Renault Master Alarm keeps going off!

Anyone know how to disable the alarm on a Renault Master van? Mine has started going off every 10 minutes or so! Turn it off, ten mins later off it goes! Even if I turn off the motion sensor inside the van the alarm still goes off. Tried leaving the van open and alarm off, but without me touching the key fob the van is locking itself, and then off goes the alarm a few minutes later! If poss I need to disable it completely otherwise the neighbours are going to lynch me.....

Infamy, infamy! They've all got it in for me!

Could the remote button be stuck? starter or remote battery going flat possibly, tried using the other remote?

Not a common base vehicle so clutching at straws, maybe Google the problem too.

Let us know what it was when you manage to sort it.

Starter battery showing 12.4v on the monitor. Tried both fobs with same result. The sliding side door hasn't always shut properly and that will set alarm off but I've made sure that it's fully engaged on this occasion and alarm still goes off.

Will disconnecting the earth lead on the battery shut it off?

Should do.

Not sure, most modern alarms will detect voltage drop, and it could be that is the problem, it might reset it though, bug it's all guesswork, I should have thought of this earlier for which I apologise, but I'd ring an auto alarm mobile guy/guyess to come out and sort you'll need to Google for a local of national outfit.

We had similar problem had to get a new engine battery that solved the problem, our battery was showing 12.1 but there was a cell gone in it

Have disconnected battery for now! It's too late and too cold to bugger about outside I will go see my local grease monkey in the morning. He's pretty good and can maybe do a diagnostic to see if anything shows up. Mrs C has pointed out that our car also locks itself if you de-activate the alarm but then don't open any of the doors, so that's probably not connected to the overall problem. All quiet for now....

An update! Diagnostics revealed no issues with the alarm system. The battery is fine. My man thinks the sliding side door may be the cause as it doesn't always shut properly. I've had issues with it on and off for a year or so. If the central locking contacts on the side door are slightly 'out' then this may activate the alarm. Of course the problem with intermittent faults is that they are hard to tie down. Anyway I have discovered that the siren is easy to disconnect without losing any of the other functions of the alarm system so for now at least I am not in fear of disturbing the entire neighbourhood.

Forgot it was a PVC, our Relay had a similar problem due to the sliding door tracks being worn, the door looked okay but was about 2mm out, so I took off the body connector plate and put a 2mm shim in, problem solved, the contacts on mine were spring loaded, so it didn't cause any problems, would it be possible to do that with yours?

We had water on the back of one of the sensors that caused random op's, also the bonnet switch got salt water inside and started playing up.
