    Is your RF reciever the newest version?

    Alarm fault is more than likely the ultrasonic sensor in the headlining.

    As Above, but the fusebox is a commo0n fial item.

    Also, how are you Drivers Foot Well Carpets?? are they damp at all??

    If so, it could be moisture in the BeCM from leaky O Rings...

    Check the sound insulation under the carpet too, also it doesn't need to condense on the windows for the BeCM to suffer, the metal case the BeCM sits in will be more prone to condensation than window glass.

    The fuse boxes can corrode and burn internally, they are a multiple layer of PCBs. Have a good smell inside the box and look for over-heating especially around the blower relays. If you're good with a soldering iron and PCBs you could consider taking it apart and attempting a repair but a new fuse board is the best repair. If you do take care to replace it with an IDENTICAL one.
    However even if the fusebox is suspect it doesn't mean that you don't have BECM issues so carefully investigate that as well.
