    The problem is after getting the car running (it had a flat battery) when I bought it.If I lock the car with fob which arms the alarm with the light on the rear view mirror flashing,when I unlock it with the fob the alarm goes off for 30 secs so all i can do is lock the central locking with the key and not use the alarm.Does any one know if this means the alarm has gone out of sync due to the battery being flat for months.Or do I need to take it to a dealer(don't really want to)ANY HELP WOULD BE NICE
