I have a 2007 Camry with built in alarm system. For the past 3 nights, my alarm has been sporadically going off after it has been armed. There is nobody around the car (as there are no footprints in the snow). Temperatures are approx. -20celcius (0 farenheit). Any ideas about how to deactivate the alarm so that it doesn't wake my neighbours in the middle of the night?
Re: car alarm going off randomly in very cold weather
I have a 2000 camry and my car alarm only goes off while I'm at work all day long. Is it radio waves and it doesn't do it every day. It is the factory alarm and all the lights and horns go off. My boss is having a fit. What do I do?

can you check under hood, there is a fuse box, remove fuse box lid, inside is printed names of circuits if you have an alarm circuit , remove that fuse, then check if car starts and runs, if so, alarm is disabled.
this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
Replacing the ECU will not require Dealer Intervention Although most folks Like to Buy them From junk yard, I Have Never done That For My Personal Cars or most Customers , as You May Buy the SAME PROBLEM & or More different ones. AND that Solution I would ONLY resort to If,, You have EXHAUSTED "ALL" other Avenues, such as Bad Dome Light Buttons, all it takes is 1 to be Slightly Dirty at the Contacts. I would check them all and there plugs/Connecters etc.I think I'll Do a little more reserch on this
But if I have Helped More or solved this Please Remember to RATE me Thonk you RejakWilson
