    Bonnet alarm plunger switch is a common place fail on vehicles of that age.
    If the alarm keeps going off try disconnecting this switch & see if that cures the problem?

    thanks for the reply checked all doors bonnet ect. as you said and it has not gone off as yet. so hopefully just a dodgy switch. i was also told it may be the internal alarm battery running down, does anyone know where this is located just for future reference?? thanks again. daryl
