About 3 weeks ago my alarm started going off randomly. I took it to my indy and they told me there was a fault in the trunk switch and the left drivers door switch. They replaced the switches and the problem was fixed. or so I thought. Now the alarm is going crazy again. I took it back to the indy and no faults. the interior monitor is reading ok. I am at the end of my rope. does anyone know how I can just disable the alarm. As long as the car locks I am fine with no beep.beep.beep.beep. No body looks or helps when it sounds anyway, right?

This is common in aftermarket systems, if the voltage gets to low it trips the alarm. I know Nissans do it as well. If there's a drastic change in voltage somehow, that could do it. Dome light, phone charger, faulty audio equipment.... I know our cars log "low voltage" but that's only while the car is running to monitor the alt. I don't think it monitors w/ the car off....someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
