My toyota kluger Grande 2009 alarm goes off randomly... Usually after using the rear glass hatch. I close the glass hatch, Remote lock it and within a couple of hours the alarm is going off.


If there are any insects or such the motion detector in your car may be detecting them. Your opening and closing of the hatch may be letting something in??

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 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.

My switch wont turn and alarm keep going off so how can i turn the switch


You can possibly not have the correct key and the door lock caqn be frozen with ice. The lock it'self might not be frozen but the locking mechcaizem may be. Try different doors as all the door locks will reset the alarm even the hatch. Just unlock it twitce and all the doors should unlock and the alarm reset. A locksmith can open the door for you if you think you have a key problem and once oped the battery can be disconnected the doors clsed with the window down and the key in the on position and then connect the battery and the computer will think the car is already on so the alarm will not be on and then you can turn the car to run and start it and get in and go.

2001 Town and Country 3.8l LXi When I open the each the passenger or driver side doors the alarm will go off..wont stop until i start the car. Does not happen when the doors are opened with the key...


the door does not have a key reccognition system,only the ignition,
so if you use the key,without first disabling the alarm,the alarm will go off,SO use the remote to unlock the car and the key to start it....no problem....

Car alarm went off reset went off again within 3 min had tomanual lock , dome light on while driving


it sounds like you have a door open that is why the light is on. it may not be a actual open door but a faulty door ajar switch. that would explain why the alarm keeps going off. i would start by opening and shutting all doors includingthe hood and hatch.
if that does not fix it-a gm dealer with a tech 2 scanner should be able to located which door ajar switch is bad.

The car alarm keeps going off for no reason and the door adjar light stays on


There is a sensor on every one of the doors, including the hatch. One of them has gone bad and is telling the computer the door is still open. That is alerting the car alarm system and setting it off. The one that usually goes first is the hatch, but the only way to test is to take each of the switches off and do a resistance test on them.

My 1997 Grand Cherokee laredo has a problem with the rear hatch open/closed sensor; the ''brains'' frequently thinks the door is open when it is not. This is annoying when driving, leading to blinking...


the rear hatch issue is due to a faulty latch assembly or needs adjustment. replace that latch issue should be resolved. but u can access the wiring to it by removing the hatch panel and seperate the connector at the latch assembly , this should turn out the light, and also keep the alarm from going off!! hope that was helpful!!

Alarm activated,lights are flashing can't start vehicle


if alarm is activated, it could be shutting off the starter, hence no starting....you may have to have a locksmith or electronics place disable the alarm so you can at least drive the thing
