About the indicators flashing and bleeps, well, my 2000 Laguna doesn't bleep but does flash - so no alarm.

My Espace bleeps and flashes.

As Chris had said, lock your car with the remote, then after 30 seconds or so (to allow it to activate properly), unlock the door with the key and open it.... if the alarm works, it'll go off immediately.

On my Espace however, if I unlock the door with the key and open it, the alarm doesn't go off immediately, it just bleeps as a warning to tell me it's alarmed... and IF I don't disarm it with the remote within a few seconds, then the alrm goes off.

Hope that helps.

How about getting into the vehicle - get someone to lock it from the outside and then try to get out. Better still leave it round the back of the local kebeb house late on a Saturday night and I'm sure you'll find many willing helpers to asist you
