    Default HELP!! Compustar alarm keeps going off

    So last night at around 1 am my alarm went off. So i get out of bed and look out my window and no one was there so i disarmed my alarm and relocked the car. Then at 1:30 am the car goes off again so this time i go outside and check it out and nothing out of the ordinary soi go back into sleep.

    Then later on around 12pm in the afternoon i start my car with the car starter and after about 1 minute the car shuts off and the alarm goes off. So i turn it off and then 2 minutes later the car alarm goes off again. So at this point i was pretty frustrated and just left my car unlocked. Someone help me please!!

    Some people will fuck with your alarm just to make you turn it off out of frustration. Sounds like a bad install though, take it back.

    For a temporary fix you could put it into valet mode(sleepmode) so you could still lock it and not worry about the alarm going off until you bring it to get fixed.

    Here's one I see all the time (including my car): the trunk switch is defective, or the light is out in your trunk. Most of the time, the best way to link to the trunk being open or not is to tie into the light. If the bulb's out, it can give a false positive. Likewise if the trunk light switch isn't closing properly, the same thing can happen.

    If you have the 2-way, check and see what's causing it to go off.

    That tells me that the brain is dead. You'll have to take it to a compustar installer and get a new one put in. Should be under warranty.

    the one reason why your car starts and shuts off..
    maybe your tach wire is not connected properly.

    the remote starter will start the car and your car will send a signal from etheir the alternator or distributor. when the compustar module sees the signal it knows the car is on. when it doesn't the module will think that the vehicle didn't start properly and shut the car off and retry. after few tries it gives up.

    check the tach wire and try to do the tach learning again
