Q: Alarm went off in Panic mode

asked by on February 02, 2016

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.
