Alarm goes of when locking using the remote

Hi- can anyone out there help?
Last night when I tried to lock my WJ using the remote key fob it set the alarm off. I could not 'silence' the alarm using the key fob or by putting the key in the ignition.
When using the remote the central locking locks and unlocks it just sets of the alarm. It doesn't matter which of the two remotes I use either. So I guess the problem is with the Jeep and not the remote?
I can lock the Jeep using the lock switch on the door panel and use the remote to unlock without any problems.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas what the problem is and how to fix?

My first guess would be the common broken wire in the rubber boot to the door. The alarm still thinks the door is open so goes off. If my alarm goes accidently (forgot son in car is the norm!) off it usually takes several goes with the remote to stop it. Dont know why buy its performs fine every other way so Ive never bothered to investigate.
Pull back the rubber boot and check those wires.....just a guess but not a lot else to go on without seeing the car.

Thanks- I've had a look at all the doors the wires all seem to be in good condition.
With our WJ it will not lock if there is a door open it usually jest peeps, a bit like when you get an activation and then unlock it.
This is the alarm going too rather than the horn sounding.

OK- it's been a while, but I finally got to go to an Indi to plug into the diagnostics.

No codes showing for alarm activations. The prognosis is a fault with the siren module which is temporarily disconnected. The fob now locks and sets the alarm.
I presume that either the module is faulty or the in built battery has died.
I guess these are Stealer parts only and needs a whole siren module or can the battery be replaced?
