    Ok this is the 3rd time now, my alarm as gone off. First time a few weeks ago, watching tv and I see my hazards flashing but here nothing. Dint no till the second time it happens, that it must only be around 50db just as well. Now at work, a bloke informs me my alarm is going off again for nothing.

    So does anybody no what or where to look, to solve this problem.

    Cheers

    Check the switches..possibly a busted bonnet or boot switch but could be one of the door ones too.On some they don't like loose change in the centre console so that can trigger it too.....

    Mine was doing that only last night as well!

    Never done it before and it went off twice for about 20 secs before i thought it was probably mine, stood at the window waiting for it to go off again which it did, all this in the early hours about 3.

    If it does it again ill know where to start looking, cheers.

    This is not entirely related but...

    There is a guy at my local gym... his car alarm goes of all the time while he is training. He swears blind it never does it anywhere else he parks (work/home etc) just the gym. Weird... think the car misses him...
