Place Key in Backup Location" message following alarm activation

Please help, I’ve just recently purchased a St line x on 18 plate and my alarm keeps going off and asks me to place key on back up location. I can’t seem to get it to stop the alarm going off so I don’t know what I’m doing wrong?

Seems the key "Backup Location" is in the bottom of the Armrest Storage.
How many keys do you have for the car ? Is your car Keyless Entry & Start or just Keyless Start ?

Not my post but I’m having the same problem and it’s driving me mad. Not only does it scare the **** out of me every time but it’s also so loud and annoying going off every time when I leave for work early. I’ve had the car a year, it started doing this every once in a while in the last six months or so but the last week it has been every single time I open the car, I could have the key in my hand while touch the door for keyless entry and the alarm still blares until I use the buttons on the key to lock it then reopen with that. Any ideas?
