Check the trunk, check the hood. One of them is probably not properly closed. I second your opinion about the search feature, it could use some improvement in terms of the accuracy and completeness.

Yes could be the dreaded trunk switch. See if you trunk locks like waGner says. If it does check all door also. If everything locks then may be you lost the setting for the horn to beep which will have to be reprogramed using a VAG tool. Did you disconnect your battery at any point?

When my trunk microswitch went out I noticed that my alram wasn't setting because the car thought that the trunk was still open even though it wasn't. $13.00 part and 30 minutes to fix.
