have you tried disconnecting the car battery press the brake this should get all the charge out of the system and re conecting the battery this may re set the clifford alarm?

Failing that take it to a clifford authorised dealer and see what they have to say?

hope this is of help.

I don't think Cliffords can be reset like this. They remember the last settings before power loss.

Your need the 4 digit pin code to reset it or the cliff net wizard interface and soft wear.

Ps the going rate for a clifford call out is 150quid.

Cliffords are imo cheap nasty and unreliable and the authorised dealers have technicians that get payied per install and in most cases there rushed and not installed or set up correctly.

My 950 is all singing all dancing yet for the price I payied for it I would expect to have a power motor fitted for free not charged for on the drivers side so the remote cl works. The siren to still work after a year and not be charged for a new one after waiting 6 weeks to get It and a further 4 week to fit it and not have the imobilizer pack up after 18months.

This is all in addition to the damage they also done to my interia.

I had this exact same problem, allbeit a different make of alarm.

When most aftermarket alarms are fitted they add an extra motor & arm to active the original central locking on the car. This is likey to be where the problem lies although never seen how a clifford alarm works?

I had to remove the facia/panel for the door so I could access the central locking mechanism to re-adjust the rod connected between the added motor for the alarm and the actual central locking as it had become loose and stopped working.

The motors are quite flimsey too so you may even find that the fixing for the motor has snapped and need a new motor too.

Try this and if this is not the same set-up you will have to get a mobile alarm specialist out I'm afriad.

2nd that! My toad had to have a extra motor to activate the door locks. Mine is located in my drivers door (it effectively pulls the manual door lock lever from the inside when you arm the toad alarm system).

Have a look at your drivers door for anything that looks aftermarket/additional & take it from there....
