    Have you tried to disable the internal sensors by pressing the button next to the drivers seat on the pillar? This will disable the sensors for if you have left a dog or child in the car but keeps the doors/boot/bonnet enabled. Give this a go and if the alarm doesn't go off then you probably have a broken internal sensor.

    I have checked vag com and its just this code iv taken the siren out and unplugged and replugged in and left loose in the car and now the alarm has not gone off ??

    The Siren was loose on the bracket and was turning around . I am not sure what else to check as i dont want to put it all back until this is solved .

    Why dont you get in the bot with the loose alarm, close the boot and lock/arm the system then wiggle the cable going to the siren to see if there is a dogey connection.

    Have had this fault showing since I purchased Vagcom, keep clearing and it keeps returning. However the alarm is in full working order so it doesn't bother me too much.

    In the bottom right hand corner, just near the bonnet release "button?" there are two torx screws holding in plastic trim and another bolt.. take this off and you'll reveal all of the wiring to do with the door locking modules etc.. check the earth points and make sure they are all strong... sounds like some wire has come loose, if its intermitant.. if you have no luck, i have a genius of an auto electrictian if your local to london/berkshire area.. give me a PM.
