When my alarm goes off, it usually happens when someone sticks their hand in the window to unlock the door. In order to turn off the alarm I close whichever door the person opened back, and unlock the door from the driver's side door. This usually turns the alarm off.

SOURCE: 03 Chevy Suburban says right rear door ajar when closed

Replace the rear door pin-switch if needed after testing proper operation.
It is telling the alarm the door is open all the time.
Most likely corroded terminals or wire.

Alarm goes off for no reason


It can be any of the car door 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 needs to be inspected.Its getting short somewhere in between.

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

Check under the hood. Often, there is a small switch that needs to be closed when the hood is shut. This switch sometimes comes loose and when the hood is closed the button is never pushed. Find the magic button and reattach it to it's mount so that the hood will press it when the hood is closed and that should solve the problem. This button works with the alarm system.

We've lost the key fob and need to use the spare key to enter car with out alarm sounding.


if you unlock the driver door before opening it with the key you can turn the alarm off. Also taking it to a electronics place and having a keyless entry system will bypass the factory alarm as long as you tell them to hook it up and in most cases its less than buying a new factory remote. Also if you dont lock the car with the lock button from the driver door before you close the door the alarm will not arm.

My car alarm keeps going off, I made sure all the doors are shut properly and all the windows are closed. What else can I do to make it stop? '99 ford escort


Depends. If it is an aftermarket alarm that didn't come with the car those are easily removed by undoing the wiring for the alarm box usually underneath the steering column. If you're not comfortable with wiring issues, a local shop should be able to do it for around 70 dollars, one hour labor. Factory alarms are different. There are door switches that regularly go bad for your car that can usually be determined if when all your doors are closed the dome light stays on or comes on. There should also be an indicator on the instrument cluster. Usually it's the driver's door(most used) that goes bad. If this malfunctions while the vehicle alarm has been set the antitheft system will think someone opened the door without unlocking it. Replacing these switches usually require removal of the door latch on the inside of the door panel. Sometimes spraying lubricant through the keyhole will help these switches work... for a while. And if all else fails, you can always unplug the horn... Good luck!

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.

Have a 1998 lincoln continental that has factory alarm. but i dont have a keypad. i would like 2 disarm it, it goes off for no reason.


if its an aftermarket alarm, which im sure it is, find the brain to the aftermarket alarm and unhook it. trace the brain back from the car alarm siren hardware. it shoud b mounted somewhere under the hood. theres not a lot of available space in the engine compartment. so you should easily find the siren hardware. trace the wiring back to the brain and disconnect it. it cant be factory alarm. factory alarm only goes off when u dont use keyless remote or key to unlock a locked door or trunk. factory alarm blows horn and blinks parking lights

When I bought my 2001 Jimmy, it did the same thing. Searched the "net" and found the solution. Open all the doors and clean the light switch buttons. Sometimes they get dirt in them. This worked for me. I've never had this problem again.
