just remembered from somewhere about the bonnet switch. open the bonnet and push it down, then try locking.

if the interior light goes on when you open a door, and off when you close them its not 1 of the 4 door sensors

chances are it will be the bonnet sensor, with the bonnet up, look along the front for the sensor/plunger, and there should be 1 wire connected underneath it, if you remove this wire (and make sure it doesn't earth on anything) the try the alarm again

before when you had the 4 beeps, if you left the alarm armed, would the alarm eventually sound?

i'd expect it should, and if now it doesn't i'd guess it is correct

Easy test, shut everything up, alarm the car, leave it for a few minutes then unlock the door with the key and open it, see if the alarm sounds
