Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
Car can be sitting all day with Alarm System activated, out of the blue alarm will sound complete with lights and horn.
Hi from uk as previous reply has said it may be your battery? if your alarm incorporates voltage drop sensing ? any drop in batteries voltage will activate alarm ie if door /boot is opened the interior light/s will come on giving signal to alarm of sudden drop in voltage however if battery is old ? it may be deteriating ? a discharge test at a motor store /garage will confirm if this is fault ? and would be suspect if this fault has occured suddenly having no probs prior ? hope this helps ?

Is your battery getting weak by any chance? May be time to have it load tested.Good place to start.

I had the same problem. The alarm system on my 1997 Le Sabre self-actuates. Luckily, it went off once when I popped the trunk. I went to Auto Zone and bought a generic trunk replacement lock. I noticed the original lock had a funky push-pull type of switch used to activate the alarm. This switch was likely hair-line on/off and when the temperature changed, it activated.
I went ahead and replaced the lock without the switch, but you can try simply unplugging the switch through the hole in the metal behind the lock to see if that might stop the alarm from arming itself (or cut the wire).
Good luck, it's a "hairy" problem.
