Alarm goes off intermittently. How do I stop it?

The motion sensor inside the car might be set too sensitive. There should be a very small recessed. adjusting screw between the sensors.Check whether it's a flat or philips acrew. Then turn anti clockwise for less sensitivity. Some of these sensors are so sensitive. A breeze of wind or a small insect will set it off. If no adjusting screw, take it to your dealer to program it.

The alarm on my 528i 98' goes on for no reason ? any idea

There is a short in the transponder,or tranducer itself, are you near a garage door opener,like when someone opens there door and it signal you alarm, Its either picing up a alarm signal else where or its sensitivity is to sensitive itself. depends on the alarm itself there are resistor adjustment for yours, its on the reciever. you may want to adjust the sensitivity so if a feather falls on it it dont go off

Can the sensitivity for the alarm system be adjusted

no, there are no adjustments.. if the alarm has an issue then a code should be stored. You will need to retreive it to begin with.

Panel light does not come on in 1999 buick lasabre

Have you checked the fuses (driver side, next to your left knee)? If so, make sure they're the correct amperage -- especially the fuses in the 6C, 8C, and 9C positions. 6C should be 25 (amps) and 8C & 9C should both be 10 amps.

Also, the headlights on that car are designed to be on all the time, day or night, with two exceptions:
  • If the car is in "Park" you can manually slide the little tab that's located on the dash, just left of the steering wheel, all the way left and that will temporarily shut them off, or
  • If the car is not running
That same tab adjusts the sensitivity of the "is-it-dark-enough-for-me-to-turn-on-the-taillights-and-panel-lights-yet?" sensor -- the farther left that tab is, the less sensitive the sensor is; all the way right means "really sensitive" -- try moving it all the way to the right (if it's not already).

Right above that tab is another tab that adjusts the brightness of the panel lights. If that tab is moved all the way to the left (which basically turns the panel lights off), it's possible that the panel/tail lights are actually coming on at night automatically but that you wouldn't be able to tell exactly when/if that took place because the brightness would go from "nothing" ("daytime status") to "still nothing" ("nighttime status but with the brighness all the way down"). However that tab does not control the brightness of the stereo so you'll never see any change there.

Long story short, if all the fuses are in good shape, try moving both tabs all the way to the right. :)

Hope that helps... If it doesn't solve the problem, maybe you (or whoever reads this) learned something new...??? ;) Either way, good luck!

The alarm is so sensitive, that it keeps the horn going with just a breeze passing by, or if a truck passes by. How do i adjust the sensitivity?

I wouldn't suggest trying to adjust the sensitivity yourself. I think the best bet is to call up either your local toyota dealer or car alarm specialist. My guess is that one of the two will do it for free.
