Default alarm, RKE problem horn sounding randomly


i seem to be having a few issues with RKE, firstly the fob has never worked since i bought the car second hand. The rear door locks have been randomly trying to lock/unlock when driving and when car is stood on driveway. I found a thread suggesting removing fuse #3 which seems to have cured the locks clunking, however now the horn is randomly sounding. (this can be once every 10 minutes to once every half hour) Is there a way to somehow disable the alarm system? as i am guessing the horn sounding has something to do with alarm (ive never heard alarm properly go off) thanks

Do headlights flash when horn goes off? I'm wondering if it is the RKE acting up and not the alarm. When you lock via RKE, the horn can toot (and lights flash) - it can be programmed not to, but if your fobs aren't working that's problematic.
DO you get any door symbols on dash?
