    Strange alarm noises

    Twice recently my car has emitted 4 or maybe 5 short high pitched beeps, once after unlocking having been parked and once after unlocking and getting out after stopping (I drive with the doors locked).

    I'm not sure what I'm doing to make it do this, and I'm unable to replicate it.

    The alarm also false alarmed just now. I was sat in the front room and there was no-one around at all, but the full siren and indicators started going off for no apparent reason.

    May be unrelated.

    Anyone know what the beeps are?

    Thanks chaps, I'm going to book it in anyway for the seats as they don't return from being pulled forward for rear passengers very well, I'll mention this as well.

    Sorted, popped along to Lookers St Helens, described the beeps and they managed to fit it in this afternoon for a new sounder. Splendid
