Default 2005 V50 Alarm chirping like a bird!!

Hi all

All of a sudden the alarm on my V50 has started going off randomly, and sometimes it doesn't sound properly, it just chirps constantly like a bird!! No warning lights on dash....

Recently had CEM refurbished but this problem didn't start until 3 days after the refurbished CEM was fitted so thinking its not that....

Any ideas?

The alarm can sound for many reasons and you do need Vida to pinpoint which sensor is failing. In my case it was the Mass Movement Sensor located in the roof, replaced with one off ebay and problem gone.
Vida actually lists which sensor is triggering the alarm and when it happened for at least the last 10 occasions.
