My anti theft alarm keeps going off, but only for about 1-2 minutes then stops, then it continues. The only way I can stop it is to keep the drivers side door unlock. Is there a fuse os something I can simply swithc to fix this?

Hi
Reset the computer and leave the battery out for 10mnts.
Try resetting the alarm system. One possibility is to put the key in the car door, turn to lock the door, then turn again to open it in order to reset the alarm.
However check the bellow instructions which may help you resolve your problem…
Find the shut-off switch for your alarm system. When your alarm was installed, the installer most likely equipped it with a shut-off switch to allow you to turn off your alarm system at any time. The shut-off switch is usually located below your steering wheel near your feet and is hidden so that thieves can't find it. Your installer should have shown you where it is. You may have to hold it down for three or four seconds for the system to shut down.
Disconnect the fuse on the alarm in your fuse box. The fuse for the car alarm should be marked on the box, or you may have to look at your car owner's manual to figure out which fuse to remove.
Find the alarm's fuse. It may be in the fuse box, usually located below the steering wheel to the left. Many cars also have other fuse boxes (sometimes three or even more) inside the engine compartment. If it's an aftermarket alarm (installed after the car left the factory), you'll find the fuse under the hood, usually on a wire connected to the positive battery terminal.
Locate the fuse that has the alarm label. You should find a fuse diagram on the lid of the fuse box. An aftermarket alarm won't have any label. Don't worry; removing the wrong fuse won't cause any damage. If you pull out a fuse and the alarm stays on, put that fuse back in and try another.
Disconnect the battery. This option is a last-case scenario. Turn off your car and remove the keys. Two cords that power your car run up to the top of the battery where they are screwed on (think of the positive and negative connectors you use when you jump start your car). Use a wrench to unscrew the side nut of each connector. (Do the negative side first, and when you reconnect the battery put the negative side back on first.) You should be able to lift the connector up and off of the battery. This method is most helpful when you have a car alarm that is going off at night, or when you are not actively using the car.
Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

What is causing the anti-theft alarm light flashing/horn blowing go off?


the remote key would be the easiest (and cheapest) thing to try first but i don't think that a low battery in the fob would activate the alarm randomly , i'd get the OBD codes read as will point to which part of the anti theft/central locking system is causing the issue

The remote needs to work if the vehicle originally came with the remote from the factory. It gives off a signal to the ring around the ignition switch to deactivate the alarm.

You should have disconnected the battery and fully charged it before starting the car.
The low voltage may have damaged some of the electronic components in the alarm system.
Charge the battery fully, then reconnect it and see if that helps.

Anti theft alarm goes off when no one is around mostly at night or early morning sometimes when driving door locks keep locking and unlocking and interior lights go on


You have a short in your Electrical system where the alarm connects to your power assist system or a short in your alarm. Pull the fuse for the alarm and if the problem stops it is the alarm if it continues you will need to trace the connections and make sure they are secure and protected by taping them up.

Put the key in the driver door lock (or the trunk lock if you don't trust the driver's door- quite often on a vehicle of this age the wires break in the door and it won't electrically de-activate the alarm due to the broken wires)
Disconnect the battery.
Turn the key to the unlock position (toward the front of the car if using the driver or passenger doors) and release it- it will go back to centered, but will retain slack in the forward direction
Then reconnect the battery. You may get one beep out of the alarm horn. If it beeps continually, turn the key to unlock again.
As long as the alarm is de-activated it will not prevent the car from starting. If you are still having a problem it is not alarm related.

Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help
