1. Make sure you have a (EOL) resitor on the curcuit, it should be at the switch, but you can cheet and have it at the panel, but if your wire would ever get damaged you would not know about it 2. If you had to hammer in the switch it could have damaged the switch to a closed state and wont open when the door opens, the switch should just be pushed in not hammered 3.If the switch is installed to close to a magnet wheather stripe, that will hold the switch close 4. If it is a steel door and steel frame, and the switch is a surface switch with screw terminals, you could have some stray wires shorting to the steel frame 5. make sure your magnet is lined up with the switch

SOURCE: PIR Intruder alarm magnetic contact

Hi Bowdi,

Please find the below the information on the contacts.
You will fine two silver screws - This is your Alarm pair and this will go back to the alarm zone on the panel PCB.
The three other brass screws are just junction screws so you can join the cables to go to other doors.
You will need to join the black and blue together to make the tamper circuit.

Regards will

How do i stop the aslarm system from going off each time i open the door


Start by cleaning the door contacts - push em in and out by hand 50 times or if metal type clean with emery paper
Could be any one of the contacts or a bad earth - factory fit alarm or aftermarket? Sounds like an auto electricians job or an alarm installer if the simple stuff doesn't work

Sounds like the contacts in the buttons are not making contact.. you may want to try taking the remote apart and cleaning the contacts and seeing what happens. If the remote is truely dead you may need a new remote

Interior car alarm wont stop


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 is a help link with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these link.

What is an open zone?


An open zone means that a door or window is not completly shut and properly aligning the contacts or sensors. If you know what zone it is open and shut the door/window check the contact and make sure it is making a complete connection-closing the zone. You can bypass the zone and arm the rest of the system, if you can tell me your brand of alarm, I could tell you how to bypass.
