If the head lights continue to flash of course the battery will go flat. every time the head lights flash there is 65 watts of power coming out of the battery. Have the alarm modulator checked out as it should only flash once or twice to indicate that the alarm is activated.

SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

SOURCE: where is the battery located on a 1999 cirrus

The owner's manual says to crank the steering wheel all the way to the left. It is difficult and I had to lift the battery with one hand when replacing it, but you can get between the wheel well and tire, without removing the wheel.

Can the car alarm kill your battery but you can start the car but after you turn it off battey died again

sure, if you let the alarm drain the battery, this can destroy any stock battery.
The car batteries are not like golf carts and are not deep discharge rated. (so can be damaged)
so charge the battery, if it wont hold a charge, it is bad.
if it discharges silently, and darkly parked , that is phantom discharge
if is discharges , driving that is a engine charge system failure.
parked over night discharging is phantom discharging.
if the alarm goes off and stays in alarm , then dont use, it.
if the battery is happy with the alarm defeated then the Alarm is bad.

The battery measure 12.6vdc charged,(rested) "voltmeter"
and running measures, 13.3 to 15vdc at idle.

this one tool can solve this problem

1999 Cirrus battery loses charge when car sets.

Here is a neat trick for that problem (my 1999 Cirrus drain issue could not be solved) Disconnect the negative cable for a minimum of 5 seconds, then reattach it. Doing this before you go to bed insures a charged battery in the morning. It is when the engine is turned over that the battery drain begins again (probably the anti-lock brake motor) Try not to perform this too often, as it will mess with the oxygen sensors over time, which reset their data from the power disconnect. Oxygen sensors in this car gather their needed data from about 40 miles of regular driving, and it is recommended to drive the car often to engage these sensors occasionally. The car might drive slightly rougher after the battery disconnect because these sensors are not fully activated. They determine crucial fuel / oxygen ratios to deliver to the engine and its components...

2000 chrysler cirrus lxi. car starts after 30 secs battery light comes on . lose power, gauges radio. alternator?

Hello, It could probably be the battery suffering a water loss. When there's no water sulfur acid will not be produced and the battery wont charge, therefore it will only work as a current path but once you turn the car off you can't start it. The solution is to check the water levels in the battery and also measure its voltage with a voltimeter. It has to be 12 volts or above ( +/- 5 % ). As a user and not an expert I DO NOT RECOMMEND opening the battery yourself since the acid is something dangerous that can seriously harm you. Let a professional do that, but it's always useful to check the voltage. Should all the previously mentioned steps doesn't work, you can ask about the alternator or its belt (might need to be replaced)

Battery light

1st thing to check would be the alternator, to make sure it's charging the battery. If it's not, the red battery light would come on. Most major parts stores offer free battery and charging system checks, they can tell you if the alternator is not charging. Have it checked asap, as the new battery will be dead soon if it's not being charged. countrycurt0
