How to disconnect the alarm


Depending if it is a aftermarket or a factory alarm, they should all have fuses that can be removed. By removing the fuse, you may lose your keyless entry option. Most aftermarket alarms have a siren that is usually mounted under the hood in the engine compartment area. I've seen where people have cut the wire going to the siren to disable it but keep the power going to the alarm system to keep the keyless entry still functional if it came with the alarm system.
Factory alarms usually use the existing horn for the alarm. If that is the case, you might need someone who is experienced to disable the circuit so that the horn will not sound if alarm goes off but the horn will still be functional when needed. Hope this helps.

Have 2010 Silverado. battery goes dead randomly. had batt. alt and voltage regulator checked and all is good.


With a multimeter, check for parasitic loss. YOu can google how to do that and it will reveal any power losses when the vehicle is at rest.
Simply a guess here, but I see the year of your vehicle and that might coincide with the failure of any alarm system backup battery, often fitted inside any alarm siren. If you do indeed have such a thing fitted to your vehicle, and if it hasn't been changed in a few years, then try disconnecting it. What often happens is the backup battery in the siren reaches the end of it's life and can no longer store electricity. It begins to draw more current from the starting battery to top itself off, but it can't top itself off any longer, so it continues until the vehicle's starter battery is drained.

Anyway, that's just a guess. Do a parasitic drain test. You should be looking at no more than 0.03 amps. If much higher than this, then pull any alarm sirens off, then recheck. Then pull the stereo fuse and recheck. Keep pulling fuses until you find the one which brings the voltage down to that figure, then you've found your culprit.

It may be easier to just disconnect the battery at night. You could even buy a disconnect switch.
The siren is powered by a 10 or 15amp fuse number 12, but you would still have the hazard lights flashing. That is a different fuse. The actual keyless entry and alarm module gets power from several sources.

My 2004 Hyundai accent's alarm goes off randomly some time after the car is locked


The alarm system has a sensitivity control and it needs to be turned down. This cannot be a factory alarm system?

Alarm is armed but when door is opened no siren


Is there power to the siren? Are the lights flashing? Can you choose to have the siren on or off? If the lights flash and there is no power to the siren it may be the controller. If you have power to the siren then make sure you have good ground at the siren even if you have to run a ground wire from it

How to turn off the alarm,, Changed the battery now the alarm will not go off on my 2001 XG300.


Do you still have your Key Fob? The siren is impossible to turn off without the Key Fob.
Can you start the car? If working properly, the siren will be accompanied by all the marker lights flashing and the car's ignition being disabled.
If you can still start your car, you may have to disable your siren. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
When the battery was installed, did the fuse on the positive side get damaged? Did any wires get pinched or otherwise shorted against the positive terminal or leads? Check all over that area to make sure all is well.
If you absolutely have to, you can pull the siren relay IF it doesn't disable your ignition too. AGAIN! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS A GOOD IDEA, but needs must as the devil drives.
If you disconnect it, get it into the shop as soon as you can. You don't want to be without your anti-theft system for long.
I wish you the best!

Does a 2007 mitsubishi galant have more than one horn


Surprising enough most cars now a days have two horns right next to each other to give a louder sound. I have also heard some people mistake their aftermarket alarm siren as an additional horn. Hope this helps.
