Question about 1998 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

Car alarm goes off when driver door is opened, but alarm hasn't been set as there is no remote. Problem is intermittent.

My 1998 Buick Park Avenue has alarm problems. The remote is broken, and has been for years, but occasionally the car alarm will go off when the driver's door is opened. It will run for 30 seconds with horn honking and lights flashing, then shut off. But the next time you open the door, it goes off again. It doesn't seem to matter whether the door has been locked or not. Using the passenger door doesn't set the alarm off, but it is very awkward for getting in and out that way. After having this happen 5 or 6 or more times, the problem suddenly goes away for months, then shows up again. What is happening and how can it be stopped?

You have to have a remote if you want to sort the problem for good.

If you lock your doors with your remote or the power locks you need to unlock them with the remote or the alarm will go off. to reset the alarm you need to put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off 3 times fast.
