yes its a aftermarket alarm

Hmmmm..I guess what I would do is contact the manufacturer, sorry I can't be more help that's all i can think of


If factory alarm like my 91 gt the switches in the doors are probably bad. If it is factory use key to open trunk or passenger door if those switches are good this should disarm it. I ended up having to by pass door switches just to be able to lock my car. No alarm now tho

Good one! Thanks. Lol


if i open trunk no alarm but doors yes


Sorry don't know about after market systems. They probably not tied into trunk like the factory ones. Good luck.


Is it controlled by key fob? If so is battery in it still good? Just an after thought.

thaks hope someone can help


whats a key fob? lol



I had the same problem with my 97 Riviera where the alarm was triggered when I opened a door and would not respond to the fob attemting to turn it off. It turned out to be a poor connection on the Battery. Once I fixed the connection the problem went away.
