SOURCE: Won't start (again); has new alternator & new battery

what it sounds like is that you may have a loose ground somewhere,most likely a ground strap from the engine block to the frame to the battery. chances are that because of the loose ground your altenator maybe charginging properly but the looose ground the current is not going to the battery so as you are driving the battery is being discharged. if this doesn't solve the problem then i suspect that your alarm is the problem. it is hardwired to the positve side of the of the system and is drawing your battery down. please rate the solution...thanks

SOURCE: car alarm won't turn off after recharge of battery

When the battery is disconnected and replaced and when the battery is drained and then recharged, the anti-theft device in your car was activated.

Refer to your Manual to arm and disarm the anti-theft device, it should reset

If this does not work using the remote, try locking and unlocking the driver side door with the key and IMMEDIATELY START the car.

SOURCE: 2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

Driver side door ajar light comes on 2006 chryler 300 c


alarm will obviously sound because the anti theft device thinks door is open...maybe it doesn't think ...it mis detects
check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

I have the same problem with my left rear door (it also sets off the alarm at times when parked). I take some wd40 and spray it into the inside lock slide and move it back and forth a few times. that seems to fix it.

Disable 2003 passat alarm


check the door jamb sensors and the hood and trunk open sensors one could be bad causing thr security system to engage are all of the doors locking when you press the lock does it say trunk ajar? ckeck under the hood as well because if the car thinks the hood is open the security may trigger also because thieves can pop the hood anddisconect the battery so some cars have a hood pop sensor they should look like a little.black button somewhere near the front

My 2000 ford explorer is having issues with the door alarm and interior lights remaining on even though the door is shut.Any advice is great.Cheers.


Go sit in your truck and close all the doors. Light stays on right? Put your key in the ignition. Does the chime start going off when you put the key in? If so, door switch or the GEM thinks a door is open.

To find out which door... Leave the key in the ingntion. Turn to the on position. Even with doors closed, chime sounds once after a few seconds and door ajar light comes on and stays on right? Open each door one by one. The chime should sound each time you open a door. When you find the door that doesn't make the chime sound when you open it, that is the problem. (Don't forget to try the rear hatch and the hatch glass also!) To determine if the switch is bad or if the GEM is having a problem thinking the door is open, just unplug the suspected switch, close all the doors, and see if the problem stops. (don't forget to wait a second to give the lights time to go off) If unplugging the switch solves it, the replace it. If it doesn't, Ford can check your GEM to see if it is the problem.

I hope this helps

Acura cl alarm problems???


To all you Acura alarm sufferers. In the immediate term to appease your neighbors - open the door and reclose, leaving the door ajar enough that the interior door light is still on. Be sure to turn off the roof light so no one is cued your car door is ajar.
When you can go under the hood, remove the fuse - I think it is 15 - the fuse box cover has a diagram. I left the fuse out for a couple of hours and reinserted it. That broke the pattern for 7 months.
It is 89 degrees in chicago today, the alarm went off at the train station and I got a ticket for noise disturbance.
It's time to look at the fuse box again. i think extreme temps are the problem.

My door ajar light stays on sometimes while driving along with my interior dome light on my 1997 Ford F-150. Also, the door ajar alarm will go off for a certain amount of time after i get out of my truck.


spray the door latch with WD - 40 on both doors then open and close multiple times. Sometimes they get stuck ond this help if they free up once a month should keep it away
