My neighbours hate me. Help!!!

So my alarm keeps going off CONSTANTLY. I've seen its a super common fault, but I really don't want to take it to honda as my warranty has run out and they're really into daylight robbery without it (£100 just to drive it into their garage?! No thanks)

Once the car is locked, after about a minute or two the hazards will start flashing- as if it has just locked itself, and then the siren sounds until I unlock it and lock it again. Then it will do the same thing over and over again. Apparently kicking the car doesn't help but I tried!
I had the main battery tested, they said it was fine. Then I gave the car a real good clean and it stopped doing it for a while week- so I cancelled the garage I had booked it into and low and behold, it's started again this morning 😭

Any advice?
I love my civic and this is breaking our relationship! 💔

Don't know anything about the alarm you have but I would start with the basics. Does it have a bonnet and boot switch? If so I would check they along with the door switches all function correctly. After that I would start looking at the ultrasonic sensors if yours has them fitted. Check the wiring to the sensor is all ok and also to the alarm for that matter.

Odds are that unplugging the bonnet sensor will silence the errant alarm.

Pop off the plastic slam panel and have a root around.

Nothing behind those.
I did ask that question about what are they for.

The bonnet position latch sensor is the problem.
Common fault on the civics, like the clutch master cylinder.

Thanks I'll try that later! Took it to a garage and they can't read the diagnostics which is annoying, so gonna have to try everything to avoid a costly honda bill

The actual bonnet latch itself looks OK, but I don't really know what I'm checking for 😢 it's in a garage at the moment, they couldn't help though

Good, under the bonnet catch is an electrical connector that needs unplugging.

Pop off the plastic slam panel to gain better access.

3rd pic looks like the bonnet catch showing the alarm cable, un-clip it, close the bonnet (not that it'll make any difference now) and try re-arming.

This, the lower electrical cable at dead centre;

Good pic's btw

Those are indeed the sensors. Have you tried disconnecting the bonnet alarm cable yet?
