Alarm Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi all...by the way, this site has been an awesome resource for me so far. Looking for some clarification on a no-big-deal subject.

('99 Boxster) Sometimes when I set the alarm, the lights blink twice and the horn sounds...sometimes the horn doesn't sound. What gives?

That was a 'fast reply'. Thanks very much...but umm...you're talking about the center console where the driver's right elbow is kind of at? That's kind of weird that if that's not closed properly (or has a bad switch) that it affects the beep. The point being though that the security is relatively the same with and without beep, right?

I do not close the storage box all the way on purpose, so when I set the alarm I hear the beep. The reason is that I am usually walking away from the car in a hurry by the time I push the button on the remote so I cannot see the lights flash. But I can hear the beep. All other alarm contacts are on and protected, just not the storage box. With the top down and the red clip on no one is going to be able to reach into my car without setting off the interior motion detector.

If you have the lid on the box closed and latched and get the single beep then it is like Loren said. A bad alarm switch on the latch, or a bad switch on the front trunk latch.
