The sensitivity on my 2007 Hyundai Elantra needs to be adjusted.

Everytime the wind blows the alarm goes off. We have been told there is a switch somewhere, but we do not know where.

My 2007 Hyundai Elantra Limited car alarm goes off only at one location and not always. I have had the car for 3 years. It only started doing this the past 3 Sunday nights following getting new tires...

There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that addresses intermittent alarm self-activation. It involves replacing a small rubber bumper under the hood.

See your local Hyundai dealer and ask them about Bulletin Number 09-BE-026.

Alarm keeps sounding on my 07 Chrysler Sebring when I use my keyfob to centrally lock it. Had same problem last year and was told it was because snow was on sunroof. Was told problem had been fixed but...

Maybe your alarm is set to high and snow or bad winds will keep it on. So find out where is the Alarm box and see if there is a little switch on it that says LOW/ HIGH and try to lower the Sensitivity. Good luck

My alarm goes off randomly

Many alarms have a mercury tilt switch for motion detection, and if it is set too sensitively, a good gust of wind can set it off.
You need to adjust its sensitivity setting.

I have a 2001 hyundai elatra and my factory car alarm goes off every couple seconds. i parked it on a slope and i pulled the E brake and that stopped the car from going off. minutes later the alarm goes...

Incorrect. Hyundai factory alarms are not like aftermarket car alarms. They activate when they sense a voltage drop in the system, not when the car gets banged on. So... if you have a battery that's low on charge that will do it (I find this a lot in cars that have stereo systems), or if you have a parasitic draw on the battery while the car is off. You can research parasitic draw test on google and figure out how to check for it. A lot of times we find a bad light switch, like the switches for the doors, or the glove box, go bad and cause the alarm to get a little loopy.

If all else fails and you can't seem to figure it out, you might have yourself a bad ETACS module which isn't cheap but it snaps into the bottom of the drivers seat fuse box. It's the black box under the fuses. Before you go that route though, pay for the diagnosis at the dealer cuz if you buy one and install it and that's NOT it then you don't get to return the opened electrical parts you misdiagnosed.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the

There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Alarm keeps going off when it is windy

Go to the dealer and have them check the hood pin switch pad, there is a updated part that is longer to make better contact with the hood pin switch. Also, check the trunk lid stricker to make sure it is not bent, that has got me a couple of times.

2004 Hyundai Elantra problems after replacing alternator

Sound to me like some wires were either disturbed or crossed and are shorting out maybe when you replaced the alternator?Maybe have a look at the alternator connections again and make sure everything is correct and tight and that the new alternator is the right one for your car.Other than that its a case of tracing the wires from the alternator to the fusebox to find whats blowing your fuse.
