The usual cause of this is the headlight switch is defective, the contacts for the switch or the connector get burnt, replace the switch and the connector if they show signs of overheating, they will be discolored looking.

Can the car alarm cause the battery in my chrysler cirrus to lose charge

if the head lights continue to flash of course the battery will go flat. every time the head lights flash there is 65 watts of power coming out of the battery. Have the alarm modulator checked out as it should only flash once or twice to indicate that the alarm is activated.

Alarm activated,lights are flashing can't start vehicle

if alarm is activated, it could be shutting off the starter, hence no may have to have a locksmith or electronics place disable the alarm so you can at least drive the thing

Headlights flashing - car does not have alarm system

You will need to take it to Chrysler/Dodge place and have them to reset it! Not sure if You bought this Used or not, but if You did,they never gave You the remote! and if I was You I would get one, it will save You some headaches in the future!

Jeep alarm will not turn off

The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
