    I can lock my car but if the 2 lights are on inside the door the alarm will sound.
    I i noice this when i get out, by pressing them off the car locks fine?

    I have no sign on the dash of any doors/boot are open?

    Any ideas thanks

    When lit they indicate the interior & tilt sensors are switched off. In daily use they're supposed to be unlit.

    If yours are lighting up by themselves your alarm needs looking at.

    Have a look for a VCDS owner in your locality and have the car scanned for errors.
