    I had this fault on mine, kept me awake all night! Problem was the boot lock sensor connection had been eroded and telling the car the boot is open when it was shut, hence alarm kept goin off. This was down to poor audi build on water channels! Strip your boot trim and it will probably be the same fault. I had to change the boot lock and not the wiring luckily.

    Had exactly the same with the mrs A3, the plug that goes to the microswitch was soaking wet, this is the switch which tells the car if the boots open or shut!

    lock it with the key and then the alarm is not on , at least until you get it sorted , stick a crook lock on if you have one , if you don't .. YOU SHOULD !

    perhaps just the cold freezing soem things up, i couldnt get my petrol cap to shut teh other day, applied a little heat and it worked fine again, failin that judging by the time youve left it, maybe low charge in the batt, go take it for a long drive then try again

    i was thinking of that too cleaned up took lock off wd 40 sprayed everywhere and the connections and put it back,i did work once as i locked the doors the hazards flashed giving the ok indication but then unlcked then tried again and no flashing lights ! indicating somethings open!

    DOH! THE BATTERY IS DEAD.....on quick charge for 2-3 hours now.
