Every time I try and lock the car the alarm sounds. This results in me being unable to lock the car. I have changed the battery hoping this would fix the issue but it didn’t.

Peugeot 308 mk2 2015 alarm going off

I had the alarm going off about a minute after I locked the car . Also noticed orange flashers not flashing when setting alarm. seemed to lock ok on autolock..
Found the small black bonnet switch broken off it's mount.. It's a switch near bonnet catch inside a plastic cover. when replaced alarm worked perfect...
