Q: Alarm went off in Panic mode

asked by on

The alarm went off when key was in Panic mode. Now the horn, trunk, and windows won't work.

This sounds like a good time to check the owner’s manual to see if it mentions this at all. If it’s an aftermarket alarm system, it may need to be manually reset through a certain procedure that is model specific. I would suggest having a certified mobile mechanic run a full diagnostic on your electrical system at your home or business.
