waters mopped up now so hopefully shouldnt be anymore. is the alarm moduel under the seat? theres a wiring loom under there but couldnt feel any thing else. dont really want to remove the seat to look.  8) could the lock be duff in the door? another thing i noticed is the passenger side door dont lock the rest of the doors when locked from inside? sumit to do with it?  :-\

Can you clarify what you mean by "pins missing" ?
It sounds like the barrel switch isn't working so although its unlocking, the alarm isn't being told it's been unlocked

cheers  mirez  :) the pins that operate the interior lights when the door opens.daft thing is if the door is shut n locked n unlocked again straight away it dont do it  ??? im thinking maybe a intermitant  doorlock/actuator? there built in the doorlock aint they. think i,ll replace the two front ones and see if that cures it. cheers guys  ;)
