The fob lights up suggesting it has battery (I've also put new batteries in just in case) but the bike alarm is not remotely disarming on my zx12r. Put the key in the ignition and the alarm sounds for 30secs as it should. The first time this happened was when we were just about to set off again after having stopped for lunch on a big rideout - I got left behind but the alarm disarmed an hour later having worn my thumb to bare bone pressing the button on the fob. Now it won't switch off at all.
Datatool were all too quick to suggest I need a new circuit board but I've also read about the alarm 'spiking' when the bike uses a trickle charger...which I leave the bike on constantly. What is this spike and is it something I can remedy myself?
I really don't want to get bent over by an alarm installation place so any help would be greatly appreciated.
