Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

My security alarm goes off intermittingly without any apparent cause, usually 4-5 hours after I have parked it (and locked it up) for the evening. I end up having to open a door to stop the alarm and then lock everythin up once more and the problem does not repeat itself until the next day (after using the vehicle).

When I bought my 2001 Jimmy, it did the same thing. Searched the "net" and found the solution. Open all the doors and clean the light switch buttons. Sometimes they get dirt in them. This worked for me. I've never had this problem again.

Security alarm goes off every 15 minutes for no apparent reason


Hi Gregg, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Gregg, several things can cause a car alarm to go off. One of the most common reasons is the alarm switches which are mounted to doors. under hood, trunk. When these switches go bad OR get corroded from water, can cause the alarm to go off with just the blowing of the wind moving the car. Check this by pushing on each door and see if the alarm goes off. Also push downward on the hood and trunk. Even door adjustments can cause the issue, because if a door is not tight it can move and set the alarm off. One other thing is sensitivity, the alarm box can be going bad and the slightest movement of the vehicle can set it off.

How do we dismantle the alarm system without the remote? We live in an apartment building and the valets in the garage have a key without the remote so they can move the car. Even if we leave the car...


You can buy a new key chain remote on ebay, or go to hyundai dealership, I would not disable security, as one thing electrical goes wrong it can cause other things to not work properly. This car has built in computer system.

The factory alarm in my 2000 Trooper goes off 10-15 times per day for no apparent reason. So to avoid insanity I removed the fuse that controls the horn. Well, my alarm still goes of 10-15 times per day...


The usual cause of this is the alarm switch on the bonnet panel is too low and creeps up when you leave the car .

Just put some washers behind it so its snug when the bonnets shut down - I have done a few like his and its easier than disconnecting .
