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.

The alarm keeps going off for no reason i had to unhook the battery,what can i do?


Check for a battery drain ie:trunk light or glovebox light staying on
make sure all the door catches are closing properly spray the locks with wd40, Including the hood and trunk catches, check the radio is off properly, You made need to get a electrical drain check done by an electrical expert ?
Hope this helps

Why does my 1999 Lincoln Continental alarm system go off by itself and then shut off after 5 or 10 minutes?


this could be the door striker plastic has broken off this is the post sticking out of the frame when you close the door the lock closes around the striker to keep the door closed this striker could also have moved slightly from opening/closing the door thousands of times try this open your windows get out close all doors set the alarm wait a minute then try to lightly move the door/s in and out by grabbing the door at the rear part where the door locks to the frame where the striker is if it has any play in it the connection will break and this will make the alarm think the door has opened and the alarm will sound getting the door to close tighter will stop it from happening this is also true for the trunk if you press down on the trunk or your able to pull up on it a little the same thing will happen its loose and will trigger the alarm if this is not the problem I would then go to the door pin switches that turn the lights on/off when the door is opened/closed especially if the alarm was aftermarket installed but you can be sure the alarm thinks that something is opened and the door/trunk/hood are the only places that they are

Hyundai accent 5DR 2005 car alarm keeps going off..


It sounds to me all you need is to adjust the trunk hatch. Its going out when you hit the brakes so the switch isn't bad. It may be worn but if you can push on it and the light goes out it is the reason your alarm is going off. Make sure there isn't debris under the rubber seal preventing it from fully closing.

My car was hit in the right rear quarter panel which caused damage to my trunk area but that was a couple of years ago but for the past year when ever it rains I get water in my trunk only on the right...


Remove trunk liner. Put a light dusting of baby powder down. Close trunk and wet rear of car with hose. Check for leaks. May be a tail light leaking.

Have a 1998 lincoln continental that has factory alarm. but i dont have a keypad. i would like 2 disarm it, it goes off for no reason.


if its an aftermarket alarm, which im sure it is, find the brain to the aftermarket alarm and unhook it. trace the brain back from the car alarm siren hardware. it shoud b mounted somewhere under the hood. theres not a lot of available space in the engine compartment. so you should easily find the siren hardware. trace the wiring back to the brain and disconnect it. it cant be factory alarm. factory alarm only goes off when u dont use keyless remote or key to unlock a locked door or trunk. factory alarm blows horn and blinks parking lights

Lots of rain, lots of things not working now


Is it a convertible? Mine has the same problem and the electronic control panel is located in under the rear window. I think moisture accumulates and short circuits the control panel. I am not a machanic but when it dries out it is fine.

ALARM GOES OFF ON ITS OWN. IT DOES NOT RESET.


try this:

1. find the trunk (boot) sensor (plunger) and tape it in the down position.

2. recharge the battery.

3. close the trunk and rearm the alarm.

4. listen for the alarm to go off. if it does proceed to step 6. if not see step 5.

5. the travel is too large for this trunk sensor. must have been caused by the accident. you can build up the area with some velcro or tape where the plunger meets the metal to make the travel less, thus making the alarm system think the trunk is not opened when the trunk is closed. or this sensor was damaged by the accident which will to be replaced.

6. the trunk sensor is not the problem. untape it and proceed to the hood (bonnet) sensor. tape it down and repeat steps 1-4 for the hood sensor.

7. keep repeating on the other sensors (doors, fuel door) until you find the sensor causing the problem.

good luck
