    is there some easier way.... why does it even do that?

  • daviddino Nov 04, 2008

    I have this issue of multiple alarms! If I set my alarm for say 7:00 am, it may go off at 5:45 am, and many times leading up to the 7:00 am alarm, resulting in me getting much less sleep! It seems that past alarms were repeating themselves. This has been an on-going problem.

The solution is a follows; If you have any legit alarms already set, disable them before proceeding

1) As soon as the unwanted alarm goes off , look at what time your phone says it is and make a note of it. (if you know EXACTLY what time it goes off at, then go to the next step)

2) Goto Start -> Clock & Alarm -> Alarm

3) Set the alarm time for the exact time from step #1. Set alarm to On.

4) Click Done, done, and done

5) Goto Start -> Clock & Alarm -> Alarm

6) Change the alarm to Off.

7) Click Done, done, and done

That's it, the alarm should now be disabled for this unwanted alarm, if you have multiple unwanted alarms, repeat this procedure for each.

Here is what i did. It seems the alarm will ring at that certain time each day right? like for example my alarm rings at 5:00 PM every single day. and for some reason it will only do it once during that day....so if i set up my phones clock to 5:00 pm again and use the same date it wont ring again. But if i change it to 5:00pm tomorrow it will ring again. So i thought hmmm.....why not just change it to like the year 2020 and put it at 5:00pm. So i did this and boom all of a sudden the alarms started ringing like crazy. b/c its gonna show all the alarms it missed until 2020. and all you have to do is click menu while the alarms are ringing and then hit dismiss all. Thats it. now i dont get those ******** alarms anymore. And you can use the alarm feature now without any problems.

I know exactly what you are talking about and have had the same issue but there is a way to fix it but it takes time. I used to have alarms going off all the time until i realized that there is a specific way to which to "shut off the alarm" and dismissing them wont get rid of them. The phone keeps the alarm times in memory unless you get rid of them. I found that when you want to "get rid" of an alarm you have to into the alarm that is currently set and change it to "off" then click the middle silver button and another screen pops up to choose "off" and then press "done". That alarm wont come back and then you can set up another but if you just choose off and then set another alarm it will keep it in history and go off and if you select dismiss at that time it will remove it.

This is a known (and ignored) problem with the dash, caused by poor programming. The only solution I've found is to install a copy of SKTools...the free version will work, and go into the "notifications queue" and remove the pending alarms you don't want. The problem is the dash queue's alarms for the next 4-5 days every time an event is scheduled, but doesn't remove them when it is canceled.
Throwing the phone really hard across the room at 5am also works, but is kind of permanent, and not recommended....
I've heard the problem is the same on WM5 and WM6.

Hi,
I used the SKTools, but the list didn't include the 4:00am alarm, only the 7:15 alarm (which I deleted). Should I be worried that my phone will alarm for 4:00am tomorrow. This is becoming a major pain.

Alarm goes off but after pressing done it sets off again for about 15 times...its irritating


  • Connect the Dash to an AC outlet via the power adaptor to turn it on. The initial setup wizard should appear if this your first time turning it on.
  • 2Touch "Menu" on the bottom left of the HOME screen. Then choose "Clock & Weather."
  • 3Choose either "Quick Alarm" or "Custom Alarms," if you've previously set up an alarm. Tap "On" to turn it on or "Off" to deactivate your alarm.

    I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring. I bought it used last year, so I am not too familiar with the car alarm in it. The alarm was fine until my battery died a few months ago. After the car was jumped, the...


    Ok, try this.
    Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
    all the way just before cranking. Then within
    5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
    valet/overide button, found under the
    dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
    until the installed LED (the blinking light)
    in your dash area goes on solid,
    and the siren chirps once.

    (Your valet switch might be the toggle
    (on/off) type. in this case, key on,
    flip switch in opposite direction,
    then turn the key off.)

    This should reset the alarm, and reset
    the grounded relay on the starter wire,
    allowing you to start the engine.

    At this point, the only thing working would
    be the keyless entry from the alarm,
    if it came equipped that way.

    Just Repeat these steps to place it
    back to usable armed mode.
    You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,
    and the lights may flash twice as well.

    Alarm goes off at midnight & repeats for half hour, and not set


    what you have to do is
    1. press the mode button until you get to the setting that has "AL" at the bottom right.
    2. then you press the "receive" button to switch between the four alarms.
    3. as you are going through each alarm time, you need to look in the circle at the top right. When you are going through the alarm times, if there is a mark next to "ALM", you need to press the "time memo" button so that the mark next to "ALM" is no longer there.
    4. repeat step fout for all of the alarms, and the problem should be fixed.
