Re: nissan maxima 2001 panic alarm goes off for no reason
Hello, I had the same problem with my 2001 Maxima. The dealer suggested new key fobs, but the eventual fix was the car battery. When the battery is on the way out, the voltage drop is enough to set it off, just as it would if there was a voltage spike when someone breaks in. I have no problems now!

When you say remote is damaged??? How is it damaged?? If it has gotten really wet or broken it is possible that if near the car meaning close enought the remote could be activating the alarm itself. Some of those remotes have a panic button on them and or can act as panic by holding two button same time
fluctuation in voltage on the car will do this also a weak remote battery will also. If this is aftermarket alarm set the shock sensor a litle higher. BUT if this is at night when the vehicle is alone I wouldnt shut it off because someone may be tripping the alarm so you will shut it off and then they can get into your car or possibly steal it which is an old thieves trick.
Hey, I bought my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE brand new back in July 1994 with factory installed alarm, it just doen't make any sound when you arm or disarm it with remote. The only way you can tell whether it is armed or disarmed is from the lever position of your doors and the blinking red light under the dash. Only the newer versions of Nissan/Infiniti's has the "Audio/Silent" mode button on the remote which allows you to activate/deactivate you car alarm with an audiable sound or no sound at all. No worry, there is nothing wrong with your remote or car alarm.
