In this particular vehicle you must diode isolate from the GEM module . What happens is when you arm the vehicle the electronic module in the vehicle stays awake and then in about 20 min- 30 min then it shuts down and sends a a pulse and the alarm detects it as an intrusion and makes the alarm go off . Take it back to a shop or try to isolate it yourself

SOURCE: I have 05 s-type and my key works to lock the car

When you use the key to unlock the car you must put the key in the ignition immediately, this should stop the alarm sounding - if it does not you have an alarm module fault - get it checked at dealers.
good luck - hope this helps.

How do I reset the alarm on a 2005 hyundai Santa 2.4l


Not sure about yours, but many will reset by: turn key to "on" and wait 15 minutes or so; shut off, then try to start.

The body shop unhooked my car battery and know my anti-theft system is locked . how do i unlock it . they said something about they unhooked my alarm. PLEASE HELP!!


This worked on a 2000 so try it and see if it works on yours.

Disconnect both battery wires and "short" them together. This kills stored memory.

(1)Turn key to crank & then release. Security light still on. Wait till it goes off (maybe 15 minutes)
(2)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(3)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(4) Turn to off. Wait 20 seconds and start car.


Key must go to full off on each pass. Must have fully charged battery. Good Luck.

Even if this does not work a good testimonial would be appreciated

Alarm goes off on my 1999 C70 cabriolet after approx. 20-30 minutes, or can go most of the night until the early hours of the morning


you need to reset the alarm system with the remote(s) as per the book.(you can leave it unlocked as the car has an immobiliser and cannot be hot wired.) i leave mine unlocked all the time and just use the key to start it.how many people respond to the alarm going off??

97 bmw 528i factory alarm goes off for no reason


disable the hood microswitch. just unplug it. That and the cabin sensor are the most probably reasons the alarm will go off.
Alarms are useless. Totally effin useless. So it goes off.....then whaddya going to do. Shoot someone? Call the police? or listen to it drain the battery over and over again.
But....you can't disable the alarm totally. The bmw engineers have tied it into the main computer. you can however disable the sensors one by one so it doesn't set off the alarm. Hood sensor....Hood sensor....that's the culprit.
