    Firstly i cant disarm the alarm fully. It will arm properly as it should. (doors lock, indicators, led solid, then flashes) Then i disarm it, seems fine then 30 seconds later it arms again. The doors dont lock but if i put my hand through the window it go's off.

    It also drives okay, ignition on, no problem.

    Back to your suggestion. I can only do this in the 30 second gap from when i disarm the alarm. I unplugged the module, both plugs, then disconnect the battery. The siren go's into full screech. When i reconnect the earth connection on the car battery, the siren stops.

    Question.

    On the bonnet pin there are two spade connections, but there is only one wire connected. Is this correct?

    Yes, only one wire, it is just an earth.

    When it arms after 30 seconds and then "goes off" is this loud regular beeping or full blast continuous siren?

    If you don't put your hand through the window what happens?

    What happens is you press the grey button to disarm and unlock the car. Everything seems okay, then 39 seconds later the led next to the gear lever comes on. If you either put your hand through the window, or open the door its the full continuous siren.

    If i were to guess, i'd say you disarm the alarm, it runs through its tests, realises something wrong and rearms/ sets the alarm on again.

    btw, thanks for your help so far. I appreciate it.

    It sounds like it is auto-arming, it would never do this because of a fault but it can be programmed to do it. Prior to the wing job everything worked OK I take it?

    I've known a similar symptom on arm rather than disarm and it was the fob battery. Illogical I know but it seemed it just wasn't getting the right signal. Worth a try!
