lock the car with you inside and.move around normally sets it off if it has one

Smash the window.

It will have an alarm

Try to steal it...

Mine does not have an alarm, only an immobiliser!

Kick the door whilst it's locked

When it beeps check to see if there's a light on the dashboard - possibly an immobiliser issue...

Which deals with the immobiliser... I assume all the doors are closing properly if so read this thread carefully: google.es/url…FQQ

yes nothing wrong with opening./closing doors except when open i need to press it once to open driver door or 2-3 times to open all

the link you posted is about not being able to start the car? i dont have any issue with starting the car just wana know if the car has alarm

I doubt it. If you had then it would of gone off at some point. I'd say it has a factory fitted immobiliser.

try ringing or calling into a renault dealer

i guess i'll do that

open window and lock car. now stick head in car. look up to driver side and passenger side for What looks like little mics in top corner of windscreen.. ps if it didn't go off with your head in the car I'd say you don't have one. other things you can check are for stickers on windows to say car has alarm installed...

another idea, get someone to sit in the car, you lock it from the outside wait 30 seconds and get them to open the door from the inside.

Errr ,no. Remote locking and an alarm are two different things.

iy doesn't have the mic things

Don't unlock the car with the remote key fob. Unlock the door by inserting the key in the door lock and unlocking. If it has an alam, it should go off after few secs.

I have a 53 reg VW Polo with a remote locking key fob and sometime ago the remote unlocking fob stopped working. I had to unlock my car with the Key in the door. The alarm went off after about 10 secs, I had to start the car to turn the alarm off. I didn't know my car had a alarm until this happened. Now it goes off when there's heavy thunder storm or wind.
