    If the alarm is doing wierd things then chances are it's the age old back up battery issue. Over time they leak and corrode the PCB. This usually manifests itself with 3-4 beeps when you first get in the car and then the alarm going off at 3am for no reason, but because the acid can eat into the circuit board then all manner of issues can arise. Just disconnect the thing as it's a totally pointless alarm anyway. Or follow the DIY fix on here, loads of posts about it.
