    in the drivers door, there are 2 switches, Anti Jack and Internal sensor, my advise is to try the anti jack switch 1st,

    flick the switch so the led comes on and shows its selected, then lock the car up with nobody in it and see if that stops it,

    if that fails,

    try the internal sensor off and lock it up again,

    see if one of them solves the issue before we start going down any other roads just yet,

    also has the passenger side foot well been wet lately ?

    A VCDS/VAG.COM scan will tell you what's setting the alarm off - these errors are logged in Convenience Module.
    Could be any sensor as Turkster has advised or a duff micro switch in any of the locks (bonnet or boot).

    well igot to the cause of my problem,,,
    SOME TOSSERS TRYD TO KNICK MY CAR,,,,, I only noticed yesterday morning after posting the first pose on here about it,
    the chrome trim at the top of my drivers side door wasnt fitting proply, it was sort of lifted up in the midle and there was a few scratches at both ends of the trim where someones had a screwdriver under it, after sorting this out i thought tossers, at least they didnt get the car,
    then after the alarm started to off againe all by its self, i thought i would take it for a scan using vagcom to see whats up with it,
    it was only when driving on the way to have it done that i realised i had moved the seat forward after getting in the car thismorning!!!!!!!,
    nobody else uses my car and the seat hardly eva gets moved,, then it hit me and made my blood boil,,,,they got in my motor!!!
    this as you can expect realllllly p155ed me off!
    i cant belive they got in....
    nothing was taken from the car so i sopese thats somthing, but never mind that, i still want to see if i can remember the boxing and karate i did years ago on the sod that tryd to knick it,,,,

    vagcom shown up the boot lid had been messed about with and the sensor was/is trigering the alarm, also the the drivers door lock was going mental,, they must have put somthing down between the window and the inside if the door and hit a wire or somthing on the lock???
    after clearing all the codes off and testing it again, the boot is was still playing up, everything was lined up ok but after the alarm had beed trigerd a boot open symble came on on the dash,
    after a lot of messing about the guy sorted it out, and it stayd ok, untill lastnight at 2:30am when BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP!!!!,
    as you can imagion i was up out of bed and out side like a shot!,but not a signe of anyone, while watching the car it went off againe.
    i took it back to the place that scaned it today and the boot lid sensor was trigering it same sa before, but we saw the catch itsself was loose, after doing it up and re scaning and testing, and waighting.... everything is looking ok now, fingers crossed, as i need some sleep!

    but people keep your eye on your cars!!!!!

    after telling the police about it, i was told its happening a lot this sort of thing, people are getting in somehow and messing with the port for the obd, in some cases ripping it nout all togeather, and there after audi and vw's, there was a report in the manchester eveinig news about it, a few people have been smacked over the head at light and had to hand there keys over and other things like that,,,,, not good at all and very worrying!
    so pleeeaaasssee, keep your eye on your motor, more so if you live in thr greater manchester areaa,,
    but not that i am this condoning this or or anything, but remember police need proof, all we need is a bassball bat and an excuse!!!
    sorry about the long post but dont say youv not been warnd if somthing happens to you car!!!

    could be a disconect the battery job and lock the doors by the key, i would go about this in this way, open the bonnet, lock the car so all doors are locked, disconnect the cars battery and close the bonnet, the cars alarm will then be de activated, but you wont be hearing the alarm go off all night, in the morning open the drivers door with the key and open the bonnet and re connect the battery and get it fixed if you can,

    every time the alarm gos off, get a boot open sysble on the dash, i took the cover off from under the boot lid last night (at bloody 2;45am)
    and it was wet inside,,, it did look like condenstion more then anthing else , but i dont sopose its doing it any good,
    i have got it booked in for next wensday to hopefully get it sorted,, but thats days away
    i dont want to keep disconecting the battery and having to put it back on all the time, and i could realy do with the car for work,,
    i am going to have another look at this boot lock today and see what i can sort out,, funy thing is it duznt seem to to off during the day or in the dry???
    lol maybe the car dosent like the dark or the rain!!!!!
    if i get a new boot lock. will it come with the micro switch on it, or can i just disconect the switch and stop the alarm going off??????

    ohhh 1 other thing, i have been looking about for answers to this problem, and came across somthing on the phone (wap) that said the beep bep sound it makes isnt the alarm?? its a warning sound to let you know theres a faulty or open lock/door/roof?

    If it's killed a second battery in two weeks then it must have been a duff battery, either that or you've got serious issues.

    How did you get on analysing those codes?
