Having problems with your Jeep Liberty ?

My jeep just started blaring its horn in my driveway. No one was near it and the horn is not beep-beep-beep like the panic indicator--it is full out psycho blaring. I unhooked the battery however that is going to make it a bit difficult to drive to work; any suggestions for my psycho jeep?

Answers :

Open the hood and look in front of the radiator and locate the horn and unplug it you may need to get under the front of the car and look up behind the front bumper at the front of the radiator no tools needed unless you have to move a plastic panel .
It is likely the button in the steering wheel has shorted out. Unless you can get it to stop by pulling up the button, the steering wheel will have to come off for repair; and this requires special tools. In the meantime, you can pull the horn relay out of the fuse box and reconnect the battery.

After the battery was replaced on the car, the key less entry does not work correctly, when you lock it, the lights do NOT flash and the horn does NOT beep, when you unlock it the lights DO flash but the horn doesn't NOT beep.

How do you reset the TPMS on the 2001 Cadillac DTS. Replaced tires tire shop said one sensor broke. They replaced sensor and now it reads zero() PSI. Can this be done without going ot the dealer? I tried turning the key to "ACCS" mode and then holding the "lock" 'Unlock" button at the same time until the horn beeps. This part works however then my instructions said lower or raise the pressure for 5-8 seconds in the tires and each tire sensor once read, would cause the horn to beep telling you it

Sometimes on my 2001 aztec, the alarm will go off on its own, start/stop, start./stop; and one time just kept going...one long beep until we unplugged the horn fuse. A lot of times also, after we park it, it makes this loud buzzing noise for a few minutes and the lights stay on too. Eventually will go off after 10-15 mins. or so. Sounds electrical to me. Any ideas about these problems??? Alterntor? We just replaced the battery a couple of months ago, but it's still doing the same stuff.
