Discussion in 'Meriva' started by HOTTIGERUK, Jul 27, 2004.




    I have just purchased a Vauxhall Meriva Enjoy 1.6 16v. I got a good
    deal and after 2 weeks driving I am quite happy with the car. A few
    days after I bought the Meriva I had a CLIFFORD CONCEPT 300 Alarm
    fitted. Now whenever I press the Clifford Key Fob to turn off the
    alarm it unlocks all the Meriva's doors and then re-locks them except
    for the driver's door. Also, when I turn off the ignition and take
    out the keys all the doors will unlock and then re-lock save for the
    driver's door.

    When this happens I have to use the Vauxhall Key Fob to unlock the
    locked doors. If I am inside the car I have to use the Vauxhall Key
    Fob OR open the locks manually.

    When I spoke to the Alarm Installer I was told that this was happening
    due to the central-locking feature/system of the Meriva. That the
    Meriva was too new and Vauxhall have not yet produced an appropriate
    interface for the Meriva's Central Locking System and the Clifford
    Concept 300. That I will have to live with this until such time
    Vauxhall make the necessary interface.

    I would be grateful for any advice on this, especially from any Meriva
    Owners with a Clifford Concept 300 or other Clifford Alarm installed.

    With thanks,

  2. If the installer knows that the alarm is not suitable for your car,then he
    should not have sold it to you

    Just what I was thinking

    Its like someone selling you a satellite reciever for your tv and saying, oh
    im sorry your subscription wont work for a year as the model is so advanced.

    Take it back and tell him that he should not have sold you this, if he knew
    you would have problems.

  4. Forgot to mention - if push comes to shove, talk to trading standards

  5. I second this. Take it back, ask him to remove it and give you a complete

    I am pretty sure Vauxhall already do a reasonably priced Thatcham Category 1
    alarm upgrade for the Meriva too.
