Have you had the system checked and the codes pulled? If so and nothing was found,you can bypass each alarm trigger one at a time. If you have the patience, do this yourself and park the car where it happens. If the alarm stopsgoing off wrong,you have found the trigger and/or circuit setting it off. Sometimes this is what it takes because the system is operating in it's parameters and will not set a code? Good Luck.

Rav4 alarm sensitivity


No there is no such adjustment. The system has a faulty part, likely a door latch anti tamper switch that is affected by the cool temperatures at night. You will need to contact the dealer for testing and diagnosis

My alarm on 2002 ford explorer goes on at random at night. Door ajar light comes on internittently. Any ideas on how to fix or disarm the Alarm?


most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

Our 1998 Saturn's alarm goes off in the middle of the night, during the day and whenever it feels like. No one is around, no one is touching the key fob. The alarm came with the car new. Is there a way...


On my 99SW I had that problem once, gave it to the girlfriend and it happened twice. I replaced the driver door light switch, based on a google search result, and it has not happened again. It may be an accident but it worked, so far. It was a new switch, obtained from getsaturnparts.net

Alarm Malfunctioning - 2004 Sable


Have your battery checked for shorts. Mine was defective on a new Lincoln. Same problem. Even sat in it at 18 degrees one night to appease neighbors whom my alarm woke up.
Check connections at every possible point if the battery tests good.
Get up 30 minutes before alarm usually goes off and see if neighbor has loud car or slams his car door. Motion sensors can set it off too.

2002 ford explorer-alarm goes off in the middle of the night...no one around Alarm goes of whenever it wants to. I don't lock my doors, because when I unlock them the alarm goes off and will not stop even...


At one point the door was lock from the in side and then closed and then unlocked with alarm, try un-locking it from the drivers door, then from the in side push the un-lock button and then close the drivers door. U should have no problems with it, but they do say that putting the key in the ignition and then do what you would like starting it but don't and do it 2 times and then start it will tell the alarm that it is not stolen.

Do u know that key less entry code to your drivers door?
Let me know if you would like your code that is if you don't know where to look.
