Hi all!
I've now had my UK spec 300 supersport for nearly two months- loving it! However, I had a factory fitted alarm/immobiliser; it appears to switch itself off after being left for about 3 days, ie, the red light (not the dash one) no longer flashes. I can then approach with key fob in pocket ( at this point I have tried to disarm the alarm with key fob- no normal flashing of indicator lights) and start the scooter. When engine is switched off, I can then engage the alarm, ie the indicator lights flash and the red light in above the glove box flashes again.

Any thoughts gratefully received!

I had a Piaggio alarm on my uk spec bike and had similar issues after the bike sitting for a while. I couldn't find anyone who knew anything about them so sort of gave up trying to sort it out. If I was riding regularly it worked as expected and I used it but after a break it took some fiddling to reset it.

I now live in a city where I don't have to worry about an alarm on my bikes so have not had to install one.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your first post.

I know that at least the older versions of the original Vespa alarm system switch to a power-saving mode (so-called utility mode) after 72 hours.

Look for a manual for the original Vespa alarm system, it describes this in detail.

Important thing to understand:

the immobiliser is standard and is part of the ecu. it normally stops flashing the light after a couple of days but is still functional.

the alarm is the optional extra.
