Question : I
AM the owner of a Proton Gen2 1.6(A).
Recently I had problems starting the engine.
I changed the battery and the problem was gone.
Three weeks later, the problem happened again.
i was told by the mechanic that the belting was too loose and the
tensioner did not work.
The mechanic changed the tensioner but the engine could not start.
Then he took the car to check the wiring and the wireman told him that
the alarm was faulty.
The alarm system was then disabled and removed.
Then the engine could be started.
If I install a new alarm system, will the same problem happen ?
It is probable that the alarm system is at fault because one of its
functions is to immobilise the vehicle by disabling the ignition system.
If on removal of the alarm system the car can start and run normally,
then it is more likely that it is the cause of the problem.
