    alarm

    i lock my car, almost exactly ten seconds later it goes off

    i check all my doors and windows and shut properly, lock it again, same thing happens

    it won't stop doing it, absolutely no reason for it

    any suggestions?

    cheers

    Usually take 30 secs to set itself, so I'm finding it odd that it goes off after 10 secs?! Even locking myself inside my S3, and waving about, still takes a good 30secs or so before anything will go off.
