Car alarm going off randomly in very cold weather

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?

    I have the same problem and its getting really annoying! It happens at -20degrees and at +30 degrees. I don't think it has anything to do with cold. Ramdomly the alarm goes off. Still looking for a solution. Eventually I have to take it to Toyota, but because its a random problem I have a feeling they wont figure it out.

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?

Just discovered a solution for my random alarm trigger. Turns out it was the sensor for the security lights on the side of the building. Weird 'eh. Park away from the sensor and no random alarms !!!!

1994 Toyota Camry is not equipped by the manufacturer with an alarm system. The only suggestion I have is to remove the aftermaket stuff from your vehicle.

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.

Hi there, The car alarm on my 2007 Camry keeps going off randomly. I don't really want a car alarm. How do you disable it? Thanks, Richard


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.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.


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.

97' Jeep Grand Cherokee factory alarm going off randomly at night


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
