Check for broken wires in the round rubber boot between the drivers door and the body (in between the door hinges). Same happened to a friend of mine. Repair the wires and all is well. He got his drivers door speaker back in the process.

Alarm,,,pull fuse or dismantle


Most car alarms have a small back-up battery inside them... just replace the battery and keep using it. If it's broken, get a used one from a junkyard. Pulling the fuse is the safest option as many cars have a link between the factory alarm system and the ECM which won't allow the car to start.

The alarm system on my 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GL keeps turning on by itself


You must have the dealer keep the car until this fault occurs and then scan the security system to see what is causing the triggering of the security system. It is very possible that the drivers door ajar switch or latch switch is defective and it triggers a false tampering signal.

Aplique alarm 6 14 keeps coming on randomly


The only alarm system I've had is my 12ga with deer slugs.

It shouldn't be too hard to either turn it off, or find the problem power supply. I am thinking the power to the house may have blinked off and on at some point, and the logic of the alarm is freaking out as a result.

Is there a backup battery for the alarm system? If not you could try turning off a circuit breaker at a time until you diagnose which one is powering the alarm system. If you find one that turns the alarm pad off. Leave it off for a few minutes and turn the breaker back on to see if it will reset itself. If the alarm has a battery backup try to remove it and again turn off the circuit breaker. Also search your book for resetting the alarm system.

Keeps starting with out key on


mcdevito75 here, If the car has an alarm system it could be with that system. Turn the car off, get out and lock the car with the remote, then open the car with the remote and see if the alarm system resets itself. Have your local shop check it out.

Nissan 2007 Frontier tire pressure monitoring system


You need to set all the pressures to 35 psi. first then drive for approx.1/4 mile. If this doesn't work to reset the light (keep in mind the code itself will still be stored even though the light goes off) you will need to take it to your Nissan Dealer to have it scanned as there may be a malfunction with the sensor. If faulty and you are under 36k miles then it should be covered under your factory warranty. Hope this helps.

Possible "stealth" lock down of truck


the truck will not start because the alarm is engaged. that is a saftey masure for new cars and trucks so that way someone who is stealing it can not get far. if part of the alarm was dismantled (disconnected) than it will not allow you to start the truck you will either have to completly disconnect the entire alarm system or take it in and have it hooked back up and reset so the truck will start
