I have a 2001 mercury cougar, the headlights were left on last night and the battery died. So when jumper cables were connected to the battery the alarm started to go off. The fuse was removed and put back in several times but the alarm keeps going off. Whats a way to fix this? i do not have a remote for the car.


You can probably pull the horn relay to kill the horn while you are working on the problem.With the battery connected to a jumper, try locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key. If that works, make sure the battery gets charged befor ... Cars & Trucks

I purchased a new car and the alarm keeps going off without sufficient reason. At first it seemed like a sensitivity problem, since it would issue a warning blast for loud noises(slamming doors, garbage trucks). But the dealer said they turned it to the lowest sensitivity yesterday and it still went off again twice in the middle of the night. Could something with the car electrical be setting it off - bad connection, interruption of power supply, etc.?

Horn My car was parked in the garage today and suddenly the horn just went off by itself, constantly. I couldn't get it to stop, so I disconnected the battery. Then when I connected the battery again, the horn didn't go off (at that moment) but the airbag flashed on the dash constantly and the daytime running lights wouldn't come on when the engine was started. After about 10 minutes after the engine was stopped the horn started going again! There are no modifications to the car, no alarm, or re

My truck has no power. it wont go above 2.5k or 3k rpms and struggles with the slightest of hills. this problem developed slowly and then suddenly got worse while driving recently. the check engine light is on and on my way home last night it would blink from time to time.

Last night my Alarm on my '06 Tacoma went off twice (a little after midnight and again around 1:30am)...and again at 7:20 this morning. Pretty windy last night, but I've never noticed my stock alarm be that sensitive. One of my Tenents said they heard the Neighbor kid getting yelled at yesterday for making his mothers alarm go off...is it possible he's got some kind of transmitter to make my alarm sound or is this just a fluke?


I'm not sure that is possible without having your key in your ignition. When reprogramming keys or transmitters they would all have to be reprogrammed to work with your vehicle at the same time so as long as your current keys and transmitters work I' ... 2007 Toyota Tacoma

I am trying to connect an aftermarket alarm to my 1998 Pathfinder. Everything is connected and working, except the remote door lock and unlock.

When set to a negative pulse and each wire connected to the light green/red(lock) and brown (unlock) wires on the pathfinders keyless entry module, only the passenger doors and rear doors work.

I have a hawk microwave sensor connected to a viper 330v alarm - because of multiplexed inputs the warn away pre alarm comes on when microwave sensor is activated. This does not change to full alarm because the signal sent is less within 0.7 of a second - which only activate the warn away. I need the signal to be sent at 0.8 of a sec to get full alarm trigged. I think a relay may help but am unsure how to wire. thanks for your help.

Hyundai accent alarm doesnot activate. I had an accident recently. I crashed into another car from my front left side. After repair, my car gets locked via remote, but alarm does not activate. The mechanic said maybe the staff unplugged a fuse, but they are not sure. Is it possible whether they forgot to install the plastic piece on the hood activating the alarm? (When the hood closes it touches a button connected to the alarm system) Any different solutions? Thanks..

Alarm issue with '97 Jetta: Power locks lock all the doors, then minutes, sometimes hours later the alarm just starts going off. It stops when I unlock the power locks from the drivers side door. I've tried slamming all the doors tight, and looking at the battery connection, can't seem to figure out what makes the alarm go off. Locks still work and car starts and runs without alarm going off. Do it myself suggestions? (Please include details of what I should try at home).

I bought my '98 Accord from a private person so I don't know anything about the alarm system.

After shutting off the engine, my Buick Park Avenue (94) makes a noise I've associated with the rear shocks. It still makes the noise, but suddenly my rear shocks don't seem to function. The car bounces in the reaar as I drive. This happened suddenly. Is there a switch or perhaps some electronic connection that is failing which might cause this? It happened too suddenly and nothing happened from driving the car that I noticed that would have caused the rear shocks to suddenly go out. Prior
