SOURCE: Alarm siren and sunroof not working. Replacing alarm siren did not fix it.

The dealer is not the only one. Must be a dealer writing. Any shop worth a damn should have a scanner to hook up and read live data and history to see the issue. I bought one and i am not even a shop. Price is high but when you have 7 kids and a lot of cars you tend to fix the issue yourself. Also ypu might want to find All Data. It is a program you can download it from a turant or buy it out pf china. But it is great to have cause it tell you procedures to follow to rule out what is and is not the problem.

Whick fuse do i pull for the alarm to stop lights draining the Battery. I have a 52 plate clk 2.7 diesel


Sounds like an after market alarm. If so, take it out or replace it. When I get cars like yours or won't start. If I see an aftermarket system, I tell customers that I won't work on them till this is out of the cars system. 99% of the time, The car works.

How to reset the alarm siren after changing the battery?


It would be a good idea to have it scanned at the dealer because some can have sensors inside the door and at the roof area and all around the car because it is a theft alarm...,They can be a difficult project !!!!! If you KNOW everything is well connected and was replaced correctly The system should reset itself each time the battery is reconnected......Save time and have the alarm system scanned..

Ford e150 alarm siren goes off when lights are turned on


try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes so the electrical system reboots itself with a clean start. That might fix it. IU would give it 10 to 15 minutes disconnected before reconnecting and trying it. Further to that i would say take it to the dealer and send the bill to the place that did your oil change

The Alarm system comes on by itself and we cannot disarm it


If the alarm system's siren has an inbuilt backup battery, then replace this siren if around or over four years of age. This battery will always fail eventually and cause a parasitic voltage drain on the system.
If the alarm's sensors have failed however, then you may need to remove and/or replace your system.

My alternater and battery test good on my 01 kia spectra.But, After putting the fully charged battery in my car, it slowlky died in on ly a few blocks drive?


Connect an ammeter in series with the battery positive terminal and battery positive lead. With ALL systems off, including alarm, door lights etc and with doors closed you should have a reading of only 0.03 amps.I'm guessing that yours is higher as it sounds like you have a parasitic voltage drain.If indeed it is higher, then disconnect any alarm system first and check your amps again. Every time you disconnect something, go back and check your amps.Once you get your amp drain back to normal, then you have managed to disconnect the system responsible for the high current drain.
The most likely candidates are always the alarm system, then stereo, then GPS tracker. After that you will have to start pulling more fuses, one by one and letting the vehicle rest for a few minutes after each thing is disconnected before taking a reading.
BTW, if it is the alarm which is drawing a high amp drain, then it is more often than not the alarm siren back up battery which has failed.
Good luck.

Alarm goes off even after unlocking with remote


If the alarm has a siren with a backup battery, then check the condition of the siren battery. Is it drawing a large charge (drop in amps from the battery. Run a parasitic drain test). If so, then the siren could be at fault.

Is the alarm fitted with a sonic motion detector? Looks like two tiny speakers in a unit fitted in the centre of the dash. If so, this unit could be faulty.

Many after market alarm systems by the way, tend to only last for a few short years before failing. Is this an aftermarket product or factory?

Alarm siren and sunroof not working. Replacing alarm siren did not fix it.


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

I WANT TO FIX PRESTIGE CAR ALARM IN THE CAR' AND HOW TO CONECT THE WIRES


Below is a fast installation guide for most car alarm systems. Refer to your manual were needed. Car alarms can be hard to set up and include bands of wiring and sensing elements to instal. Take it step by step and taking after the operating instructions cautiously.

Steps to installing a car alarm system.
1. Mount the siren to a solid surface under the hood. Make sure that you point the horn of the siren toward the ground so that moisture won't affect the sound or horn.
2. Drill a hole through a rubber grommet in the firewall of the car and feed the sirens wire through the hole into the passenger compartment of the car.
3. Feed the power wire through the same hole on the passenger side. Make sure there is enough slack to reach the car's battery. 4. Connect the alarm's power wire to the battery.
5. Put a fuse on the power wire next to the battery.
6. Mount the shock sensor as described in the car alarm's manual.
7. Drill holes in the dash were you will want to place the LED status indicator. Feed the LED's wire through the hole and place the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the LED and place it over the hole in the dash.
8. Find the wires that work the car's power door locks.
9. Connect the door-lock relay to the lock/unlock wires and connect the alarm wire to the relay in the manner described by the tech advisor. 10. Locate the wire that works the courtesy light if the alarm has current sensing.
11. Connect the current sensing line from the alarm to the courtesy light wire.
12. Locate the factory door trigger if the alarm does not have current or voltage sensing.
13. Connect the factory door trigger to the alarm.
14. Locate the starter wire on the steering column below the starter switch. Cut the line and connect the starter disable relay. Connect the starter disable wire from the alarm to the relay.
15. Mount the valet switch somewhere under the dash.
16. Connect all the wires to the proper inputs and outputs of the alarm.
17. Find a sturdy surface under the dash and mount the module under the dash.
18. Use tie wraps to secure the wires of the harness and mount it under the dash.
19. Arm the alarm and test. Adjust the sensitivity as needed.

2002 jaguar x-type alarm went off the other day while I was inside.When I shut the alarm off,I notice that the dashboards lights were on.I tired to start car but nothing happen,car isn't making a sound.Can...


most modern day car alarm systems started being factory fitted well over 10 years ago. The back up ni-cad battery inside the main siren will probably now be derelict and will cause many false alarms and immobiliser faults. In most cases, find out where the siren is tucked away( it will not be eady to get too because its a security device), and either replace the unit or ni-cads or just unplug it.
Always best to get car rescanned and clear dtc codes afterwards though too.
Note: keyfob batteries must be replaced annually on service date.
Cheers
Roger
