    could be the power sounder (its part of the alarm) - i had the same problem on a frontera, its located near the left front side wheel arch, Cost about £250 to get it replace by vaux - mine beeped because it had water in it from when i pressure washed the arches...

    It is your power sounder, the internal batteries have gone flat. Would be covered under warranty.

    I would take a guess and say its to do with battery back-up on the alarm

    It's the battery back up system for your factory alarm so that when the battery is dissconected the alarm will still sound
