    Default Alarm going off randomly

    Hi
    i hope someone can help me with an issue.
    I have recently had a tyre changed ( drivers rear) and since then, the alarm has gone off at random times.
    I've never had a problem with the alarm and changing tyres before
    Do you think there is any thing related to this and the alarm?
    Also is there a way of finding out which sensor has triggered the alarm?

    Thanks
    Roger

    Not if he hasn't got the system check, or only the basic stereo display.

    or it might be heated rear screen, iirc the alarm checks the screen elements in case of breakage, is you rear heater working ok, might be worth checking the connections at either side

    Rear screen heater works ok.
    I thought it might be the sensor under the bonnet, so adjusted the bonnet to shut tighter and seemed to work for a while until yesterday.
    Alarm still randomly going off.
    It seemed to start after I had the rear driver tyre changed.
    Is there anything around there that could be at fault?
    thanks
