You are watching: Acura tl alarm keeps going off

About 5 minutes after I lock the truck, the alarm goes off for a few minutes and then goes away after a few more minutes.It sort of started after I took a swim with my remote clicker for the truck (I only have one). I was thinking that maybe there was some sort of short that is causing Panick button to go off, but then why the delay? All functions of the clicker work fine fyi.I”m a bit lost of how to troubleshoot this. (My neighbors aren”t too happy since sometimes alarm goes off in the middle of the night as well).Looking for help.Mark,2002 MDX
Try not locking it and seeing if no alarm. If that”s the case, then sit in the car, make sure the dome light switch is set to “door,” pull the key out of the ignition, and lock it. Wait the 5 minutes and see if the courtesy lights come on when the alarm goes off.If that happens, then you”ve probably got a door jamb switch problem. Sit in the car with all the doors closed and push on the door panels like you”re trying to open the door. If any of them trigger the lights and alarm from flexing the door, then you”ve got a bad jamb switch there.

The problem went away. I think the trunk gate may not have been closed all the way. The only remaining problem now is that when I press the remote key twice, there is no horn sound indicating alarm set. I just hear a locking sound. This usually happens when one of the doors is not fully closed but I checked them all and they are.

I had a similar issue with my accord. In my case it was an issue with the hood latch which has a switch to tell the system it is closed. Just like the doors, if it is not closed, the system will not arm. Also like the doors, if it is opened when the system is armed, the alarm will go off.If you release your hood, but not open it, your alarm probably won”t go off. Anyhow, obviously that”s not a permanent solution. But you may need to replace that hood latch.
I forgot to mention, if you are pushing the lock twice and the horn isn”t sounding, again the alarm simply may not be armed.The switch on one either the hood or one of the doors may have gone completely bad.Good luck
