Unhappy Factory Fitted Security Device problem (Alarm / immob issue)

Hi All,
I have a 2001 Neon and when i lock the car the alarm / security device arms and the indicator on the dash board flashes rapidly as it should for 16 seconds.

Then the indicator goes out and flashes steady on and off. After the hazards have been flashing the red light flashes twice then pauses and repeats.

after approx 15-20 seconds the hazard lights flash approx 27 times and stop for approx 30 seconds then flash again approx 27 times, this repeats for around 10minutes before they stop flashes.

if i unlock the car the lights flash 3 times. The manual says this is to indicate someone has triggered the tamper warning, however ive been stood watching the car and no1 has been near it or attempt to do this at all.

also is there a way to test the auidable alarm also? ive tried leaving the window slightly open so i can unlock the car with the manual single door unlock switch and sat in the car waved my hand over the motion sensor but no siren goes off....

any ideas how to try find the cause and get the system working correctly again?

i have Neon SE 2.0l on Y Plate

I'll post this up in our Neon/SRT-4 forums and see what response I get. I've never heard of that particular issue before.

As far as testing the audible alarm, I do not believe the system has a motion sensor, it is triggered by a door being opened, it is a very basic system only. I know that if you leave the door open, and hit the button on the keyfob to lock the door, then manually unlock the door and close it, then open that door up (after a little time, you have to let the alarm 'set') it will cause the alarm to go off if the system is working correctly.

I have both a 2000 Neon SE and 2005 SRT-4.

there are motion sensors at either side of the internal light and according to the manual it is fitted with the premium security device which consists of:
truck checker,bonnet checker,door lock checkers and apparently it covers breaking glass etc also..

Maybe it is different for the UK models?

ive put wd on the door locks and the trunk lock and catch still didnt make a difference :S

Cheers though it you come accross anything.

Interesting, perhaps there is a different system then. My manual doesn't say anything about that, just a change in voltage causing a relay to the alarm, such as door opening. I've got a post up at the srt forum and waiting on some replies.

found out that the garage i purchased it off may have removed the engine light!

checked for error codes and got p1684 and p601

PCM faulty needs to be replaced P601
p1684 battery removed in last 50 starts.

Could the faulty PCM cause the alarm Fault?
