Hi,

Most alarms would kick off only when triggered or when faulty.
triggered - could refer to even false triggering, that is even if no intrusion, the sensors senses something and falsely triggers the alarm. This is the most common cause.
Almost all alarms make use of the door switch (the same door switch that triggers the dome light). Since these switches are more prone to being wet, dirtied or accumulate dust and grime, they are more prone to be the culprits. In most instances, it is a matter of remove, clean and reinstall. In some cases, it could be the wire 9to these switches) that were crinked by the door, panel or any metal part thus creating a short to the ground;
Another possibility is the alarm itself. Most alarms have a logic circuitry with external sensors to provide state/condition of its sensors. It is a simple low/high condition. Dust, weather condition (dampness, cold) could affect the sensitivity, electrical characteristic and therefore be falsely triggered. For this, it would require familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and perhaps even a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified electronics professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Alarm system keep going off ,only way to turn it off is adjust battery or unhook the battery.


Did you try double tapping the door open button to stop the alarm.

If it keeps going off you need to visit a dealership if it is a factory alarm or an alarm installer if it is an aftermarket alarm.

2011 chevrolet tahoe security lockout... how do I reset it?


CAR ALARM ISSUES


It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.


There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

Factory security system intermittently going off. Wondering if it is a bad sensor or switch. Does the door LED flash a code? 8 long flashes followed with normal short flashes.

Car alarm keeps going off


Is the switch in the center counsole switched to off? It should be. Alarm will still work but will work normal. If you have an owners manual it will tell you about the alarm settings. 3 different settings.
I had same problem with a 93 Pathfinder. If switch is off, everything works fine.

I have a mercedes A class and the alarm keeps going off even when i am driving it


it's a simple problem because the alarm set button on the fob is where you grip to start the car. start the car, arm the alarm! just hold the front and back of fob not sides when turning it.
