1995 toyota camry battery and eletrical issues


It sounds to me like there is an after market alarm fitted to the vehicle. I had a simular problem where the alarm was sprayed with water during cleaning which shorted out the speaker for the alarm. So the alarm would be going off all night even though there was no sound. The cutout button could be part of the alarm system.

I think that if this is the case it would be best to remove the alarm and return the wiring to manufactures standard. The alarm should be mounted on the drivers side around the wheel arch area or on the wiring loom. It will look like a speaker or a around or square module with about 6 wires coming out of it.

You could try tracing the wiring for the cutout switch

I have a factory installed alarm on my 2003 jeep cherokee ,how do i disable alarm


Hello! The drivers side door lock/unlock switch is more than likely defective...Having said that, the alarm system on Jeeps are a constant problem...To disable the system requires removing the drivers door panel and cutting the Light Green/Orange wire at the switch...And installing a 465 Ohm resistor...Not something done without the necessary skills...
I would have the vehicle towed to a Jeep dealer and have them test the drivers door switch and disable the alarm....Guru...saailer

Check that your battery has 12v, check and clean terminal contacts. If battery has less than 12v have it charged and load tested. 9 of 10 times this will get you going...if not, I'll give you the rest of testing later if you need it.

Alarm and inner lights have a mind of their own


disconnect the battery and check inside the door panel for broken and or damaged wires that are creating ground. Observe the conditions of the alarm going off. with the lights flashing it lookes like wiring. check the black wire make sure its not touching any thing else. aslo look at the pink wire that should be for the interior illumination.

98 Jeep Wrangler with Alarm Problem - Installed by Marietta Jeep


Your vehicle has 2 ignition wires that you can put back to factory, and start the vehicle.
The wires you are looking to put back together are (blue) and (black/orange) - and found under the D/S dash. (ignition harness) They will be larger in Diameter than the others.
They were cut to install the security system. They go into the "brain" and out the other side. A relay inside the BRAIN is most likely failing.
If you no longer want the alarm installed, simply match up all of the factory colors. Use crimp-on ****-connectors for secure connection.
Let me know if you need more help.

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.
