My car is a convertible. The alarm will go off every time you use the key to open the drivers door, the key does not work to unlock the passengers side. Initially thought we solved the problem by taking the batteries out of key fob which was pronounced non-working by the last owner. Wanted to see if it would work regardless and put some new batteries in it. First time the alarm was going off, took the batteries out of the key fob and the alarm ceased after maybe three minutes instead of running the whole duration, then it was drivable for the rest of the day without the alarm going off. That was two days ago. This morning my son gets up to go to work and the alarm is going off yet again. The car is still drivable while the alarm is going off! It is just really annoying.
The drivers side door is bent slightly out of shape due to a recent accident so that the edge of the door is slightly exposed to the outside. We live in a very humid/rainy climate so maybe the weather has some sort of effect on it?
Anyway, I was wondering how to fix this without going to the dealership. Will a new key fob fix this? Something else?
have the same problem?
