Datatool S4 Red Alarm Problems

My datatool S4 Red alarm started going off the other day in the garage and would not stop. I had to disconnect it from the bike and wrap it in three towels until the pre-charge ran out.

What is the best way to try find the source of the problem? I suspect there may be a problem in the electrics that is causing the alarm to go off constantly.

I'd take the thing off permanently but my insurance will go up drastically.

Have you tried the company's website or sending them an email?

leave it on disconnected if the insurance is your only concern... if it gets stolen and recovered the thieving bugger must have got to that first. If not then it's all good

I suspect the humidity and condensation have closed the alarm trigger circuit. Open up the module and see if rust or oxidation have formed. The alarm trigger would be vibrations sensed by the vibration sensor ? I would trace back from this sensor to where ever it is going and check the entire path.
