My K is parked right underneath my study, in which I am working and THREE times in the last 10 minutes the alarm horn has gone off.
Eventually stops before I can get to the car.
The car is NOT LOCKED, therefore the alarm is not set.
Nothing moving inside the car. All windows & roof closed. Lights did not flash. Static battery voltage showing 12.5V.
Yet another bluddy electrical gremlin!.
Anyone any ideas????

It's your Skoda dealer.

They've still got your K's details in their showroom iPad.
Their salesperson is trying and trying to make the showroom K do the "honk & flash" via Skoda Connect to show off to some prospective customers and for "some" reason it's just not working.

Better give them a ring ;)

It's just lonely and wants to go for a drive...

Honk and Flash only works within a short distance from the car ..
I was only joking.
But.... I am pretty sure that H&F will work from any distance, as long as Skoda Connect can reach the car and your mobile device can connect with Skoda Connect.

Spoke to dealer and they said Mine was not still on their system and nobody had done what you suggested. It hasn't done it since, so the mystery deepens!
I'm sure all will be revealed on the 9th, when it's in for service.

After. But it hasn't recurred. So I'm not worried.
Can't see that the alarm circuitry would have anything to to with the fly by wire throttle control, which would be dead within 90seconds of the ignition being turned off.
