    Dunno mate but i'd recommend closing the drivers door before locking it again, it cant be very secure left like that

    There would appear to be something wrong with it. If you unlock the boot from the keyfob shutting the boot is sufficient to lock it without needing to use the remote.

    Maybe you're confusing it by trying to lock it when it's already locked Do the indicators not flash when you shut the boot? Does sound like something's not 100% though. If you don't press the middle button, can you still open the boot?

    do you have a factory alarm, or an aftermarket one?

    If it is not factory, sometimes the alarms get confused when the boot is opened while the doors are locked. closing the boot then gives it some wierd error code.

    try locking the doors from the remote with the boot open and you should get a similar sound if you have a non-factory alarm.

    If I close the boot and press the remote button I just get the usual clunk as it tries to lock the already secured lock.
