Hi, I am Julia, nice to meet you
Expert:  Kevin replied 13 days ago.
Hi Julia I hope you are well. I’m sorry to hear you are having issues with your alarm, I understand exactly how frustrating this can be. The first step here is to get the car connected to a scan tool because we can read from the data the last 4 causes of the alarm being triggered. This very quickly gives info to go about diagnosing the cause. The most common causes are the electronic switch on the bonnet that tells the car if the bonnet is open or closed and the siren is also a very common failure because it has a small battery inside and these leak battery acid and damage the circuit board inside

Hi Kevin, how do I get it connected to a scan tool? Would a Halfords autocentre be able to deal with it?
Expert:  Kevin replied 13 days ago.
Unfortunately Halfords are unlikely to be able to assist with this one and I would recommend a proper garage
