I’ve held the window trap re set and the window works fine. The door doesn’t lock properly and the boot doesn’t open. I just want to cancel the alarm until I can get it fixed properly and the panels replaced.

Dear customer what happens is that in the door there is a sensor that detects when the door is closed or open the problem is that the blow probably descuadró this sensor or descuadró the lock and is poorly closed anyway the system that causes you the sound is directly involved in the locking system central locking system so it cannot be disconnected as in older vehicles by removing a fuse or disconnecting a bugle here what I recommend is that you go to a brass and paint shop as these shops can correctly square the door and lock and they can also check if the sensor is out of square.
