2001 Impreza Alarm

I have a 2001 Subaru Impreza, and for no reason the alarm keeps going off. Sometimes nearby cars are being locked or unlocked, but earlier it just went off for no reason. Sometimes it goes off just for a few seconds, but sometimes it goes off until I unlock it. I need to solve this problem, what can I do and how?

    The odometer screen shows "alarm on". I have armed/disarmed and activated/deactivated with no luck. Read the manual a dozen times? The security light keeps blinking once ever few seconds. It only stops when I am driving. Hope someone can help before the battery dies. Thanx

I replaced a battery in my 2001 pontiac montana n the lights started blinking as if the alarm was going off.i hit the unlock n lock button n the blinking stopped. i have power,lights n radio but van wont...

It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.

There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

I have a 2008 Impreza Outback Sport and the battery ran down (I'd been away and the car had been sitting for too long). When I tried jumping it from my friend's car, the alarm kept going off. The horn...

Okay,heres the problem the battery is low and the alarm is going crazy without enough voltage but something to try is to connect the jumper cables and have all doors shut. leave the cables on for a few minutes, if the alarm starts to go off as soon as you connect cables then dont wait, take the key and go to drivers door and lock and unlook the door lock with the key this will shut down alarm system and then try to start the car, it should start up and let run for a while, also the computer may have lost its idle memory so this means you will need to hold the gas pedal a little to keep it running, after a minute you can slowly release it and let it idle, you will know if this needs to be done when you start the car and it dies out, you will then strat it and hold gas, just a little bit enough to keep the engine running, hope this helps, have a good day.
