SOURCE: alarm keeps going at random

I also had the same problem and mine too was usually because I had either a window or the sunroof slightly open. If it is summer and you need to leave them open slightly or if you have a pet in the car then heere is a great tip. There is a small square button near the bottom of the door pillar to the right of the drivers seat and if you press this before locking the car it will set the alarm for the whole car with the exception of the main cabin so movement will not set the alarm off. The locks, boot, ignition etc all stay alarmed until you switch it off.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Durango, headlights flicker

I had a similar problem on my 2001 Caravan. Turned out to be a loose connection between the frame control module and the fuse box. I unscrewed the frame/front control module from the fuse box and bent the tabs slightly to make better contact. Then tighten down the module securley. Need star driver to loosen screws

1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

sounds like there is a short somewhere. you need to start checking things with a multi meter, could be a bad switch. I would recommend picking up a factory service manual for your vehicle off of ebay. If you need any further assistance let me know.

Horn blows and lights flash when vehicle is parked


Hi Ron:
This is the ALARM function that is happening. It may be defective, and it may be that someone has your second set of keys and is goofing around. Rarely, there may be someone in your immediate vicinity that has the same remote code.
I see two choices, trouble shoot or disable the alarm.

I have a clarion rk20 keyless entry and remote start on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee it works fine but whenever i remote start it, its parking lights continue to flash as if the hazard lights were on?


After doing some poking around, I found that flashing parking lights are an indication that the remote start is being used. According to the information I found, the parking lights shouldn't keep on flashing after your 2003 Grand Cherokee has started. I am assuming that your parking lights, however, continue to flash even after the engine has started and you have put your Jeep into gear. Please let me know if that is the case as if it is then you likely have a short somewhere in the wiring that is telling your alarm system's brain that the remote circuit is still being used.

In order for something like this to happen, the major power line is usually pulled high when the remote is activated. When it is pulled high, the computer tells your car's parking lights to enter flash mode. What should happen next is that when the system has fired, the line should drop back to standard voltage and, at that point, the change in voltage should tell your parking lights to go back into standard mode.

What is happening instead is that the flasher light activation circuit remains high even after it is supposed to reset to normal.

The usual cause of this is a short somewhere on the input side of the alarm circuity. It is this side of the circuitry that pulls the parking lights into flash mode. It may be as simple as a short in the alarm system's switching wire harness (even something as simple as a loose crimp on a spade connector or a molex plug insert can cause it.

If you do not have easy access to the switch wiring, the wiring harness or loom, I would suggest taking it to a good alarm shop, telling them what is going on and having them trace the circuits until they find the troublemaker.
