    Fair enough: what should I do then? I’m in the west-indies (where the alarm is installed) & will not return to the UK for 3 months. I doubt if I can source spare internal batteries here in Tobago. Could the fault be something unrelated to battery problems?

    Short the bell tamper out in the control panel or call an alarm co unfortunately.

    Link between T and A [SCB]
    Leave the A wire in or both, but do not remove the A, that's supplying a -ve hold off to the bell.

    The manual does actually show a factory fitted link in that position.
