I've had this twice now.

1st time i was told it was down to low voltage on the cars battery so they swapped out the battery for a new one (that was in May after only having the car a few weeks).

Not had it again up until last week and it happened again. Alarm sounds for no reason, keeps going off while driving then couple of days later the front and rear heated seats go off. I've tested the battery and it is low again so booked in for tomorrow.

I'll show them this thread and see what they say this time.

Had same problem, alarm siren on and off, then stopped after numerous attempts with remote. Now seat heating not working. Does anyone know the exact fault, ie: software, or hardware? Dealer no knowledge of fault. Any info would be much appreciated.

I think some dealers know the fault they want you to run out the warranty then hit u hard with big bill later on

You're getting very cynical these days Pacmania.
