Re: nissan maxima 2001 panic alarm goes off for no reason
Hello, I had the same problem with my 2001 Maxima. The dealer suggested new key fobs, but the eventual fix was the car battery. When the battery is on the way out, the voltage drop is enough to set it off, just as it would if there was a voltage spike when someone breaks in. I have no problems now!

double posted. wow.
when it beeped, did you look in the display (RPM)
it tells you why?? the VFD or EVIC tells you why.? (rpm dial)
do you park with the alarm on , on the street or a garage?????
if in a garage park and turn alarm off. it does turn off the alarm.
did you bump the panic button?
eg its under your pillow?? LOL or the cat chewed it?
read your other post, it's got lots of answer there.
to find cause.
if the horns stays off, if alarm is off then its not the horn button.
as many will say. there are 4 things that run the horn.
panic.(part of alarm but not totally)
on my car, i have most themn turned off, like the lamp flashings.
and the horn chirp is off on all my cars, all i get is the door lock click sounds, nice (neighbor friendly)
so turn all all that and see if the horn still fails.
that panic button can fail,
if mind did id pull the fob battery and then use FOB 2.
to see of the FOB fails.
your other post said driving
this one says, parked. 3am clue.
the remote key would be the easiest (and cheapest) thing to try first but i don't think that a low battery in the fob would activate the alarm randomly , i'd get the OBD codes read as will point to which part of the anti theft/central locking system is causing the issue
Factory alarms rarely false alert, maybe someone did tamper with the car and ran off before you saw him. The one thing that will often trip alarms is a bad battery in the car, have it tested. Your car may have an add-on alarm in which case anything goofy can happen. It's odd that you had to hit the panic button to shut the alarm off, but if it functions normally otherwise it's unlikely to need a new battery. Is it at all possible that you hit the panic button and that caused the alarm to sound? If it was in your purse or pocket maybe it got pressed in which case it might be normal for you to have to hit panic again to turn it off.
When you say remote is damaged??? How is it damaged?? If it has gotten really wet or broken it is possible that if near the car meaning close enought the remote could be activating the alarm itself. Some of those remotes have a panic button on them and or can act as panic by holding two button same time
