First of all when have you replaced the battery in your key remote? and also the buttons on the key pad can stick and this is not the main computer for the car it is in the antitheft system and in most cases it is the sensor in the door or the trunk lid itself the computer could be showing it is open and what you can do when you park the car at night watch out the window and see how long it takes for dome light to go off if it takes a long time it is the sensor in the security system

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

My tail lights aren't working on my 2000 sebring . I have checked all fuses, but had to remove the horn fuse because alarm kept going off .


When you say tailings do you mean all the lights on the back including brake/turn signals or do you mean parking lights which includes the front parking lights? People use the term tailings for either one.

What your asking, is how to make a malfunction light
go away from your dash, so you can forget you have a
problem & make no attempt to repair the car

Until you find & resolve active OBD2 Codes that actually set
a MIL or Check Lamp it will keep coming back

Every time you clear a code you have to run a drive cylce in
some cases to start the procees over, as you need those codes
to diagnose the issues

The codes that are there, do not tell you what to replace

Without writing a book here, just study OBD Systems online &
take the car to a repair shop

It is beyond your ability at this time to figure out

it sounds like the anti-theft module needs to be reset so it won`t go off when it shouldn`t.the module thinks the car is being stollen as it went into anti-theft mode and needs to be reset.usually the light for this problem(gross vacume leak) will reset on its own when the computer goes through its test procedure for the evap system and detects no fault.

Why does the malfunction indicator light come on? I have a 2000 Toyota Sienna and the light has just started coming on. I've always kept up the maintenance schedule and it has 114,000 miles.


What that is the engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your engine sensor's, you'll need to have engine computer diag done to know what's going on, most repair shop's can do this service, Autozone can do this for free, but dont buy the part till it's check by auto tech, this way you know some what what's wrong.Good Luck.

2000 acura TL horn blows when replacing the battery


dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

2000 Cougar no lights/brake lights and Alarm w/mind of its own


If any wires were crushed and momentarily shorted, it can damage any lighting/ alarm or other control module in the system. Only thing you can do is physically go over the harness and check for damage, pinched leads or missing grounds. If everything appears good, find the module and replace it (scrapyard part is cheaper than new) Accident damage is different than "normal" failures and can't really be diagnosed online because things can happen in an accident that never happen in normal use. All situations are different (angle of impact, location of impact, component shift and "bounce-back" as well as quality and care taken during repair work) Even if it was my vehicle, I'd need to go over the entire thing in order to locate the problem.
Good luck
