More than likely it's a botched alarm install. There are several sitches that control the overhead lamp inside your car, as well these wires need to get thier elecrical current from the battery. There are several wire " clusters " behind your dash panel, and more than likely, when the alarm was install after-market, the installer wired the alarms " armed " signal lead to the wrong wire behind your dash, or in the fuse box itself (i've seen some rediculouse wiring jobs)

Your best solution is to find out the exact model of alarm that was installed, and try to obtain the installation documentation, as well as get the manual for your car, and check that the woring of your alarm is correct for your model / make / year of car.

I'll almost bet you money, it will be as simple as clipping one wire, and wiring it to the correct wire.

There is a blinking red led light under lower left side of driver and steering wheel attached to dash. It blinks ALWAYs!!!


This is most likely your "Valet" alarm disable switch. Use to disable your car alarm so you can keep your Alarm Fob and let a Valet, mechanic, friend etc. operate the car without the alarm being functional. If it is an after market alarm, consult the mfg's manual, if OEM contact dealer for operating instructions.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

I replaced a battery in my 2001 pontiac montana n the lights started blinking as if the alarm was going off.i hit the unlock n lock button n the blinking stopped. i have power,lights n radio but van wont...


It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.


There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

Car alarm goes off randomly when driver door is locked. Dealer replaced both the front and rear driver side door locks, relying on codes. Neither lock replacement fixed the problem. We drive down the...


Sounds like a bad door switch on one of the four doors. The switches have multiple contacts to serve both the dome light and the alarm system. The actual switch button is under a rubber boot with ribbed sides. The switches themselves are under the interior trim behind the doors.

2001 T & C van, driver side back door will not unlock. Also, I am not sure if thisi srelated but the car alarm keeps going off every few minutes ugghhh!


First, check that you're child safety lock isn't set for that door...If thats not possible then the next culprit might be the alarm FOB battery. IF, its an aftermarket alarm FOB you're in luck...changing the batt should do it...If it IS a factory alarm FOB, you have TWO choices...get a new aftermarket keyless entry system $89-129...or go to the dealer for reprogramming the remote, about $89.
Good Luck

Dashboard light flashes small red car on left hand side but it doesn't stay on long enough.what is that


this is the factory alarm indicator light. try locking the doors while your in the car and wait a few minutes. Unlock the door and open it and the horn should start to beep. Put your key in the driver's door and turn twice to unlock all the doors and stop the alarm.

Drivers door won't shut or lock suddenly and light in the door does not come on. Is this a fuse and how can i mend it.


not likely a fuse if other door lock works. the little red blinking light comes on when factory alarm sets and alarm isn't setting because the drivers side door latch is not working properly and alarm thinks the door is still open because of micro switch in latch not tripping.
