Warlock WAR3500

Warlock alarms

Or is that a Steal Shield?

I could do a review of the WAR3500 by warlocks, but I’d just be repeating what I said about the Steal Shield SS440. Why? Simple it is exactly the same alarm which has simply been re-branded!

This week I got a call from a gentleman who found his remote had failed on his WAR3500 and he was after a replacement. I was simply going to disarm his alarm by finding the over-ride pin number which is normally stuck on the immobiliser relay inside the alarm case, however, this had been removed and in its place was a Warlock’s sticker which had its own serial number!

Warlock Alarms = Crap Alarms

So I dialled the 0800 WARLOCK number to see if they keep a copy of the over-ride number.

Warlocks hung up on me as soon as I mentioned who I was! Charming hey? I dare say the response had something to do with my previous blog post about them being cowboys!

Anyway, with Warlocks not coming to the party, there was still a simple solution. Get a new SS440 and replace it.

A very simple plug and play change over that worked out about the same price as two new remote controls. The added bonus is a new warranty, two new remote controls and an over-ride pin number.

Oh and just to remind everyone Warlocks are now trading under a 3rd company name after having been struck off the company register twice in the past.  They are also using Obsessive Vehicle Security as a keyword on their website! Tossers, still they aren’t the only ones!

Again I will point out that I have no connection with Warlocks and suggest avoiding them if you like dealing with someone who is trustworthy!

    Plus it has that annoying “welcome all vehicle owners…” voice. An instant reason to exit the site!
