I had a similar problem, So I finally just quit locking the car. As long as I didn't leave anything of value in plain sight, I thought, what's the point of locking the doors. If a thief wants to get in your car, a locked door isn't going to stop him. He'll just break a window and get in anyway. So, I figure at least I wont have to replace a broken window if I just leave the doors unlocked. Plus, on most modern cars, if a thief tries to circumvent the ignition system to steal the car, the antitheft feature built into the car's computer will disable the engine so it won't start.

How do I get my alarm system to chirp instead of beep when it goes off or when I lock my doors with the remote entry key fob?


Check to see if your vehicle honks when you press the "lock" button on your key fob. Press the "lock" button multiple times in a row. Many devices won't beep unless you double-tap the button after locking. If the horn doesn't honk, but the lights flash, your chirp feature is probably disabled.

Use your keyless fob and ignition key to enable the audible chirp. The process varies considerably on different makes and models. You must usually consult your owner's manual, a dealership or the alarm manufacturer for the correct process.

Car alarm goes off when unlocking door


You will needs to think of it this way. Once you set your alarm it is looking for the corresponding signal to disable itself. That comes from the fob. If you don't use the fob and just use the key, the alarm system is doing its job and alerting you since it has not received the disable command from the fob. Either lock the door with the button when you exit the car if you want to use the key or use the alarm fob. This will also happen if you use the car manufacturers fob to unlock the car if you have locked it with the alarm manufacturers fob.

Hope that helps - I have hidden all of my original car fobs to help alleviate this problem!

Key fob wont re set on my ssan yan rexton


I recently changed the battery on my key fob for my ssanyong rexton. I then did the following for the key fob to make it work. 1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold both buttons on key fob until red light on fob stays on. Then let go of both buttons. Then pressed the alarm button then the panic button, somthing like that. To be fair the button sequence after the red light came on is a bit vague. The alarm was blaring so i was happy when it just stopped.

Had the alternator replaced 2 days ago and during the night the alarm goes off lights flashing honking use the key fob to turn it off and takes a while for inside light to go out stays quiet for a while...


Hello, sounds like you need a new battery. As the battery goes flat the alarm senses it and sets off the warning system. Try changing the battery first and test it during the day. Also check to see if there is anything draining the power. You may also be able to adjust the alarm settings manually. Failing that, the alarm may need replacing. I hope I have helped.
