Q: Q: Car alarm going off for no reason

asked by on

The car alarm in my vehicle is going off and I don't know why.

This could be caused by the hood switch. Hyundai has a technical service bulletin (9-BE-026) where the rubber bumper that keeps the hood switch depressed needs to be replaced with a new improved thicker one. My recommendation is to have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, interrogate the alarm system and make the necessary repairs in order to avoid unintended alarms.
