I’m looking to remove the alarm control unit from my Coupe and do without the alarm completely.
The fuse for the alarm plus clock, interior lights had been removed by a previous owner. Refitting it msde the alarm sound continuously - had to remove the fuse again
I have found and removed the siren unit, but the hazard lights flash continually - hence the need to remove the control unit. I need to know the location of the control unit - and whether removing it will cause other problems. Thank you
Batteries could be dead in both the fobs and the alarm siren. The siren batteries are rechargeable and when they expire they can draw too much current and drain the main battery for you. The 918U siren batteries can be replaced quite easily / cheaply, worth a try before ripping it all out and throwing it away ...

Replaced fob batteries to no avail. Do the batteries in the siren need to be serviceable for the alarm to arm/disarm etc? May have another fiddle but the reset procedure doesn't seem to work will miss remote locking but I guess I could buy a 3rd Party unit for that.
