2005 Hyundia Elantra alarm goes off for no real reason
For some reason I can not figure out my car's alarm started going off today. It would go off for about a minute or two at a time and then do it again about every two minutes. I opened and closed all the doors, the hood, and the trunk - which seems to have made the alarm stop going off for now, however this created a new problem. Although I can still lock my doors using the key remote, I can no longer "engadge" the alarm. It supossed to be that you hit the lock button once to lock it, and then a second time to set the alarm. The car used to let out a friendly little "chirp" to let me know the alarm was set, but now refuses. Please help!!

Turn on key & wipers--try to move wiper arms--not real hard--may break something--sometimes wipers will start moving.Next--have motor tested--then check for fuse, fusible link, or circuit breaker--depends on make of car. If fuse--replace--if other take to qualified mechanic.
i trust you are talking about the radiator(ive had people refering to their a/c system recharge as installing the anti freeze). this takes a standard good quality anti freeze/coolant mixed with distilled water.
You really need a test drive by a tech. Any shop should be able to do that and give you a firm (written) estimate. It might not be a big deal. Shop around if you need a rebuild, If you need one, ask about their warranty. Believe it or not, a good reference for a tranny shop is the Used Car Manager at the Hyundai dealership. Go in to ask him, not over the phone, and be nice. You're asking for a favor after all. Many dealers do a lot of their work outside the store for reasons of cost. It all depends on the dealership. One will, one won't. Ask.
I had this same problem just today.Hhowever, I had the remote in my hand and it would not stop the honking!. Since I could get into the car, I released the hood, opened the master fuse box on the left side, and pulled the fuse labeled "Horn Relay".(On the upper left, there are three large, black, square fuses, it is the third and is labeled in the lid). I waited ten seconds and put the fuse back in, no more alarm, no more infernal honking.
its real easy open trunk lid take rear sill off should just pop off then take trim panels each side then there are 4 bolts each side 10mm tkae bolts out firmly pull on tail lights they should come out and then reverse back
