    Replace battery ASAP.
    screwfix is quickest place to get one.
    How old is the old battery ? may have damaged a resistor on pcb ?

    Battery is in the control panel
    Should be 2.1ah battery which you can purchase from screwfix the DIY chain.
    Search screwfix in your area.

    You need to replace the battery
    To stop open control panel and remove battery. Reset with code.
    Go and get replacement battery and re fit battery.
    It will keep setting the alarm off until you remove or replace battery.
    You will need to install a battery otherwise every time you have a power cut the alarm will activate
