98 Forester alarm goes nuts randomly!
Posted 20 April 2005 - 10:30 AM
This has started happening more and more frequently. Last night it happened at like 3:00am in the morning. I'm writing this on a very bad night's sleep... I went out and drove the car around a bit -- that didn't seem to help. I finally got the wise idea to just leave it unlocked, and that worked.
Anyway, any thoughts on what's going on here? I just got a new radio installed but the alarm was definitely acting up before that time. I also happened to drain my battery the other day playing around with the new radio with the car off. I got a jump and now the car starts no problem. But perhaps that's my problem -- low battery? My battery is the original one from 98.

If a new battery doesn't cure the alarm problem then I would suspect that one of the alarm switches is causing this problem. You could try bypassing them to see if you can find the problem that way.
