Spatial alarm issue

So out of the blue my alarm is going off everytime the fob locks it.

It works fine if you lock it with the key so I can only think it's the spatial alarm triggering.

Currently all I did was recharge a semi flat battery and unplug and replug in the cig lighter fuse (which works fine btw). The interior lights all turn off as normal.

However I was fiddling with the cubby holes and wondered if that's triggering it now.

However upon dismantling them to find any loose wires i'm baffled to find zero wiring to trigger the sensors if you open them in the car.

How the hell does the spatial sensor actually work then? Magnets?

Also is there a known fix for this? A common cause like a loose wire somewhere?

Problem Solved.

Whacked the area where the volumetric sensor is really hard with my fist and it now works fine.

I was looking at all these threads on taking the entire t-bar out, hiring an auto electrician to de-tune the sensor sensitivity.

I thought... have I tried hitting it yet?

I hope the problem stays away.
