    you got the fixed key or flip key?

    When you lock the car with the key, does the pump carry on a bit longer than normal?

    I got any issue where mine randomly locks and unlocks. That only happens If i plug the rear boot latch in. with that unplugged it all works fine.
    It might that causing your issue.

    I also had the passenger window opening randomly. replacing the remote battery and recodding worked fine.

    cheers for the reply scott , took it for a run at the weekend to charge the battery over the course of the day the central locking and alarm did some random things the eventually sorted itself out - maybe its like the ecu and forgets how to work if you disconnect the battery
