Hello thank you for your question


Does the car still start with the alarm going off?


also there is a common problem with the bonnet catch on these cars the alarm sensor on the catch rust,s out could you have a look at that please and let me know as you may have disturbed it when opening the bonnet if its not been used for some time and may need a clean and some wd40


also please try disconnecting the battery put your key in the ignition turn on ignition then connect battery again this can sometimes re-set the alarm
