    The doors lock automatically when you get out of the car and close the door. Then when you unlock the door with the key and open the door the alarm sounds and does not turn off until you start the car.

There is a switch in side the door that activates when the door is opened with the key or the remote, this switch is part of the door latch, it sends a signal that the car has been opened with a key or a remote key FOB, and this turns off the security system, if this switch doesn't function correctly and the signal doesn't get sent to the security system electronic control module then it thinks the car is being broken into and sets off the alarm, the dealer can scan the security system and watch the signal from the switch to verify the loss of signal, which I am 99% sure is the problem, the switch can be replaced but the door panel must come off and the inside of the door disassembled to access the switch, about a 2 hour job by a professional Toyota technician.

Isn't that the purpose of an alarm?

Is there a problem you have not indicated?

Thanks

2002 explorer anti-theft system activates while I'm in house (static). Might anyone have a probable cause ?


The "Proper" way is to use a scan tool with access to body body theft data. Usually alarm events set a code identifying which trigger set the alarm. "IE - B1234 Left Rear Door Alarm trigger Activation.

Since Most people dont HAVE an IDS or NGS or SnapOn...
You can try activating the alarm. all doors closed with windows down. wait 5 minutes. physically grab the top of each door panel thru the open window and shake the door hard like you were trying to pull it open. If its a marginal switch (usually is) the one thats borderline will trigger "open" with minor shaking and the good ones will show fully closed unless the door is in fact fully opened. If the shake test triggers the alarm on 1 door, then you know its either the pin switch (if it has one, not all do) or the door latch out of adjustment or defective.

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

My factory alarm keeps going off on my 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT when I open the door with my key. The only way I can turn the alarm off is by unlocking the door from the inside.


I hope you solved your problem and this is a late answer so if it helps anyone then OK good. When the door is open look down on the inside trim where your door meets when it shuts. There is a rubber boot covering an activator switch. Simply remove the screw, pull the module out and unplug it. Whenever you open the door it will not activate the alarm. There is nothing in the door that activates the alarm; only when you open the door.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

Alarm activated everytime I use the key to open the door.


very common issue with the vigor, it`s the power door actuator or something...there are 2 ways to fix it:

- the harder way (unless you`re half-decent at DIY car stuff, which I`m not), all you really are doing is cleaning the contacts..a detailed guide is here
http://www.acuravigorclub.com/Timely-Topics/Timely1202.htm

- OR the easy way is to just trick your car into thinking the hood is open so the alarm will never arm itself. Taken from another post:

You can effectively permanently disable the alarm (who actually bothers to respond when they hear a car alarm anyways?) by opening up the hood and finding the little switch that detects whether the hood is closed. Just bend this so that the alarm system always thinks the hood is open and the alarm system will never arm even if you lock the doors.

Car Alarm/Door lock


This happened to me too...It turned out to be that my door was out of adjustment, which caused the door position sensor to not know whether the door is closed or open. Sometimes my light on the inside of the door would flash (because the car thought that the door was open). Once the alarm did activate, the car would sometimes think that the door had opened, thus causing the alarm to activate. It was cheap to have fixed...I think it was less than $100 at the dealership.
