Hey all;

 

I ran across a picture of a couple of key fobs for a Range Rover alarm system -- while I knew such a thing exists, I have no idea how to check if one's RRC has the alarm equipment in it...  is there an easy way to tell (fuse, mysterious black box, etc.)?

 

Thanks

I've never seen these parts in my Range Rover so I probably don't have it.

 

Thanks!

I've never seen those parts on any RRC I've ever worked on!

 

If you drop the panel under the steering column and look up in there, over on the left side near the door should be the alarm control module, looks like this:

If you have it, take it out. The goal is to simplify... Thus more reliable.

Getting back to an old topic with some new info.
 
First of all, RRC didn't have alarms till '92, and keyless entry with a fob came out in '93. So Red Rover should have the module I showed above for the alarm only, but no system for the fob.
 
I recently installed a compete system on my '91 which I bought from Amazon for $25, called Avital, made by Viper. So far it's been great. It wasn't all that difficult to install, the toughest part was figuring what type of locking system the truck has from the factory as you can really screw it up if you wire it incorrectly, but once I got past that it was relatively easy. I now have remote locking/unlocking from the key fob, with alarm, and options for additional sensors such as a glass breakage sensor and remote hatch unlocking if I want to add them.

Since I can't 're-like' this comment, I'll just quote it.  :)

 

On my newer (crap...can't recall the year - '93?) RRC, it likes to automatically lock the doors about 85% of the time after you close the driver's door.  If you have the windows up and the key in the rig that could be a bad day... I always make sure to leave the a window down at least part of the way for exactly this reason!

I think I'd stash a Hide-A-Key somewhere as added insurance!
