Was there an alarm system or after market radio installed recently? I would diconnect the battery before anymore damage happens. And take the part that was recently installed. and get back behind the Radio/or follw the alarm wires and your gonna find alot of burnt wires. You will find the arcing wires. replace them . Have you noticed anything not working? If you have ? 10 to 1 that's the problem. Please leave a good feedback for me. Thanks
did u hit a bump ? on the passeger side kick panel feel for the fuel cut off switch and see if it triped! while cranking look at the dash to see if the theft lite is on wile cranking!! if yes try another key! if it doesnt work bang on fuel tank !!! suspect bad fuel pump
Try disconnecting the positive from the alarm. Sometimes its connected straight to the battery. If its not connected to the battery look underneath the dash drivers side. Find the alarm brain, the power cable (RED) should have a fuse on it. Take the fuse off, disconnect the negative from the battery wait five minutes. Then connect everything, if you took off the right fuse the alarm should restart. If its still doing it the alarm is not the problem. If you have a trunk switch to the alarm, you can simply disconnect it. These switches are optional and often get corroded or defective almost always causing the problem described. After disconnecting the negative from the battery you might notice your car's driveability different. This is because the car's computer also gets restarted. Don't mess with anything in the car the computer will set on its own. Let me know if you still have a problem after this.
I trust this is a throttle body fuel injection system? If it is: purchase a "noid" for your vehicle at an autoparts store this little tester will let you know if your injectors are working. if they are not; they will not be spraying gas into your "bowl" the injectors are little electrical powered solenoids; check fuses, fuseable links and, the efi module.
I own a 2003 mitsubishi spyder eclipse GT and my alarm fob broke off its key chain so I havent been using it lately (waiting for replacement). Today I went to use my car (unlocked and opened the door with the key) and the alarm activated. The car still starts but I have to wait till the alarm gos through its cycle before I drive anywhere (embarassment of course). How do I disengauge the alarm system till I get the new fob?
