Sunfire alarm sounding for no reason


Focusing on switches: Start with the door switches. Pull the fuse for the dome lights. Reset the alarm. Does it sound off? The alarm feeds off the dome light fuse. Driver door is first: Often they wear out first and give us grief like this. Unscrew and disconnect the switch first. Replace the fuse. Carefully close the door so you don't loose the wire in the frame(attach a string to it so you can fish it back out if it falls in). Reset the alarm. Does it sound off or not? If it does, it is other than the switch or the passenger door switch (if a 2 door or 2 other passenger switches if a 4 door). Repeat process until the switch is found or all are eliminated. Switches are cheap, so replacing them will not break the bank. Disconnect the fuse again, unscrew the bad switch. Unplug it. Plug in the new. Screw it back in place. Reconnect the fuse and try it again. Repeat as needed until you have either found it or just limited your search area. Most often you will stumble upon it- chaffed wires, look plugs, bad switches). Yes, there is more, but I see this as the usual suspect. If you go back into the alarm, disconnect the alarm first, then observe the dome lights with the fuse in. It just may be a faulty control in the alarm, which is out of my territory. Let us know what you find, but start with the smallest things first. Good Luck!

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

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

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.
