    Default Car alarm keeps going off

    Hey all,

    My car alarm KEEPS going off, every morning, somewhere between 7 and 8 am. Have NO idea why, is there anyway of telling what sensor is causing this, and any ideas why it's pretty much every 24hrs??

    Come to the A/G meet at Don Paul's and I'll hook up tech2 to it and it will tell which sensor is setting if off.

    In the meantime, try hitting the man running away icon on the dash left hand side of the radio next time you exit the car, this will disable the ultrasonic sensors inside and will remove one possible cause of problems.

    could be the pane break its normally worse when the sun is on it, check the rear quarter windows for scratchs normally caused by dogs

    Thanks all - the car is an '02 LS, I hit the "man running away" button last night, strangely the trip odometer stayed illuminated, and again this morning it went off!

    I not on a main road so nothing's driving past, and I'm 100% no one's winding me up lol. Also - i could go out right now and shake or kick the car and it won't go off!!

    IS there a dedicated fuse I can pull out for now, I'm really not fussed about having an alarm for now.

    Your insurance company might be fussed though. Disconnecting it would mean your car no longer has a Thatcham cat1 approved security system fitted.
