SOURCE: warning tone not working when headlighs left on and key removed

Do your interior lights come on when you open the driver's door? If not, the driver's door jamb switch probably got knocked loose (usually if the seat belt buckle catches it when closing the door)

More often than not, you can remove the switch and reconnect the two pieces back together and it'll work fine without needing to replace the switch.

Use an 8mm socket to loosen the retaining screw (it has phillips slots too, but it's usually too tight to use a screwdriver without buggering it up.

SOURCE: left a radio on, car

will the starter do anything? click, chatter,etc., try turning on the headlamps and turn the key as if to start vehicle.,see if the headlights dim,then if so you have a good starting connection, then more than likely the battery needs a chg, radios and lights will light seemingly o.k. but a starter needs higher current to operate and this is where it will fool you, the only other thing might be is if you left the key on too long and the alarm sensed this and cut the starter power so as not to be stolen, just an idea

SOURCE: Alarm went off, now the central locking doesn't work

use the car key itself from outside the vehicle with everything closed: use key in drivers door outside door lock and manually lock and unlock the door. check if fixed, may have to do a few times. i do believe the vehicle is in theft mode.

Why is my 2001 buick century custom dash lights, tail lights, cruise control not working and dinger is sounding don't know if it is ignition or head light dinger but stops when you close door

dinger is obviously your door open warning, problem 1 solved, dash and tail lights are often on the same circuit in many cars, this will need a new fuse, if this failed when replaced then you have a short, this normally happens in your tail lights

The dinger(the alert sound that goes off when your lights are still on or when your keys are in the ignition) and locks keep going off even when I turn the car off

It should be just fine, unless you have something inside the vehicle that requires use of battery ( something added not factory)

Alarm went off had to disconnect battery to shut off, door open light stays on, interior light stays on door locks and window controls will not work

O.k. this is a security feature of your alarm the car now essentially thinks that it is being stolen. In order to fix this issue you need to reset the alarm buy reconnecting the battery and using your electronic alarm sensor if you have one (if this doesn't work get new battery for alarm sensor)

Keyless entry isn't working and alarm was tripped

Check your door latches. Since the light stays on, one of them isn't reading properly. Once you get that fixed, the remote should work. The light problem could be related. The computer thinks the door isn't shut so that part of the system thinks you aren't moving.

02 CRV:When my lights or keys alert does not tell me.

I had the same problem with the lights alarm on my 2002 CRV. The alarm is linked in to the door open switch on the drivers side. If you open the door, about half way down on the centre post you'll see a rubber covered push switch. This is held in place by a single phillips screw. Remove the screw and gently pull out the cover. On mine, the wires had become unclipped from behind and just had to be reconnected (push fit).

Apparently this is a fairly common problem caused by the seatbelt being caught in the door and catching the switch.

When I leave the lights on in my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire, the car does not alert me with the traditional "ding ding ding" bell. It doesn't alert me at all. This has lead to the lights being left on...

I have a 98 sunfire and there is a relay on the right side of the car up and behind the glove box and there is some relays in there that controll the door and lite may have a relay that is is kind of hard to reach.
