Default V40 Alarm

hi there, i have a 1998 volvo v40 1.9se - last night at 4.am the alarm went off for no reason, i reset it and it went off again, so i left the car unlocked and it locked itself few mins later and again alarm went off, so i used the key to lock the car and all was well. is there any kind of problems or faults that can occur with the alaram system? thanks. martin

The door lock will go bad and cause the problem you have.
