Default Ticking noise from inside boot

Just this afternoon I noticed quite a loud ticking noise coming form inside the boot, around the alarm horn/CD changer area. Itís ticking regularly, with the ignition off, at around once per second, and has been doing so for some hours now. (I donít use the CD changer, but I do have phone prep, which I think is in that area too).

Hopefully nothing serious as weíre just heading off to Scotland!

Anyone got any ideas?

Does your alarm siren still work Jim? If not, might just be the old leaky siren battery problem causing the siren circuit to emit the ticking noise.

I’m not sure if it’s still working. Brian gave me one a year or so ago and it was OK when I fitted it. But I think I’ll take the damn thing out as this is the third that I’ve fitted. Unless anyone has found a lasting solution?

My lasting solution was to take it out and throw it away
