You might find that PC Plod takes more of an interest in you/your vehicle if the larm goes off while in motion!
Sorry to drag this post back up, but I had this exact thing this morning (minus the PC Plod interest...).

I have already unplugged the siren (the same issue as Dexter - alarm going off at 2-3am and upsetting the neighbours ), so at least I wasn't going along the road with a screaming car!

Upon arming and disarming the alarm, the red LED blinked four times, stopped, blinked four times again and then turned off - I gather this is the "your alarm went off" notice?

I have taken the car to a local "Renault specialist" who claims to have reduced the sensitivity - it obvoiusly didn't help!

Any ideas where the bonnet sensor is located (and don't say on the bonnet - a bit more detail is needed!)? Is there anything else I should be checking?

Many thanks for any advice...
