Question about 2003 Honda Civic

Alarm keeps going off at night

My alarm on my Honda Civic Exec has been going off about 6 times per night over the last 2 nights. I thought that someone may have been tampering with it but I watched last night and it just went off for no reason, this doesn't happen during the day at all, is this something that happens with this model? It's a 2003 plate.

I don't know the exact reason, but my dad had a problem similar to yours. He got a device from Ace Hardware (it was a decoding mechanism I believe) that you hook up to your car (on his car, which was an Oldsmobile, it was on the left interior of the driver's side door rite up by the steering wheel area) for only about $15-$20 because his engine light was always going off for no reason. Yours may have something to do with a faulty wire somewhere along where the alarm is, though. The decoder doesn't exactly let you know precisely what the problem is though (I believe it has a manual though), and my dad is a mechanic, so be careful before you try anything yourself, as you may do more harm than good. Good luck.

I have a 57 civic hatchback and for no reason the alarm keeps going off randomly mainly at night. Some nights is fine but once it goes of I can set the alarm watch it from inside for a few minutes and it...

1957>??? really?

all alarms are a box with a processor in it, a computer, or puter.
the alarm brain.
so like all computers, garage in , nets you,? garbage out.
called GIGO, in the business.
on newer cars 07+? they will tell you what is wrong, using a scan tool
but many old cars , (my big beef) will not. (best is to kill it forever )
(imagine, all 6 billion cars on earth all with false alarms, a world H3LL that , huh) mines off all the time. nobody listens to them. ever.

fixing old alarms with out my special tools is very very hard.
if lucky , inspect all sensor wires, then replace all switches.
old switches fail and for sure 1957 LOL !!!!!!
in my shop I have a voltage (and others) data logger.
i can connect my logger up and then beat up the doors.
rattle them, even drive and see them mess up.
it logs to a flash card.
old wiring and parts on old cars, all fail.
due to wear and corrosion or water ingress.

some alarms have shake switches, that can tip.
the FSM for your, explains all this if alarm is stock.
nah 1957 hand none. right?
the FSM book covers all tests of the alarm.
get one.
if car is not really 1957
then login to and see your stock alarm
if not stock , then post all sticker data on side of it.
or photo it and post it.

tell more get more ,like WHAT CIVIC EXACTLY, there are sub models.

98 ford escort horn goes off at night when its really cold

can be 4 things, as is true with all puters, as that is what it is.
1: bad inputs to the alarm (wires are corroded, shrink cold and fail)
2: bad sensors.
3: bad alarm processor.
4: bad outputs, ( the horn is a shared resource , so can be the horn stuck?)

to find this take real hard work. and tools for monitoring all inputs
to the alarm and see what fails. THE FSM covers all that
read the FSM and ask questions if any.

Honda civic alarm keeps going off for no reason

It could be the hood latch. Easy to disconnect just look behind the hood latch under the back edge of the plastic cover,. clipped into metal top frame. 2 pin connectors LT BLU + BLK=wire colors. Connector has a release tab to separate. press down and pull apart. Voila! When you lock the car, you will not hear your horn. Neighbors are happy and you get no more complains.

Car Alarm keeps going off on 528i (1999)

I had a similar problem, 2003 530i, but only while the alarm was active. The culprit was a bad hood switch that was making intermitent connection.

My 2007 ion car alarm has been going off for the last two weeks atleast three times at night and there would be no one around?

does it have a sunroof? if so it is leaking a shorting out one of your door switches. pull the door switches and check for corrosion- there are on either end of the dashboard. either way that is probably the case, a bad door switch, very common
