  • lindywil Oct 10, 2008

    My LG top loader is doing the same thing - washes a whole load fine and then gets to the spin cycle and tells me there is a door error. Can it be fixed by myself, or does it require a technician?

    Thanks.

The door switch may be malfunctioning so it is not making good contact and therefore not sending the message that the door is closed.

HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

2002 explorer anti-theft system activates while I'm in house (static). Might anyone have a probable cause ?


The "Proper" way is to use a scan tool with access to body body theft data. Usually alarm events set a code identifying which trigger set the alarm. "IE - B1234 Left Rear Door Alarm trigger Activation.

Since Most people dont HAVE an IDS or NGS or SnapOn...
You can try activating the alarm. all doors closed with windows down. wait 5 minutes. physically grab the top of each door panel thru the open window and shake the door hard like you were trying to pull it open. If its a marginal switch (usually is) the one thats borderline will trigger "open" with minor shaking and the good ones will show fully closed unless the door is in fact fully opened. If the shake test triggers the alarm on 1 door, then you know its either the pin switch (if it has one, not all do) or the door latch out of adjustment or defective.

I have a golf my 7, I can lock but leave a door open and no alarm goes off !


Hi
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but easy to try so here goes. I can press the remote button for locking and setting the alarm on my BM whilst the boot or a door (other than driver's) is till open. It appears to lock and nothing else happens - ie the alarm does not go off !!! However, when the boot or door is closed - even 3 - 4 minutes later, the indicators flash in the normal way and the car is locked and alarmed.
Maybe your car does the same. No harm in trying.
Cheers

Why does my 1999 Lincoln Continental alarm system go off by itself and then shut off after 5 or 10 minutes?


this could be the door striker plastic has broken off this is the post sticking out of the frame when you close the door the lock closes around the striker to keep the door closed this striker could also have moved slightly from opening/closing the door thousands of times try this open your windows get out close all doors set the alarm wait a minute then try to lightly move the door/s in and out by grabbing the door at the rear part where the door locks to the frame where the striker is if it has any play in it the connection will break and this will make the alarm think the door has opened and the alarm will sound getting the door to close tighter will stop it from happening this is also true for the trunk if you press down on the trunk or your able to pull up on it a little the same thing will happen its loose and will trigger the alarm if this is not the problem I would then go to the door pin switches that turn the lights on/off when the door is opened/closed especially if the alarm was aftermarket installed but you can be sure the alarm thinks that something is opened and the door/trunk/hood are the only places that they are

Alarm burning issues. Electrical or just a cheap alarm?


means you have a shorted wire, it keeps touching the body or a ground wire causing the door to say its open. you also more then likely have a bad door switch. check the simple things first

CAR ALARM


put your key in the drivers side from the outside door and turn the key one time to the right to lock your car and two times to unlock it and if your having trouble with the alarm going off open the trunk with the key to disable the alarm if it turned on.

Car Alarm/Door lock


This happened to me too...It turned out to be that my door was out of adjustment, which caused the door position sensor to not know whether the door is closed or open. Sometimes my light on the inside of the door would flash (because the car thought that the door was open). Once the alarm did activate, the car would sometimes think that the door had opened, thus causing the alarm to activate. It was cheap to have fixed...I think it was less than $100 at the dealership.

Ademco Alarm System - Zone works opposite? Triggers on (door closed)/ Stay Off (door opened)?


i dont think it polarity not unless alarms in the usa are different from nz aus uk sounds like you have a faulty something. try open and closing the front door and look at the keypad to see if the zone activates as it should. there can only realy be 3 things. device, cable or panel fault. you can easly test the system by swaping the zones in the panel ie zone 1 to 2 and 2 to 1 providing that they have similar zone charectorists ie "entry exit" if the fault moves to the other zone you know its a device fault.(inspecting the cable for damage is probably the easy thing to do) if its a reed switch you could look at the position of the magnet it may be making borderline contact and a slight movement of the door could be tripping the zone. if the fault doesnt move its a panel fault. before you jump in though make sure that if you dont comprimise your protection or insurance by trying DIY security. good luck (if you have no joy post more details)
