Question about 2001 Acura 3.2CL
Hello. I'm Korean so even if my English isn't sufficient enough, please understand and over-look my mistakes. I got a 2001 Acura CL3.2. My car has a security alarm problem. The alarm goes off intermittently by itself since a month ago. I can not sleep well because of the alarm. So, I keep unlocking the door when I leave. Today, I visited a car center to ask about the alarm issue but it's likely to cost much to repair. If I have to spend much money to repair it, I'd rather cut off the security system then repair it. Could you give a good solution for me?
Make sure your car battery is 100%. (Battery test.) Batteries only last 3-5 years.
If battery power drops down, alarm designed to come on.
Other possibility, if someone in neighborhood nearby (within 500 yards) has a cb radio or ham radio or a service truck with a radio in it, that could set off the alarm intermittently due to same radio frequency.

If it's a cheap aftermarket alarm, check for a red wire coming off the hot side of your battery with an inline fuse. If it's not, try to locate the alarm "computer" under the driver's side dash or nearby your fuse panel. You'll find a black box with a wiring diagram glued to the side, normally strapped to a wiring harness or other fixed element. If this is the type of alarm you have, you'll need to trace each wire coming from the alarm computer and unclip each fastener that's clipped to your vehicle's factory wiring. The trouble with these types of alarms is that they can get power from a number of sources (stereo, interior lights, etc.). Good luck with this one!

I hate to say this, but sometimes they're all connected on a shared ground circuit; and in your case the shared circuit happens to be underneath the hood on the front of the left side fender. Now, there is another ground for the security hood switch. As far as the check engine lamp coming on, it may be a wsie choice to take the vehicle to have the ECM checked for any lingering codes. AutoZone has a free service for scanning engine codes.
