I am in desperate need of help (mechanical rather than mental... but the mental help might be of use!) My '04 MR2 has sprung a leak, behind the back of the passenger seat there is a large amount of water ingress, this in turn extends to the footwells on both sides, and as a result is now messing with my alarm. :crybaby:

I've tried emptying the drains to resolve the problem but that has proved unsuccessful, i'm now at a loss as to what to do, if anyone of you fine boys or girls could offer me some assistance in suggestions of either things to do, or respectable places to take it around York then please let me know. :help:

If you want you can bring it over here tomorrow and we will turn the hose on it while someone looks for the leak inside?

HOORAHH!! - I've cracked it, my attempt at clearing the drains was in vain when I was doing it from the outlet upwards. As the culprit was a stuffed animal... (eeyore too be precise!) had blocked all the top up with rubbish! now thats sorted everything seems to be panning out nicely now, got my stereo fixed and my alarm is alot less problematic.

One down side is i've killed my aerial motor now... :(

I must admit my presence on the boards ahs been somewat slack over recent months, I shall be sure to improve it. :D

Sorry to raise this board from the dark merky depths of abys but I feel it relevant to this thread... what with my rubbish drainage system in my car I fear it may of had an adverse effect on my Alarm system. Now, albeit very sparadically I sometimes get my alarm go off when opening the door, the only way to stop it is to insert my key and press the unlock button on the key fob, any ideas girls n boys? :rolleyes:

Have you tried disconnecting your battery for a bit to reset all the on board electronics, worth a try?

I cleaned my drains out 3 months ago as i had a build up of water, i have had no problem with my alarm, last week i fitted a post cat oxygen sensor and now the alarm keeps going off every now and again when locked, i think its got to be something to do with the control unit when i dissconnected the battery, could be totally wrong?
