Can the car alarm cause the battery in my chrysler cirrus to lose charge


if the head lights continue to flash of course the battery will go flat. every time the head lights flash there is 65 watts of power coming out of the battery. Have the alarm modulator checked out as it should only flash once or twice to indicate that the alarm is activated.

95 chrysler new yorker, car starts for 2 to 3 seconds and stalls, headlights flash off and on and turning signals flash, how do i fix it?


I owned a LHS and 94 New yorker both cars did this, have the door locks checked for a loose wire for the alarm system, something is telling the security system there is a breach, you must lock the doors, shut the door and then open the car door by unlocking it with the key or it will continue to do this. Mine had loose wires and the door lock would not sense the key so I used the passenger door in the same way I described above. IT will NOT Start and run if this is an issue until the alarm is reset by doing as I described. Good luck BTW both cars suffered from failing transmissions, very weak trans in these cars.

Headlights are going off, but the flashers and interior lights stay on. Does this sound like a short or a fuse issue?


Could be a short circuit or electronic fault related to the alarm system.

When you wrote flashers, do you mean they are flashing, or are they on continously?

If they are flashing, the alarm system is about the only thing it could be because otherwise there is no relationship between interior lights and exterior flashers. You'll probably have to have it replaced.

If the flashers are on steady, it could be a simple pinched wire grounding out somewhere -- if those systems are ground-switched and happen to share a ground wire. In that case, you'll have to search the wiring diagram for the car, or have an automotive electrician fix it.

After unlocking or opening door, lights flash for 2 minutes regardless of starting vehicle with correct key


Brian,

Sounds like you have a factory, or aftermarket alarm system that was disconnected from the siren at some point. I am guessing it is aftermarket based on the fact that it will not disarm even if the correct key is used. If it is an after market alarm your problem is relatively simple to fix. Most after marke alarms are typically installed to the indicators by connecting the wires from the alarm into the cars factory fuse box. Locate the fuse box in your vehicles cabin and find look for any electrical wires that go into the fuse box from the front (WITHOUT REMOVING THE FUSE BOX). remove these wires or just the one going to your indicators, headlights, or whichever lights are flashing. The factory never connects wires to the fuse box from the front, so these wires should be obvious.

Headlights flashing - car does not have alarm system


You will need to take it to Chrysler/Dodge place and have them to reset it! Not sure if You bought this Used or not, but if You did,they never gave You the remote! and if I was You I would get one, it will save You some headaches in the future!
