factory fit alarms then,

    The early ones have a key switch to shut the siren up, Either under the
    bonnet or in the boot.
    Some use the igntion key, Others have a special key.

    The later ones need an alarm control button pressing down inside on the
    dash & the igntion key turned in a certain order before removing the
    battery.

    Ask your friendly Peugeot dealer if possible.

    key switch is inside the boot although the siren should only cycle 3 times
    before shutting down if its internal batteries are ok

    My key switch is under the bonnet, next to the O/S headlight.
    Unfortunately, the key given to me by the previous owner does not fit
    the lock.
    I have spoken to a number of Peugeot dealers in the local area and none
    can offer any help - they all say that the alram will go off when I
    disconnect the battery and I simply have to wait until the internal
    battery in the alarm runs down. One actually said to unbolt the claxon,
    take it off the car and stuff it under a pile of blankets in the middle
    of a field for a couple of hours... not one of them said the alarm would
    quickly die out, all implied it would be a looooooooong wait and a lot
    of noise.....
