Hello, and Happy new year !
I’ve got a tracker in my car, (‘03 c4) never used by me and it’s obviously draining my battery so I’d like to remove or disconnect it. Could anyone p.m me on where or how to find it, my car won’t start if left for barely 2 weeks and the battery was new last winter. Even have a small solar charger plugged into cig lighter socket and have taken out fuse for stereo in case that was draining it.
Cheers

Suspect you'll have to contact Tracker to be absolutely sure of its location.

When Tracker fitted a new unit and battery a few years ago, the engineer went to the 'usual' place and couldn't find it. He contacted his head office who keep on record the location of the fitted unit and went straight to it.

He confirmed there are about 5 places in a 911 that they will fit a tracker, chose the location at random and record the location. Contacting Traker may save you pulling the interior of your car apart unnecessarily.

Exactly this.. mine is 15 years old (tracker) and the OPC couldn't find it when I last had it serviced so contacted Tracker themselves. Took a fair while to get the location from them as it's that old they had to dig it out - took about a month! Now have the location for it to be removed.
