Datatool system 3 up in smoke

Not run the 998 for a while and went to start it at the weekend and as soon as I put the ignition on the alarm fizzed did a decent impression of a smoke generator.

Looks like it needs a new PCB.

Anyone got any spares lying around?

Before you go for a new PCB Ray, get the wiring checked. There shouldn't be enough feed to the alarm to smoke it. There could be a feed from one of the immobalised circuits....fuel pump for instance??
Or get it cut out and bin it


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED

Thanks for the advice Nelly, I was all too ready to blame alarm for the meltdown, it was playing up already with the siren losing a lot of volume.

I'll check out wiring before I connect up a replacement pcb.

I did consider removing it completely but a new PCB looked to be an easier option.

Unless you really need it Ray, I'd cut it out and make good. I've done 2 or 3 already this season and it's doesn't seem to be as big a thing with insurers nowadays.
Best protection is a tacking unit tbh. It's the future

I've got what looks like to be a similar circuit board, just not got round to trying it properly yet.

Just not got the time or the inclination for two wheels in the depths of winter...................not sure I will have in the summer either,

The lad is more interested in four wheels than two so I'm in no great rush to fix the thing.
