Help local help with my 156 TS

Morning all,
i was just wondering if there's anyone out there that can offer some assistance with my 156.
issue with the alrm, i've getting advice from this site but so far i have not been able to fix it.
to condense the problem in a few lines - the alarm was armed via the keyfob - came back after work and the keyfob would not disarm it any longer. so i opted to follow the advise i opened the car with the key the siren and hazard light where going hell 4 leather, drove home during my driving the car cut out 3 times had to stop then the alarm goes off at random,and now if i open the door the alarm goes off as loud as anything.
Ideally looking for some onsite help a mechanic that can come over to fix or help me with that. if there's any one available please let me know,the car is not driveable since for as long as this factory fittted alarm is armed the engine will cut off and as u can imagine its not safe - also not too keen to go to a dealer because i made numerous calls to seek help and frankly they don't know what could be the issue since they say it could be the key and the second time its the electronics, of course price wise they went from 300 up to 1000 pounds to fix it! i'm hoping that there's someone reasonably local that has enough knowledge to offer me assistance. i'm willing to pay a reasonable price to get this fixed.

i live in walthamstow

Re: local help with my 156 TS

I had a similar problem with my car. The key would unlock the door, but would not disable the alarm. As far as I can tell the fault is within the alarm module itself, so I disconnected it. It's under the left front wing. You have to take some of the internal plastic wheel arches out to get to it.
