If it has an alarm it is aftermarket so not surprising it don't work. If you mean it won't flash the lights and lock/unlock the trunk or won't sound the horn when you push the call button then it probably has broken wires in the harness by the right trunk hinge.

Is this a non-USA/Canada Wing ???

USA and Canadian Wings do not have alarms.

My 2010 Wing has the same problem. I was told to look at the harness as it bends near the trunk lid but haven't got around to it yet. It seems that this is a common problem due to the design of the harness continually bending when opening and closing the lid. I wonder if the design is the same in the new Wing?

Check relay 8 - pull it out and swap it with a known good relay, see if that makes any difference.
