    Yup it's the battery in the power sounder. You meed to either replace it, or give it a good clean. I think there is a guide somewhere on this site.

    I had a spider living in my a-pillar somewhere that kept moving over the sensors and setting the alarm off
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    The NC-M120 battery described in the how-to is obsolete, but according to another thread on this forum the 3/V150H/4P is a suitable replacement (4-pin).

    If you need to shut your alarm up today instead of waiting 1 or 2 days for delivery from an online stockist, Maplin Electronics stock the 3-pin version of this battery so if you're handy with a soldering iron then you'll easily be able to make it work. Maplin Part number is "BN24", £6.49 each over the counter. But phone your nearset Maplin shop to make sure they've physically got 2 in stock before you travel there.

    And as in the other thread, check what battery you need before buying replacements, yours might be different...

    Doing mine this aft, I'll report back.
