my car alarm goes off while i am driving.

My car has 55000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. If your security system is going off while you are driving then that could indicate a possible electrical fault with the system. It may be possible that there is an issue with the module, the computer that controls the system, which is causing it to malfunction and go off while are driving. Another possibility is an electrical short in the system’s wiring that is causing the alarm to go off mistakenly. It could also be possible that there is an issue with the remote or receiver. In either case, I would recommend having a professional look at the vehicle, as these sorts of electrical issues can sometimes be difficult to diagnose.
