What is causing the anti-theft alarm light flashing/horn blowing go off?

the remote key would be the easiest (and cheapest) thing to try first but i don't think that a low battery in the fob would activate the alarm randomly , i'd get the OBD codes read as will point to which part of the anti theft/central locking system is causing the issue

Disable 2003 passat alarm

check the door jamb sensors and the hood and trunk open sensors one could be bad causing thr security system to engage are all of the doors locking when you press the lock does it say trunk ajar? ckeck under the hood as well because if the car thinks the hood is open the security may trigger also because thieves can pop the hood anddisconect the battery so some cars have a hood pop sensor they should look like a button somewhere near the front

The battery of my Renault Scenic is flat, I need to open the bonnet to fit a new battery. How do I do that

There should be a bonnet release handle in the vehicle low and almost under the dashboard. Pulling that handle is the first step. After pulling that handle if you go to the front of the vehicle then under the bonnet there should be an additional handle to move right or left to completely release the hood.

I turn the key and the alarm goes off

It sounds like your key is no longer programmed for your car, or your key battery is dead. First, try replacing the battery in the key. If that doesn't work you'll need to get the key reprogrammed from the dealer. To replace the battery:
Open the key. In the groove where the key is stored there is a seam. Pry with a flat head screw driver. The front half and back half will separate. It doesn't come apart easy, usually takes a bit of prying. Then, take the button end and the back part, and pull up at the seam. Start in the front and once it opens a little- try prying with a finger nail around the edges. Replace the battery with CR2032 - 3 vdc - Positive + side down. Hope that helps.

The theft alarm goes off at anytime on our kia spectra 2008 - can it be disabled?

Hello, sounds like you have a problem with needing to replace a small rubber hood pad for your alarm button switch that is mounted near the right front corner(passenger side) on the underside of the hood which makes contact with the alarm switch button that is mounted on the right front fender just behind the headlamp housing. Check with your local Kia dealer or even a Hyundai dealer to see if they have a TSB (Technical Safety Bulletin) to have this small rubber pad replaced,it is an updated hood pad that improves better contact with the alarm button to keep the alarm system from going off at random. Since your car is a Spectra,it will be the same as a Hyundai Elantra. The new part number for the rubber hood pad is: 92736-3A000 . You can temporarily disable the alarm system by going to your fuse and relay center just behind the battery and removing the "horn" relay, or unplug the connector at the at alarm switch mounted on the right inner fender well. Note: Your alarm switch and contact pad my also be mounted on the left side as well if they are not on the right side. Hope this helps solve your issue..

Mitsubishi Magna GLX 1993 jumpstarting sets off alarm!

Is the alarm factory fitted, cheap, or a top of the range.
the factory alarm you can pull the cable of the horn untill you get the car started.
there are some alarms that go off when there is a voltage change, and some will keep going for a couple of minutes if the battery is dead flat untill there is power to equilze the power abit,
and some alarms have a key over ride in the siren.
if its a cheap alarm take the battery of and charge it,(the alarm will cut out as soon as the battery is disconnected.
~dont jump start from a dead flat battery, as it can cause a lot more problems with the electrics, leave another car running with the jump leads on for at least 5 min first.~
