Another mystery solved
#1
    After finding the cruise control unit and finding 2 different sirens under the bonnet, I was looking for the alarm box and figured it must be behind the glovebox. 
I never found the 2 white pins I’d been told to remove, but did find some hidden screws underneath. Anyway, spotted a black box tied up under the glovebox and removed it. It’s a system made by Meta who seem to make them for all sorts of vehicles. I’ve got no way of operating this system and the wiring doesn’t look factory (unless it was Friday afternoon after lunch n a couple of bottles of vino) so I’d like to get rid of it. 
Now the big question, if it’s an immobiliser just taking it out will probably stop the van working. 
Any advice ? Anyone done similar job ? Any alarm gurus on here ?

If it's a 1.9D, the immobiliser is fairly basic, it's just on the fuel pump IIRC, but removing the alarm will depend on how many other parts of the electrics the alarm is wired into, for example the starter relay.

Like you wrote in an earlier post, someone certainly went to town with add-ons.

I have t even got to the solar panel and blown air heating yet !
I’ll have to check the wiring diagram but getting all the bloody tangled wiring out is a nightmare. I’m also removing the built in satnav system so you can imagine just how many wires are tied up n stuffed up under the dash !
I’ve just welded the floor pan on drivers side and painted it. The paint uses synthetic bases thinners and inhaling that stuff is something I’ll try n avoid.
Where can I get those round bungs that fit into the floor and inner sills ?
I think having a couple missing has lead to the floor rotting through and I want to stop it from going again

Do you mean grommets?

Not sure of the Citroen part numbers but if you can measure the internal hole size they're pretty generic e.g.

You should be able find some grommets on the bay or amazon. Also plenty of places selling them direct, a quick search will throw a few up. Look for 'blind grommets'

Here might be useful..

Blanking grommets it is then. Just popped out n tried to start the van. There’s the usual whirring noise but won’t turn over. So, I’ll try n tease the rest of the alarm loom out n see what wires have been cut

Whirring noise. as in starter motor? Maybe the solenoid is faulty?

No not starter. Sounds like a fuel pump. My pug 407 does it sometimes.
Another thing is, with the seats removed I noticed the emissions light was on. Don’t remember it being on before so is it affected by the wires under seat being disconnected ?

Just looked back in one of your earlier posts, it's a 2.0HDi?
Must confess that mine was M59 so not sure what's up but would think the wires under the seat are only for the pre-tensioners & seatbelt warning light. The 2.0HDi M59 does not have a fuel pump apart from the HP fuel injector.

Well, it’s a noise I’ve heard on my 407 and it sounds like it’s coming from the bulkhead area somewhere.
