I had the same problem too. Everytime my tennis ball hits a car, the alarm goes off for 10 seconds to 1 minute and either times has the owner come out to see what the darn problem was. If he did come I'd just tell him I keep dropping the ball and also the ball just heads towards his car.

SOURCE: the car alarm keeps going off for no reason and

There is a sensor on every one of the doors, including the hatch. One of them has gone bad and is telling the computer the door is still open. That is alerting the car alarm system and setting it off. The one that usually goes first is the hatch, but the only way to test is to take each of the switches off and do a resistance test on them.

I had the same thing happen to me when I lived in Las Vegas. Mine was a 98 Rodeo also with factory alarm. I took it to a shop but they said it was the radio waves that caused it to go off and I could buy a new one. I had to take my horn fuse out b/c i didn't know what else to do at the time. Then I moved and I never had the problem again.

it could be your sensitivity on the alarm. some have shock and or vibration/ motion sensors. this is a common problem. a shop that does car alarms can confirm that, and its usually an easy fix.

MY CAR ALARM KEEPS GOING OFF FOR NO REASON


Your car alarm has a sensitivity setting if the sensitivity is too high it will set off the alarm if the wind blows too hard or a heavy vehicle drives by in close proximity turning down the sensitivity will solve this problem

CAR ALARM ISSUES


It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.


There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

Car alarm keeps going off for no reason. What do I do?


I would first check the hood switch. They are plastic and tend to break or come loose. It is located near one of the cabin filter housings, I can not remember which one. It has a small rod that sticks up about 1/2 inch and has a two pin connector. Just disconnect it. Good luck.
