I don't think that extra little chirp or beep is causing the battery drain. However, manually go around the vehicle and test each door individually by you holding in the door pin and see what door is causing the open zone chirp. Also check and see if the mirror lite on the sun visor on the passenger side was left on by your last primping female passenger. I had a customer who drained 2 brand new Optima Yellow Tops till we accidently found it while he came to my shop to see if we would trace the drain because he couldn't find it. While walking away i noticed the vanity light on the psgr sun visor still burning bright and so i asked him and he said a bunch of cuss words, laughed and gave me $40.00 because he felt like an idiot. I donated the cash to the bar next door....

After I set alarm, it chirps once then 2 seconds later it chirps once again!!


That second chirp is a status alert letting you know a zone was not able arm yet. Most common reason is that the dome light its not out yet. It arms itself as soon as the trigger goes to sleep.

Chevrolet faults


You may have what is called a parasitic draw, simply put something ( an electric circuit or component ) is emptying your battery of its power. It may be as easy as something that was left on like a dome light or a faulty electrical circuit component. First look and listen inside your vehicle with the doors closed for any lights that remain on or sounds of something running. There's a start good luck.

Car alarm goes off 30 seconds after disarm and open a door


Apparently the alarm is set to passive arming and, once you disarm it, it immediately begins the arming process and it is not registering the door being open. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the alarm door trigger is wired to the dome light and the dome light is turned off; an issue that occurs with GM vehicles that have a dome light override switch. What's the year, make and model of the vehicle?

Mts mode for preset manual trans auto start function enable,does not allow car to start, instead the park light blinks seven times and give an error tone ... Thank you


There is a sequence necessary to set the Viper every time you exit the vehicle: park the vehicle, put in neutral, place foot on brake, set parking brake,remove foot from brake, remote start vehicle with remote, remove key (vehicle should remain running), exit vehicle and close door, arm the alarm with remote (vehicle should shut down). The system is now set for MTS remote start. Test the system by remote starting the vehicle now (it should remote start at this point). If you open any door after the MTS remote start has been set, you will have to do the programming sequence again.This is a safety feature because something may have changed, i.e. parking brake released when the door was opened. You have to do this sequence each time you park the vehicle if you intend to use the remote start feature.
If this does not work, there may be an issue with the installation, i.e., the door trigger connection. Using dome supervision as a door trigger won't work because during the arming portion of the above mention programming sequence(when the vehicle shuts down), the interior lights will illuminate and the Viper will read it as a door opening. So, actual door trigger wires must be used.

Alternator is good brand new battery still want hold a charge 1991 buick park avenue


If you have a test light available disconnect the negative cable and connect the test light to the cable and to the battery.If it lights up you have a parasitic load.Something is using power when it shouldn't be. A very dim light or acceptable parasitic draw is about. .015 amps depending on vehicle options it could be all the way up .025amps. If the test light is pretty bright it has a large load pulling it down. Finding parasitic draws can be quite time consuming. You can leave the test light connected and start pulling fuses one at a time till the light goes out or gets very dim. This can help you find what circuit is causing the draw. Once you find that particular circuit you will need to find out what services that circuit supports. Example the cigarette lighter may run the accessory lights such as the dome. You will need to find out what is on the circuit to start figuring out which component is dragging the battery down.

98 Dodge Durango no electrical power


When the armed Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed after the battery is reconnected. The alarm can be disarmed by locking the vehicle and turning the drivers door lock to the lock (arm) position. Wait a few minutes then unlock (disarm) the drivers door and the vehicle should start.
If the VTSS has been disabled in the high-line Central Timer Module (CTM), the VTSS feature must be re-enabled using the Chrysler DRB scan tool. The clicking you heard was probably from the CTM located behind the glove box.

How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run


Alarm Module Reset Procedure
NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.
