I doubt it is the alarm, but a simple way of checking is to unplug it.. look under drivers dash for an aftermarket box, unplug the connections (after charging battery) and wait till next day.. I think you might have a diff issue (I have installed these for over 10 years and never seen one actually discharge a battery)

Renault Megane is draining the battery over night, in the past the alarm has gone off a number of times during the night so I would prefer to disconnect the alarm system completly to see if this solves the...

I would have your alternator and battery checked after doing a simple inspection of all your power functions. If something is draining the battery fully overnight your battery may not be getting fully charged, or the battery may be old. If the vehicle only does city driving - then once a week you need to dive the vehicle at least 20 minutes of straight driving so the battery gets charged more than it needs for everyday operation of the vehicle.

Simple inspection: Check all electronic devices from radio, tv, phone chargers, interior lights are working properly and fully shut off. If a switch is half way, example; interior lights set from "door to on" the light may not be on - but there is a slight draw all the time on the battery.

Once we had our dashboard light on all the time but it was turned down so faint with the dimmer switch you could not tell it was actually on. It seems like a simple thing but it drove us crazy for two days until we discovered what was up.

If everything checks out then you need to see a mechanic. One thing you can look for under the hood or dashboard is that all wiring is properly sheathed and there is no damage to the insulation around the wires. Again, have them inspect the alternator, (battery charging system), and the battery. An alarm system by itself should not be that taxing to drain your battery overnight.

Best of Luck.

Reconnect battery

the battery in the alarm is probably flat and the alarm is working off the car battery. They are designed so that if some one Is stealing the battery the alarm sounds and when both batteries are working the alarm is triggered by another source.

I have a blue flashing light that flashes when I set alarm and car is off . Is this normal and will it drain my battery ? ( 2002 Nissan Pathfinder )

the flashing blue light is to let potential thieves know that there is an alarm in the car. it uses minimal power and should not drain your battery.

Van Alarm keeps going off during the night, for no reason!

yes, the sensitivity can be adjusted. is it a factory alarm or did you have it put in? Ford's have a tendency to cross wiring causing alarm to go off every hr or every 2hrs it will be consistent. next time time it.

99 Chrysler 300M alarm running battery down

battery was just drawn down so much that when it regained power it set the alarm off which flashes the lights. I would put a charger on the battery for a few hours untill its charged and that should solve the problem
