My 2004 Chevy Colorado alarms 2 hours after shutting truck off and activating alarm. The radio comes on and the truck acts like the key is still in ignition andb turned on. H ave to put key in and out 2-3 times to get the power off. If I just lock doors (no alarm) it seems to be ok. ANY ideas???

You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.
Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.
I have a Saab 93 Vector and although my key does not have that function my manual says the following; 'Press once - Turns on exterior and cabin lighting, for 30 sec, or turns off lighting. Deactivates panic alarm. Hold and press for more than 2 sec - Cars with car alarm: panic alarm (activates alarm manually).
There is another section that says the button turns off lights and larm when activated and the car remains locked. The panic alarm can only be activated when the car is stationary and it will be silenced when the car is driven away.
Hope that makes sense. Enjoy your Saab 93 - I know I do every day.
Since the passenger door doesn't get used as much as the drivers door, check to see if the switch is not just stuck. It is a little button with a spring that opens up and turns the light on. It is located on the hinge area of the door and when the door closes it shuts off the switch, if it is not stuck then I would suspect said switch.
The start circuit is getting power from somewhere and its timed to come on in 2-3 hours.Bazzar!!Does the truck have a remote starter your unaware of and something/someone is activating it accidently/on purpose?
