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 !!!!

Suzuki xl7 2007 alarme armed and car is starting

I am not sure I understand what you have going on here, do you mean the security light is on but the car starts? If so then there is a fault in the security system sensors or wiring and when that happens the light doesn't mean the system is armed it means it is sensing a fault..

Need to disconnect security system on 98 Toyota camry

If I remember correctly if you unlock the drivers door with the key from outside twice it disables the arm just like the key fob would have but only if it is a factory alarm system.

Hyundai alarm

I was having the same issue and just disconnected the hood switch cabling completely. This not only solved my 3 am alarms for no reason but also allows the car to arm the rest of the system, by beeping and flashing lights when arming with the keyfob.

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.

Brake light keeps going off and on sporadically

The brake light switch is mis-adjusted and is barely touching the brake pedal arm. This will also effect the cruise control.

Battery keeps going dead

Do you arm the alarm with your key pod? If so, simply don't arm it. Whatever you do to arm it stop doing. That way at least you can check to see if that is the problem.

If for some reason it automatically arms when you shut your doors, then remove one wire from your alarm. Tape the end of it so it won't hit something and cause a short.

I don't personally believe that is it. Check the battery terminal connectors and make sure there is no corrosion built up on them. Also, make certain they are tight on the battery posts.

Let us know if that does it.

1998 Toyota Camry car alarm keeps going off.

I have this same crazy problem with my Camry. When you push the button then open the door on the driver side really quick, the alarm starts to blow off. So what I used to do everytime is push the button to unlock all the doors then open whichever door you want. It won't scream. Try it.
