Hi Richard, cleaned all connectors. Had to drill a hole in the tilt sensor box to drain out loads of water. Do you know if changing the battery back up is possible and finally, can the tilt sensor box be opened up in any wY to get at the inside for a deep clean. I'm coming up against a brick wall here with this one. Alternatively there are some second hand upgrades available but these require new brackets and connection wire. Thanks

Hi David

I think you are bashing your head against a brick wall if the tilt sensor has flooded and the siren battery has expired.  Both are sealed units, and you would have to cut the cases to get them apart.  It might be worth trying with the siren, as you can probably fit a new rechargeable battry if you can get it apart.  As for the tilt sensor, I would try and get a good used one from a breaker, or replace it with the later sensor that goes under the passenger seat.  I have the wiring instructions if you need them.
