Never had this problem before in the 5 years I have owned the car but this year all the on line insurance companies are refusing to insure the car unless it has a security device. I have had the alarm removed when I first got the car as I was having problems with the car opening itself.

So does it have an immobiliser. Its a 92 9000CDE.

I have also just bought a 9-5, give me 9000 to work on anytime!!! What happened to all the space under the bonnet

Even if not mandatory, most companies will discount the premium for having an approved immobiliser fitted. A Thatcham Cat 2 will suffice, and is cheaper than a full alarm, and will probably save you money over the years.

VSS fitted from MY95 onwards I believe, standard on Griffin and Aero, extra cost option on CS and CSE for MY95, standard on CSE from MY96 I believe.

Yeah I had to get a Cat 2 immob fitted to my 1991 9K before anyone would insure it, but the cost wasn't too bad.

The stupidest one like that was when I had my £200 XR4i, a couple of companies told me I had to get a Cat 1 installed!
I told them I'd be worried about people breaking into my car and stealing the immobiliser if that was the case.

I also asked with the 9K if it would still be required for 3rd party, fire and theft. Answer: yes. Reason? Well, if someone steals your car and knocks someone down, your insurance may be liable!
So, I said, let me get this straight. If you borrow your mate's car without asking, you're not insured, but if you steal it, you are? Answer: yes!

Insurance: devoid of logic since 1784
