Question about Pontiac G6

1 Answer

My car alarm seems to go off about 6 or so hours after i have set it, usually at night or near the end of a shift at work, i thought maybe i left a light on or something and thats causing it to go off.. But i have checked everything... I've had the alarm sound before when i've left interior lights on, but that was after only a few minutes after being set.. I'm thinking my battery is draining and the alarm is being triggerd...i dunno, i'm a bit lost...Would a new battery fix this?

Why does Stabilitrak Off fault light come on when trying to pass a car?


I have a 2008 model. I am assuming the stabilitrak button(on my SUV) located next to the geer shift is turning the stabilitrak system
on and off OK? If not maybe just this switch is bad?
Unfortunately my stabilitrak alarm indicator has started coming on
periodically too. Mine seems to get reset after driving it for some
time then stopping and restarting after several short trips. I'm not
sure if mine is a real issue if it goes away after a while of driving.
The last time my "check engine" light came on also. When the
traction control alarm went away, so did the check engine alarm.
Good luck.

After the alarm has been set for hours, the alarm/horn beeps. No one is near the car when this happens.


After market? A good one last about 5 years. Factory maybe 7 years (even factory installs are after market). Junk ones, 1 to 3 years. Pull it out and repair the wires as you go. Every car I see these in, I pull them out. The car works fine after that.

I have a 2005 Ford Escape Alarm is going off for no reason at anytime day or night


I had something similar and when all was said and done I found mice had crawled up into my air intake and were living in my dash chewing on my electrical wiring harness. I thought my car was posessed by ghosts or something.

What is the tdc? I have no idea where it is located!


what is tdc,
tdc is or means TOP DEAD CENTER, on engine timing terms.
about the alarm, European models cars may be set different than American cars. but if the are the same and this es a original alarm from the actuary, i suspect that is very little you can do, it is posible that you park somewhere were the terrain trembles, like a train near by, or the vehicle is exposed to high winds and shakes, or parking to close to other cars or cars that constantly moving, or near the highway were trucks go by, sacking and moving will make the alarm go off.

Fuel pump won't be the cause. Most likely the relay.

Alarm Randomly Going Off


You say its different when its cold out. I am thinking the this alarm system is an after market type.I think this alarm circuitry is worn out. I would remove it and buy a new system.

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.

Alarm keeps going off at night


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.
