There were quite a few problems on the earlier Galaxies . Try disconnecting the bonnet switch and also check the wiring harness on top of tailgate where it passes through for damaged / broken wiring .

Try pressing the lock button on the remote twice in succession (within 2 /3 secs ) and this will disable internal motion sensors in case this is causing the alarm to activate . Works with some cars.
