Q: Alarm system firing

asked by on

The alarm system is firing.

Hi. I am unable to find any information on a factory alarm for your car. Is it an aftermarket alarm? Here’s a few things to check. Check to make sure all the doors are shut securely. Close them while you are inside, lean against them, if the dome light comes on, they need adjusted. Check the hood switch. Make sure it is being pushed down by the hood. That’s all I can tell you without knowing what type of alarm is on the car.
