Mobile phone setting off Alarm?

My 156 alarm started randomly going off today. All windows and doors were shut as will the boot.

I unlocked it, checked it all was good. Re-locked it and it went off again 2 minutes later.

When I checked again I had left my mobile in there, could that set it off? Since I have taken it out it has all stopped, lol.

Possible. If the car has a volumetric alarm and the mobile vibrated. Could do. More likely a coincidence. Mine goes off randomly if the sun shines on it at a particular angle. No rhyme or reason.

I had this happen on a Toyota Celica - I wish my memory was better because I can only vaguely remember the details! I think you're right that it was your mobile causing it - IIRC, on the Celica there was some sort of 'module' related to the alarm that was located beneath a storage tray in the centre console, and if anything with metal content was left there it would trigger the alarm erroneously.
