In Reply to: Nonexistant alarm went off! posted by Lobo on March 04, 2001 at 12:09:22:
My daughter and I were getting into my '01 2.5i this morning when it started honking at a rate of about 2 beeps/sec. It was in the garage, unlocked and with the top down. We had both opened our doors and I may have inserted my key. I'm pretty sure I hadn't turned it yet.
To try to get it to stop, I inserted the key and started the car a couple of times, but to no avail. I also turned off the radio. I finally decided to try disconnecting the battery, but just after I opened the trunk, it stopped. I assume that it may have stopped because a specific period of time (1 minute?) had elapsed.
Can anyone explain why my alarm went off when I don't have an alarm?
If you did not pay for the system and it is there(obviously) , then just figure you are a lucky guy! Next! Happy Driving
