Spurious car alarm sounding

Post by Beanee687 » Thu May 20, 2021 3:45 pm

My C3 Aircross 130 bhp automatic has the manufacturer alarm fitted.
Ok yes it sets when you shut the car and lock it. Yes you can disable the volumetric function by pressing the button down by your right knee within 10secs of switching off the ignition.
But why does it go off when not expected.
If I unlock the car with the touch door handle, then open the rear door it goes off.
If I open the boot by the touch pad on the tailgate, put shopping in the boot, close the hatch, then open the driver's door, remember I have already been in the boot, about 10 secs later it goes off not always but often.
Anyone else suffer this?

I’ve had it a couple of times. Really made me jump.

It happened on my C3 MK3 Flair hatchback and I said to a passer bye "listen to that annoying alarm". She said "it's your car". I didn't even know it had an alarm 😂
