    Dodgy sensor by the screen/rear view can cause this.

    Have you had the front interior light out ??. I had this as well, I did the light mod years ago and was fine until a couple of months ago. Check 30amp fuse. Check the switch under bonnet just above the air box, mine whet off when i took out the interior to check connections. Funny thing was when I had finished it was still showing warning. Went out in the car later and all was fine and has been since. So not really sure where the problem was. Just happy for it to be gone.

    As you've got an estate (according to your profile), it could also be a high resistance connection or a break in the rear window sensors or rear heated screen (the alarm uses this as a break detector).

    Check your rear heated screen doesn't have a break in any of the lines anywhere and check the rear window sensors (you need to remove the side supports in the boot to see them.

    You can see the two wires on my passenger side one in this picture (sorry only pic I had to hand).

    Although, if you also keep a young lady in the boot, it might be her trying to escape thats setting off the alarm

    Yeah, people tend to frown upon that.

    If it is the bars on the windows, I think the stuff you can get to paint on to repair heated windows will work ok. Can't remember what it's called though. Is the siren in the boot plugged in?

    Oops, I uploaded pictures over the top of some others and accidentally over-wrote my original pic in this thread.

    To avoid confusion for anyone reading this thread in future, the picture above is not the one I originally posted which is here...
