Question about 2001 Acura 3.2CL

Open Question

The car alarm goes off every 5 min. in my 2001 Acura CL 3.2. I was told there were sensors under the hood and the trunk that may be bad, do you know where they are located? I don't see any fuses marked for the alarm, how can I troubleshoot the alarm?

SOURCE: acura cl alarm problems???

To all you Acura alarm sufferers. In the immediate term to appease your neighbors - open the door and reclose, leaving the door ajar enough that the interior door light is still on. Be sure to turn off the roof light so no one is cued your car door is ajar.
When you can go under the hood, remove the fuse - I think it is 15 - the fuse box cover has a diagram. I left the fuse out for a couple of hours and reinserted it. That broke the pattern for 7 months.
It is 89 degrees in chicago today, the alarm went off at the train station and I got a ticket for noise disturbance.
It's time to look at the fuse box again. i think extreme temps are the problem.

1997 acura cl buzzing noise always on at start up


where is it , in trunk , under hood, under dash>? guess dash.
is it the seat belt buzzer , on?
new car to you?
the operators guide covers all ways it can buzz, many.
if not, then use a rubber hose to hear, I use 1/4" I.D fuel hose,
and listen under dash, for who is buzzing, once we establish who
when work why.

My honda alarm keeps going off while car locked


there are sensors in each lock cylinder, trunk, and hood latch. Is it an ex? try locking the car with the remote, then use the key to unlock each door, if the alarm goes off, that's the bad switch. look in your fuse panels and see, I'm pretty sure if you pull the fuse to disable the alarm, you will lose your power locks

Trunk release button on door or remote of my 2001 Acura Cl does not open the trunk. Any idea what is wrong?


If it has aactory installed alarm it will do what you described. Disable the alarm functions and try it again. Also check the closed sensor on the trunk lid. It may just think it is already open. Also check wires from the trunk lid the connector may be unpluged

2001 mercury sable alarm goes off for no reason


Most all alarm systems have various sensors for detecting such things as vibration, heat and or movement around your vehicle and so forth. If these sensors are set to sensitive and or are defective the alarm system will be more of a nuisance than a deterrent. Hope This Helps
If this is an OEM type of alarm you might want to contact your dealer for this information.
There are 2 sensors which you have to be aware of. One is under the hood and one is in the trunk. Disconnect the trunk sensor and check whether the car will function normal.

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

Alarm sounds when I unlock car


unlock driver door twice consecutively to deactivate alarm.
Now under the hood u will see a mushroom shaped sensor near the coolant bowl,that's the open hood sensor for the alarm. That wire gets frayed over time and falsely triggers the alarm. Fix or replace the wire and or sensor if it is that one causing problems. Just unplug it and u will see if problem goes away, then u know it's that one that's faulty.
There is also one sensor in the trunk, but don't remember where on a golf. Should be easy to find and if i remember it has one white wire on it. Could be behind the panel cover on the trunk lid. Disconnect it if u need to or do the same as the one under the hood, meaning fix/ replace as needed.
Hope this helps.
