Question about 2008 Pontiac Torrent

My car alarm has gone off twice for no reason. The keys were inside the house and the alarm still went off. It is a 2008 Pontiac Torrent with approx 68000 kilometers. Any ideas as to why?

You might just need to have sensitivity turned down or,was it hot out? If it is an after market alarm, sounds like they installed a mercury vibration sensor, These tend to go off easier because, as you know, mercury expands when hot. Making the contact gap more sensitive. I would be suprised, but it's worth looking into. Very old school set up.

Back hatch won~t open with remote or inside door locks will open manually nothing stuck or jammed?


Found this wiring diagram for lift gate, if that is what we're talking about? Not only check the fuses, check fuse circuit for voltage. Use a testlite.

Can the security lock light on a 2008 pontiac torrent be reset from key fob so the vehicle can be started ?


I don't know anything about the 2008 Pontiac but I bet the makers know. And assembly workers had assembled this model at the factory. Bet they may know something. Liberties have clues researching their stock of workshop manuals on the Torrent. And I bet entering key words of the fault in a search engines on youtube that may produce some interesting youtube videos on the torrent. What ever the choice you make I hope you come up with something that may help.
