Do you mean the keypad has locked out flashing red, or the alarm has locked on?

If it is the alarm try disconnecting the battery, turn ignition key to Ign, connect the battery.

If it is the keypad flashing red, the power has been lost.
Power is supplied from the double injection relay.

Link to latest circuit diagrams from Gabor.

There is no diagram for 2.0 16v, but is for the auto-gearbox and starter circuit, but the keypad operation I the same for all models.

I believe these are the correct diagrams for your car and Ecu.

Thank you, sorry I'm just getting used to these forums.
The keypad is on static / constant red no matter what I do.

Also is the ignition key talking to the Engine control unit?
Thank you

No. There is no communication from the key. It litterally only unlocks the car and turns the ignition to power the car up.

Thanks for that also when I open a door the headlights flash on and off for a few minutes and a small red light is flashing on one of the switch's on the dash all the time. The red light on the immobiser is on all. Time not flashing.

The headlamps and internal indicator mean the alarm has been triggered. It sounds loke th siren is duff, hence no audible signal.

The keypad showing red means it is waiting for the correct code to be keyed in.
What happens when you press buttons and what when you enter the correct code. Possibly a button has a poor contact so the correct code isn't being seen. Is there a chance liquid has been spilt onto the keypad?

Watch carefully, the red light should blink on each button press.

Try doing an alarm reset.
- disconnect batt+ cable
- all doors closed, IGN off, keys out
- re-connect battery cable, and immediately Lock, then Unlock the car with the Remote (plip). Lock may require two presses of the remote lock button on the fob, to achieve full locking.
- then unlock, and alarm should be reset.

Procedure applies to OE alarm system, 1996-on.

If the plipper doesn't work... Leave the ignition on second position take the negative terminal off the battery and reconnect it. It will then also reset the alarm. If you listen you should hear a rapid flashing ticking of the indicators and alarm ecu box.
