What would cause a 2008 Chrysler sebring to blare the horn in one continuos beep upon pulling the key fob from my purse? It has done this twice now and the only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery cable and reconnect it?

Asked by Nov 12, 2014 at 06:31 AM about the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On two occasions (both at 5am in the morning) I have pulled my keys out of my purse and had the horn start blaring in a continuous beep, not the alarm intermittent beep, and nothing on the key fob would make it stop, I then used the fob to unlock the doors and started the car and it still continued.  Finally all I could think to do was pull the battery cable, of course with no power to the horn it then stopped. I then reconnected the cable and it seemed to reset things back to normal.

Is there a panic mode on the key fob? If so try keeping the keys out of your purse, use a lanyard or some similar to hang your keys up when not in use, there maybe something in your purse that sets off the panic setting, if that don't work then change out the fobs battery.
