I had trouble with the alarm going off in 1998 Trooper. I disconnected the alarm horn from the firewall and it runs fine plus no alarm to worry about. Question will the fix last?

    Thank you Dennis. My question should have been with disrupting the system by removing the alarm horn, will the alarm system at some point shut the vehicle down? I have only driven around the block since removing the horn to see if it would still run normal, which it does. Thank you.

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti

The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

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.

Anti theft shorted out.

You should look for the alarm fuse and relay and replace them.
Is it the factory alarm or what brand?

1998 Accord security system goes off for no reason and goes until battery drained. Horn has been disconnected for benefit of neighborhood. Cleaned and had battery checked by Batterys Plus and battery is...

The 98-02 accord do have hood latch problem that cause the alarm to go off like what you're having. One thing you can try is disconnecting the hood latch harness only(picture letter D). If everything turn back normal then you got a bad hood latch. You could replace latch or leave it unplug, it's up to you. Your alarm will work fine with it unplug. hope this helps you.k42282_2.jpg

The horn should only have a one wire connection. Disconnect the wire from the horn and run a wire from the positive battery terminal and touch the clip on the horn where the wire was disconnected from,if it blows, the problem might be in the switch in the steering wheel.
If it doesn't blow, check for a blown fuse, or a bad horn relay switch, Sorry I can't tell you exactly where that is, I don't have my manual at the moment. It is usually mounted near the firewall on the passenger side along with 2 or 3 others.

Horn not sounding when is turn on

Faulty wiring is most likely the issue with your vehicle anti theft sometimes overtime the wiring will get old, disconnected, and possibly water rot I would check the wiring or have a professional alarm installer look at it could even be in the harness. If your anti theft works I wouldn't worry to much about the horn sounding when you click the button however once set if you rock the truck and the alarm doesn't sound their is definitely a reason to get it looked at. easiest way to check yourself is to pop the hood and look for the alarm system usually against the firewall on the right or left corner depending on if it is after market or stock look at the connecting wires trace them down and see if their appears to be any noticeable damage if not last resort check the fuse that the alarm is connected too might be blown. Any more deep of an issue would probably require a specialist to take a look at.

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 .

My alarm (horns & lights)are constantly being triggered.

Check the small alarm switch under the bonnet is closed tight when the bonnets shut - put some tape on the bonnet to firm it up .

Reconnect the Battrey was discounected for a months

It sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm system, if it's not factory. First check your key rings, did the vehicle come with a remote entry/alarm? If it did and just stopped working, check the battery and replace it. If there is no remote, there may be a small toggle like switch under the driver's side dash pannel, someware lower tord the petals. if not, try leaving the key in the ignition in the "on" position with the door open before you try reconnecting the battery. Try that, and if that doesn't work still, disconnect the wires (black and red usualy) to the alarm horn, where all the noise is coming from. Good luck!

Alarm going of for no reason

it is possible that the settings on the alarm are set too sensitive. This can be adjusted but to disconnect it there is most likely a small red wire to the possitive post of the battery that can be dissconnected or just as easily you can cut the wire to horn and make it all go away.
