Hi all, 

 

The car I have has a Cobra alarm fitted. From looking on their website it looks like the 3193 model.

When the main button is pressed, the doors lock and the immobiliser is set. 

After a couple of days the battery is fairly low.

 

The battery is new, over the winter period I have the battery on trickle charge and showing over 13 volts.

 

The fix is not to set the alarm, just the key to lock the car and weeks and days later the battery is perfect. Car starts fine and no issues.

 

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Has anyone attempted to remove this type of alarm? or isn't it worth it, just carry on doing what I'm doing.

 

Thanks in advanced.

If the car is kept outside you could place a solar charger behind the windscreen to compensate the power consumption of the alarm.

Its kept in a garage, pretty much all the time when it isn't driven. Great idea though.
