That’s twice now where I have come out to my parked car only to find lights are flashing and message on DIM says alarmed activated. Is this the first sign of the good old alarm module failure?

Yes. You're lucky, as I think sometimes it just goes off and the siren sounds...

That's what happened when mine failed a few years ago.

Yep sounds like alarm module failure to me. If your quick at this point
(and so inclined) you can save a good bit of money by removing it and replacing the internal battery. Mine did the same and is currently on my desk awaitng a new battery.

Mine did this a lot too when the alarm didn't work. It killed the battery a few times.

Thanks fellas. I had the foresight to grab an alarm module from yard a while back for just this situation so I guess I will go ahead and replace.

Is anyone else’s repair list getting out of control?
