SOURCE: Hello, I have a 1995 Intrepid and I have no

try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes and then reconnecting it. Not likely, but easy to do. Also look for a burned 'fusible link' in the underhood fuse box or a burned large capacity 'fuse'. TH eheadlights and power seats are high current loads. The door lock problem is likely a door switch not connecting--and will not allow the doors to power lock when the computer thinks a door is open.

Also have Autozone, HiLo, O'Reilly's, and other parts stores test the battery and charging system (It is free). A weak battery or charging system causes low voltage, and the electronics do not like low voltage.

Also ask them to 'pull the codes' for the engine computer and transmission computer. also free. Sometimes things happen that do not turn on th 'check engine' lights, but still point to the problems. The entire 'Intrepid' line and twins have integrated computer systems with 'bugs' in them. A good friend gave up trying to get his fixed--and just quit using the alarm system--the trunk would open after about 1 hour!!. Finally the transmission and its computer started acting up and would start jumping back and forth gears after a few minutes in stop and go traffic. After 3 tear-down , inspect, reassemble efforts by a good transmission shop, they gave up, replaced the transmission at no cost, and it also did the same thing--confirmaing the problem was in the wiring/computer system. He sold the car.

SOURCE: anti theft alarm goes off when no one is around

You have a short in your Electrical system where the alarm connects to your power assist system or a short in your alarm. Pull the fuse for the alarm and if the problem stops it is the alarm if it continues you will need to trace the connections and make sure they are secure and protected by taping them up.

Antitheft system keep goes on I can't start vehicle

Use the remote to deactivate alarm or use key in the door lock to unlock the door. The problem you had is when you lock the door and the alarm activates it must see a disarm signal or else it thinks someone broke the window and used the switch to open the door.

My car battery got dead so I bought new battery and tried to replace the old one. As soon as I reconnected the terminals of the new battery the car started making panic horn noise. Its horn alarm goes on...

On some models you can disable the alarm after you connect the battery by locking and unlocking the driver door with the key.
I would disconnect the horn or pull the relay until you can get the alarm turned off.

2000 blazer keeps locking and unlocking by itself

Sounds like you have a short where you are moving the wiring. Remove tape/wire loom from the harness and see if you find bare or broken wires. They are very prone to do this in the wiring between the door and the body. Repair problem wires and you should be okay. Alarm is most likely being triggered by the same short. Happy hunting!

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do

holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

Jeep alarm will not turn off

The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
