JAGUAR XJ8 DOOR PROBLEM

1999 Jaguar XJ8

1999 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 123, 00 miles

I bought a used 1999 Jag XJ8 V8. I've had a couple of weeks now and no problems. But, I went out to get in it. I used the black key to unlock the doors and the alarm went off when I opened the door. I closed the door and locked it back up. After about 2 minutes the alarm turned itself off. This sequence of events happened 3 times. I do not have the green key. This has never happened before and I don't remember doing anything different. The only thing I did today was replace the electric anntena. Not the motor, just the anntena.

The green key is only a valet key (doesn't open boot or glove box). You have an issue with the drivers door module by the sounds of it. What happens when you use the remote to lock/unlock?
