Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

Stock car alarm randomly going off

I have a 2004 Toyota Carolla LE. The stock alarm will randomly go off when the car is parked. Last night it decide to go off at 3 am. I disconnected the battery as a quick fix. If it is parked flat on the street or parking lot, no problem. However it seems to go off when it is in the drive way parked at a slight angle (maybe a 7% grade at best). Not sure what to do or what it could be. Thanks

I have a 57 civic hatchback and for no reason the alarm keeps going off randomly mainly at night. Some nights is fine but once it goes of I can set the alarm watch it from inside for a few minutes and it...


1957>??? really?

all alarms are a box with a processor in it, a computer, or puter.
the alarm brain.
so like all computers, garage in , nets you,? garbage out.
called GIGO, in the business.
on newer cars 07+? they will tell you what is wrong, using a scan tool
but many old cars , (my big beef) will not. (best is to kill it forever )
(imagine, all 6 billion cars on earth all with false alarms, a world H3LL that , huh) mines off all the time. nobody listens to them. ever.

fixing old alarms with out my special tools is very very hard.
if lucky , inspect all sensor wires, then replace all switches.
old switches fail and for sure 1957 LOL !!!!!!
in my shop I have a voltage (and others) data logger.
i can connect my logger up and then beat up the doors.
rattle them, even drive and see them mess up.
it logs to a flash card.
old wiring and parts on old cars, all fail.
due to wear and corrosion or water ingress.

some alarms have shake switches, that can tip.
the FSM for your, explains all this if alarm is stock.
nah 1957 hand none. right?
the FSM book covers all tests of the alarm.
get one.
if car is not really 1957
then login to alldata.com and see your stock alarm
if not stock , then post all sticker data on side of it.
or photo it and post it.

tell more get more ,like WHAT CIVIC EXACTLY, there are sub models.

How do i turn off the alarm on my 2004 kia spectra if i don't have a remote.


you can get the alarm to go off by unlocking the right door or the trunk with the key if it is a stock unit,if it is an after market one you can go to a stereo store and have a universal key fob programed for your unit(as for universal I mean they have several different options for each brand of alarm).
You can also have one for a stock alarm system done by the dealership.

I'm not sure that is possible without having your key in your ignition. When reprogramming keys or transmitters they would all have to be reprogrammed to work with your vehicle at the same time so as long as your current keys and transmitters work I'm pretty sure that this incident is pure fluke!
