2005 chrysler pacifica my alarm keeps going off at random times while parked I unlocked it then locked it back only for it to begin beeping again after two hours, what can it be?

What kind of shape is the battery in? Those alarms are very integrated and have a lot of parts. If the battery is getting low, it may be triggering the alarm. Since it appears to be happening at about 2 hours, some other things to look at would be the temperature causing a door expansion etc. If it is an OEM installation then a scan tool would be able to see any problems.

I have a Taurus 2004, and it happens that the car horn beeps 3 times randomly. does anyone know what would it may be?

the horn beeping at random is indicating a fault in the alarm system. alarms have their own battery which is balanced by the car battery and any unbalance ( corroded connections -bad earth, low charged battery in alarm, loose battery connections ) will cause the horn to sound --same as too sensitive a setting for the alarm or a intermittent power to the alarm

Have not replaced the battery in the key. I am told the battery in the key charges while driving and should not be replaced. Please advise. I am stuck.

Hi Geno,
You may have two different problems.
The key does indeed have a rechargeable battery and you do not replace the batteries in BMW keys. Once the key starts failing, you probably need a new key. If you have another key, you can find instructions online to reprogram the key that is causing problems with the other good key. Try that first to see if the programming just glitched off. I have seen this happen. I also have had keys just go bad.

The random flashing lights and quiet alarm are most likely due to a CAR battery that has a dead cell. I have had a number of BMWs on my car lot that will start and ACT like the battery is OK, but the hazard lights will randomly go on. Once the alternator charges the battery further, the lights go off as the battery is charged.

I agree with Patrick D....make 100% sure the charging system and battery are operating within the manufacturer specs. Just because it starts and seems OK, does not mean it is. Hope this helps, good luck.

My alarm keeps going off randomly during the day. I need some solutions

Hello, Shorted Batteries can cause this problem. You need to have the battery tested. If you have an add on Alarm, some have motion sensors that are too sensitive.

If you have Air suspension on the car, the pump may be going off to keep the car level. When this happens, you have a leak somewhere in the Air suspension system.

Sometime a weak battery or a battery that is going weak will do this. What happens is as the car is dormat the small voltage used to keep ECU alive drops and triggers a voltage drop to alarm( like it should for unauthorized entry).

Car Alarm keeps going off on 528i (1999)

I had a similar problem, 2003 530i, but only while the alarm was active. The culprit was a bad hood switch that was making intermitent connection.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.

this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
