Hi there , good afternoon o you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you today

Ok as you mention the drivers door open message is appearing this is what will be the cause of your alarm issues

Most commonly it is a fault within the drivers door latch micro switch which tells the bcmii (body control module ) that the door is open /closed

The other point of issue can be corrosion in the drivers A-pillar to door connector

If this connector is ok /clean from moisture , corrosion then I would suspect a faulty drivers door latch

If you give me your registration number I can check your warranty expiry etc

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you

Hi there unfortunately I cannot pull up the vehicles details due to it being a non uk registrared vehicle

But the advice above applies in regards ***** ***** fault with the alarm it will be caused by the bcmii thinkingbthe drivers door is open when it's closed/locked thus thinking a theft is happening

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward ie after a fault code check has been done

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
