I currently have 2004 Ford Transit with slam locks to the rear and a Sigma alarm system that appears not to be working.

I am thinking of replacing that with a system that will protect the cab area with a perimeter electronic bubble.

Any recomendations on alarm systems for vans and of course how much?

PS I already have a van vault, large dog, pick axe handle by the door and the bad temper to go with it.

It's a shame we are not allowed to use those anti carjacking devices that they use in South Africa, you know the gert great pipes that run the length of the vehicle down both sides, anyone tries they get a face full of flame.

Hi andy, if its any help I have been an auto-electrician for around ten years and have fitted numerous alarms to transits, especially sigmas. To replace it with a new one you could for around

How about my system - Used to be the 1.5KW inverter, but now uses a Big electrolytic cap. Won`t kill, but It`ll take skin off! Plus - sudden discharge sounds a siren - 112dB @ 1M=serious headache. X( ]:)X( X( :^O :eek:
