This afternoon, i was sitting in the house and the alarm went off in the Van. Naturally, i ran out expecting to confront someone tampering with it. The alarm had stopped by the time i got out, but the lights were still flashing. When i got there, there was no one about.
So i opened it up and climbed inside, and sat for a while scratching my head as to why it had gone off. And then thought maybe i had a problem starting regarding the alarm going off it's self. Then out the corner of my Eye, i spotted the culprit (well i hope i have). An Inch and a half Beetle started climbing up the passenger side window.
I know the Van has motion sensors inside, so i presume that it was the Beetle flying about that triggered the sensor.
Has anyone else had this sort of thing happening, with an Insect etc triggering the alarm?

Remember that you have the motion sensor button on the pillar inside the drivers door which you can dis-able if need be.. :thumbsup:

So, having Ghost installed will stop flying Insects etc from triggering the motion sensor? Really?

Nope, but it'll help you sleep easier....

Try dis-abling the motion sensor as suggested... :thumbsup:
