2001 Acura 3.2CL security alarm problem

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.

My security alarm wont shut off

The ENv3 alarm clock feature is a glitch in the phone that many users have trouble with. To troubleshoot it, set another alarm and choose another ringtone for the alarm sound. Also make sure you have the V06 firmware.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have an Acura MDX 2003 and can't disable the factory security alarm... I don't have a remote

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.

We understand that your problem is: My 95 jeep

Have it towed to a car alarm specialist that is familar with Chrysler products. With a little luck they can fix it.. To reset alarm
(if it will work}, try locking drivers door and unlock it with the remote from outside.

The 5 second thing does not sound good.. Usually this locks your ECM out so it will never start. Thinks someone is trying to steal it.
