    Standard BMW alarm?
    Standard e46 EWS2 Ron.

    Phillip, you can disable the ultrasonic sensor inside the car so that you can isolate it from the main alarm, as it may have become too sensative. To do this, press the lock/unlock button on your keyfob twice in quick succession. The red 'clown nose' light under the interior mirror will stay on for a couple of seconds letting you know that the sensor has been disabled. Now see if your alarm goes off as you say.

    Also if it is the standard alarm then you can have the codes read for it, it should have saved a fault code, any good BMW specialist or main dealer will be able to do this for you.

    Will be worth checking the obvious, I can't recall the type of bonnet switch they have but check it to be on the safe side. Also does the central locking work all fine including boot? I've known the wires at the boot hinge cause alarm problems before where they've shorted out
