I had that one day while parked in the Tesco car park. The wind and rain while I had been in the store was like a mini typhoon. At that time there were discussions about this over on *** and they seem to say very similar things about the storm setting it off. I have never had this since.

I've had it before, didn't think nothing of it to be honest, the likelihood of a theft is minimal, thats what we have insurance for I guess Smile

Hey guys, I had this warning once, left the car in a parking for 3 hrs, when i got back i got theft message. It turned out to be my car battery Wink I got all sorts of weird messages, one of them was the engine power reduce and other weird stuff.
Solution :
Replaced the original GM battery with a VARTA. After that no weird messages appeared Wink

I have an Opel astra sports tourer break 1.7 110hp

BTW: i have no alarm system on my car Big grin

[MENTION=2]tucpal[/MENTION] I don't know mate Big grin ))) I went to the service and asked them if the car has an alarm system on it and they told me it doesn't :( But the strange thing is that theft alarm Big grin
I bought the car from Germany 1 year ago, its 2011 model. I also asked them if there is a software update to the car ? they answered by telling me there is no software update showing on their computers Big grin. I should go to another service to double check if i have an alarm system on it. I really think that in this country everyone wants to steal from you something Smile

BTW: I'm from Romania Wink & i'm not a gypsy Big grin )))

Very strange but good to point that the battery could cause it.

You will be able to tell if you have an alarm as there with be the ultra sonic sensors in the roof near the interior light.

No the grilled bits you have on yours will be where the microphone sit's if you have factory fitted Bluetooth.

I have.  Just sat and watched (from a distance) the scrote I spotted at 4.20am (UK) return and loosen the front wheel nuts using some battery powered device that does all 5 at once.  Waited while he was long gone and went to check and the car had indeed detected the attempted theft ( although his motive was probably more sinister than stealing the wheels.  

Perfect image on my CCTV though. Couch

They're bastards aren't they! I've just installed a camera over looking the drive. I've got it recording to an NVR and backing up to the cloud just in case that was to ever get stolen. The problem is, if they want it they'll take it irrespective of what systems we have etc.
