SOURCE: nissan maxima 2001 panic alarm goes off for no reason

Hello, I had the same problem with my 2001 Maxima. The dealer suggested new key fobs, but the eventual fix was the car battery. When the battery is on the way out, the voltage drop is enough to set it off, just as it would if there was a voltage spike when someone breaks in. I have no problems now!

SOURCE: panic alarm going off intermittently

I had the same problem on my 1997 F-150. It was an Aftermarket Alarm. (Varmit) The problem is that the Mercury switch is failing inside the alarm box, underdash. Lightning will set it off. The Fix;
Take the truck to an any aftermarket alarm seller and replace only
"THE BOX". No other parts need replacement. Don't let them sell you anything else. Should be approx. $100.00 at the most.

SOURCE: Same Problem - Xterra Panic Alarm Keeps Going Off

If you are close to the truck when it happens, try removing the battery from the remote. Some times when remotes are worn, they can send out a constant signal setting off the alarm, unlocking the doors and so on. I would try that first. If it stops, then you verified the remote is the problem

Thanks Jay!

SOURCE: 1995 jaguar xj6 vehicle security system has gone

On another vehicle I have had, a slowly failing battery that would have its charge fall below 12 volts when parked overnight, would cause the alarm to go off. The alarm sensor would read that some kind of electric signal was drawing current, as if the door was open and no alarm release signal was received, so the alarm would go off in the middle of night as if a break in occurred.

I have a 98 ford expodtion lost the key and tor into the ignion plz help.


OK. So you lost your key. People do that all the time. That's what spare keys are for. But you apparently don't have a spare. So you tore into the ignition to try to get the vehicle to start. Now you are realizing that the vehicle has safeguards to prevent just that from happening (we call what you tried to do "hot wiring"). The reason that the car is designed that way is to prevent theft and therefore reduce insurance costs. Money saved in order to have a spare key.

So you made some stup1d mistakes.

  1. You lost your key.
  2. You didn't have a spare key.
  3. You destroyed your vehicles ignition system
And now you want help. Unfortunately, you can't fix stup1d.
Call the dealer, get it towed, have it repaired, get a new key AND a spare. And after you spend that $1000.00, consider it a lesson learned.

Sounds to me like you need a new ignition switch. Take the vehicle to a mechanic and have them further evaluate.

Explorer alarm goes off randomly


There can be many things causing this. In my experience a bad battery can short while the vehicle is parked. Its easy to have tested and Autozone or Oreillys will test your whole vehicle free.

Next possibility would be dirty Battery cables or loose battery connections to the Ground wire. Of course, some vehicles have additional triggers for Glass breakage and motion. Sometimes on cars with Autoload leveling, the Air pump will work to level the car and the Alarm will sense the current draw and vibration and go off.

These Alarms are not foolproof. You have a "Panic" button on your remote. If another person has a device casting this signal your Alarm will pick it up and activate. Your Dealer may have testing equipment for your system to correct the sensitivity of the unit. I hope it is simply a bad battery and your problem will go away with a new one.
