Yeah, my car alarm siren just randomly went off this afternoon and didn't stop. After a while, it was not that loud, kind of like a 1/4 of the highest it can get. I started up the car, it went away for a second, then came back. I pulled the fuse and it went away. As soon as the fuse goes in, the sound returns...weird.

Good thing it didn't happen at the park yesterday--the old folks would've been flinging sauerkraut at you for interrupting the polka music!!

Battery is a good call. That's what happened on my stinkin' Lincoln LS <spits on ground>. The best part was that it was at 4 in the morning.

Re: (GiRaff3)

Mine's been dead ever since I got my car (about 7 months ago). Found that a while ago. Haven't bothered doing anything about mine...<p>But, why have the dealer do it? Is your car still under warranty or something?

The sunroof and alarm are very much related. A new alarm module will fix your problem. Dealer cant replace just the battery of the alarm.
