Car alarm


Recommended Posts

Good day 

I am from QLD - Bundaberg.

I am sure when I lock door, they are actually locked.

My car alarm goes off randomly at anytime of the day Mainly when I'm home and at night. 

Interior lights go out when I close doors.

I have recently cleaned my terminals.

I replaced the battery about 2 and a half month's ago because previous one was flat.

This issues started about couple of weeks ago - it is bit cold here 

I have now disconnected my battery as of tonight an manual locked my car as I'm tired of the alarm going off

Ive been to a mechanic to have car serviced and battery changed at the same time an it's been happening ever since 

Kind regards

Hi Luciana, You're probably not aware but your hood is also a part of the security system. This sounds to me like your hood switch is malfunctioning. I'm surprised your mechanic wasn't able to offer a solution.

You can either replace the micro switch or just bridge the connection permanently. Second video will show you this.

Have a watch of this video
