How old is the alarm? If you have glass breakage detection or motion sensors installed one of these could be faulty. If the alarm is more than a year old and it's an after market alarm it is possible the alarm is faulty and needs to be replaced. There is a fuse in the power supply line, usually running along the firewall between the power point and the alarm. Remove this fuse and the alarm should be deactivated but the ignition kill switch will not be active so you can use the vehicle and the siren will stop going off.

You can disconnect the wires to the horn but the vehicle won't pass state inspection if required.

Antitheft system keep goes on I can't start vehicle


Use the remote to deactivate alarm or use key in the door lock to unlock the door. The problem you had is when you lock the door and the alarm activates it must see a disarm signal or else it thinks someone broke the window and used the switch to open the door.

I had my battery change and now when I turn off the vehicle and lock it a few minutes latter the horn and the light start going off. WhaT can I do I have a 2004 ford f150 extended cab


It sounds like you have a factory security system. Even if it is aftermarket they sometime t need to be reset. First find out if the security system has a balance system. This will set off a horn or alarm if the vehicle is rocked or moved. If not, try resetting by unlocking all the doors with remote. Disconnect the negative cable and leave it off for a few minutes. Then reconnect it and start the engine, turn it off and lock the doors and wait. Beyond this I have nothing further

Alarm goes off radomly and sometimes when you press the open button the horn sounds three times.


Usually when the horn sounds 3 times on opening its telling you the alarm has gone off, it sounds like one of your switches has poor connections, a auto electrician should be able to fix this fairly easily.

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.
