Question about 2008 Dodge Avenger
Hi Karen, I'm glad to help! It sound like you have a bad lock cylinder theft switch that could be bad. It actually mounts right on the end of the lock cylinder on the door where you put your key in. Not completely positive, but this would be a good place to start. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Karen.

SOURCE: horn honks every 5 minutes or so
sounds like lock button on key fob is stuck or there maybe radio interference around vehicle making it do that? did it just start doing it? if so maybe a neighbor just hooked up wireless internet? take battery out of key fob and see if it still does it,if still does,talk to neighbors and see if any one installed a new wireless router?also you can find out what mega hertz your system is running get a scanner and program numbers and see if there is any interference!!!Also when you take out battery out of key fob try soaking fob in rubbing alcohol and then let throughly dry then reinstall battery(if unit got wet maybe shorting terminals or sticking)try that may haft to reset alarm when you take out battery of fob!!!! :) Hope This Helps!!!!

Could be a few things, firstly you have little switches on the inside of the door jams these are to put the inside lights on when you open the door, sometimes they stick in so the car thinks the door is open hence the alarm sounds off. You should be able to find them easy enough also check the boot/trunk its slightly different in the boot as it may have metal contacts. if these are not clean and connecting properly then again the car will think the boot is open if they do seem a little stiff spray some WD-40 on then and push in and out until they feel free.
The other thing it could be is the alarm sensitivity, its basically a small screw you turn and it controls the level of the alarm going off, like if its very windy and your alarm keeps going off then you would adjust it to be less sensitive.
Thirdly the car battery may be on its way out or the connection to the battery is lose somewhere, the car will think someone is tampering with it and again go off.
Lastly the car locks may not be completely turning to the lock position kind like they are half way between locked and unlocked although the car will still lock, This is more common on hondas though so less likely on your car!
Try the cheapest option first check them switches on the inside of the door, called pin switches. its very common this time of year if its cold. have a good scout right around each door and, also the bonnet/hood sometimes have this switch once you have seen one you will know what they look like. just make sure they are all connected properly and free them up.
Hope this helps, if itsnot any of them then its a fault on the alarm. Do you have a very small key? if so chaces are its for an aftermarket alarm so you can find the noise making box under the bonnet and turn it to off.
