  • Hi,can anyone help me,I have a vauxhall antara 2013, and I cannot find any fuse which says alarm, is it called something else?

  • I have a problem with the car allarm on my 13 plte antara,comes on on different times for no reasons,any idea where the relay is and how to stop

  • Hi John & Mario, I have only seen this page today and noted your queries. Have you both still got your Antara and if so have you resolved the problem ? I may have a so-called FIX for it. Regards. Ian.
