Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Galant
Parked Galant in freezing weather, alarm went off , drove it home, had to diconnect battery. When battery is reconnectesd, alarm goes off again. Could it be something other than alarm-- like radiator? or frozen belt or fuel line?
SOURCE: automatic transmission frozen
U can't shift it out of park because the battery is dead, park is locked until the brak lights are activated (no power no lights), this 12 volt brak light signal un-locks the park solenoid.

The alarm system is triggered by any attempt to gain entry to the car without unlocking the doors with the ignition key. But if this triggering due to cold and freeze.:---Try this procedure first.:--- To reset the alarm you need to put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off 3 times fast.Then see if that is helping. ---------------- If its not then try this other procedure.In this procedure.Insert the car key on driver side door lock.Then the key to open the door,but dont pull the door to open.Just turn the key .Then again turn the key to close the door.Then remove the key out.Then again insert key on driver side door lock,open the door by turning the key ,but this time pull the door to open and then insert the key in car ignition.( Its simple.First time just insert key in driver side door lock but just turn key open /close.Then remove key out.Then second time insert key in driver side door lock,but this time open the door and insert the key in car ignition switch.This resets the system.). ------------------ But if still the alarm goes off when the temperature freezes then you need to reprogram the alarm module or disable the alarm module.Re-programming has to be done by dealer.And for disabling it you need to unplug the alarm module wire from its connections.But this is not advisable.Still the alarm module is located behind the glove box.Just unplug the alarm module wire and cover the tip of wire with a tape so it does not get in contact with any other live wire.But if alarm is disabled then it will not trigger when car is secretly open by some one else with out key.----------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
