Dead Battery/Alarm

So, not only am i having stereo problems now my battery is flat!

the problem is when i go to disconnect it, the alarm goes loopy (dont know where its getting its power from.) is there anyway of disabling the alarm whilst i take the battery out as i want to charge it

also will the alarm go off again when i reconnect the battery

driving me bloody mad now!

What you describe is completely normal for these cars, and there is no way to disable it from happening without killing the security system.

You also do not need to remove the battery to charge it........
