Try removing the battery from the FOB and see if that cures the problem. Sometimes the unit will short out internally...or a weak battery can cause the problem.

No there is no such adjustment. You need the dealer to scan the systems control module and see what sensor is causing this.

There is a short in the transponder,or tranducer itself, are you near a garage door opener,like when someone opens there door and it signal you alarm, Its either picing up a alarm signal else where or its sensitivity is to sensitive itself. depends on the alarm itself there are resistor adjustment for yours, its on the reciever. you may want to adjust the sensitivity so if a feather falls on it it dont go off

Horn just goes off for no reason


If you have a vehicle alarm installed the alarm module is faulty or set too sensitive. If you don't have any alarm installed there are a number of reasons for this to happen but in the end they all lead back to the ECM unit.

Adjust the sensitivity of the alarm system.

It may be too sensitive and is being set off by the glass breaking sensors.
loud noises usually set this off if it is too sensative.

97 bmw 528i factory alarm goes off for no reason


disable the hood microswitch. just unplug it. That and the cabin sensor are the most probably reasons the alarm will go off.
Alarms are useless. Totally effin useless. So it goes off.....then whaddya going to do. Shoot someone? Call the police? or listen to it drain the battery over and over again.
But....you can't disable the alarm totally. The bmw engineers have tied it into the main computer. you can however disable the sensors one by one so it doesn't set off the alarm. Hood sensor....Hood sensor....that's the culprit.

1997 mitsubishi eclipse panic alarm goes off for no reason


Hi. Probably the sensitivity sensor is... way too sensitive. If you know where it is installed, you should be able to see a small knob coming out from it. Play with the knob and touch the car while the alarm is engaged to see the level of sensitivity you want, but be cautious. You don't want it too stiff, because when it's time to work, it might not.
