1999 oldsmobile aurora headlights go off in middle of night and sometomes alarm


It sounds like you have a malfunctioning alarm system. If it is an aftermarket system, you should simply turn it off. If it is a factory alarm it would really be best to take this to a dealer. In the mean time, to prevent battery drain, you can disconnect the black battery terminal at night when you park the car.

1998 Pontiac Bonneville, Horn & Lights go off for no reason


leave the car unlocked to see if it does it. it sounds as if the bcm is defective or perhaps a door sensor. is the car kept in a garage? check to make sure you don't have animal prints on the car. sounds wierd, but an animal can shake the car just enough to trigger the alarm. then by the time you get to the car it is gone.

How to disable alarm on 1999 dodge durango


Battery removal will not work. What will work is this: Use key to lock and then unlock driver's side door. I unclipped both horns at passenger side of engine compartment at front because they will go off while you are doing this procedure. I used this procedure last night after a rear passenger accidentally set of my alarm. I know this works! My vehicle is a 99' Durango.

this happened to us when we got a new key and had it programmed with the car. anytime we locked the doors and opened them with the key instead of the remote, the alarm would set itself off. we took out the fuse for the alarm.

On my 99SW I had that problem once, gave it to the girlfriend and it happened twice. I replaced the driver door light switch, based on a google search result, and it has not happened again. It may be an accident but it worked, so far. It was a new switch, obtained from getsaturnparts.net

Alarm keeps going off at night


I don't know the exact reason, but my dad had a problem similar to yours. He got a device from Ace Hardware (it was a decoding mechanism I believe) that you hook up to your car (on his car, which was an Oldsmobile, it was on the left interior of the driver's side door rite up by the steering wheel area) for only about $15-$20 because his engine light was always going off for no reason. Yours may have something to do with a faulty wire somewhere along where the alarm is, though. The decoder doesn't exactly let you know precisely what the problem is though (I believe it has a manual though), and my dad is a mechanic, so be careful before you try anything yourself, as you may do more harm than good. Good luck.

Alarm going off


My 2001 TD5 discovery has the same problem and this started in the last 18 months.
Normaly the car is parked in a locked garage, and the car is not locked.
The alarm does not go off during the day when parked anywhere even when parked for long periods.

When we are away camping in the bush or caravan parks, if I think of it I remove the "horn fuse" under the bonnet at night and replace this in the morning, if I dont do this the alarm does not go off every night, but I rather do this, than me and everyone at the camp site being woken up at 0300 hr'
Maybe it is the night temperature, ??

I hope this is of some help. John L.L
