Alarm wont stop going off

Hey guys
So Im sleeping nice and sound this morning at 7:30 am when suddenly my taco's alarm goes off. I jump out of bed, fumble for my keys, and unlock my truck to stop the alarm. I make sure nothing is around my truck, like an animal or thief...nothing.

I lock my truck and go back inside to go back to sleep (actually, I should be up getting ready for work). Right when I get back into bed, the alarm goes off again. I run out to switch it off...still nothing around my truck. This time I lock my truck and wait there to see what happens. sure enough, about 5 seconds after my truck is locked, the alarm goes off again. I unlock and keep the doors open so it wont lock again.

I get ready for work, hop in the truck, starts up just fine. I arrive at the office, get out, lock my truck, start walking away...and sure enough, alarm goes off. Theres nothing i can do except disconnect the battery and manually lock the truck. Problem persists all afternoon, i have to disconnect my battery everytime i lock my truck. WTF is going on?!?!

I have the factory alarm system from the dealership...never modded it, never touched it. Ima take it to the dealership tomorrow, but any of u guys have any suggestions?

Sounds like your LT kit is messing it up... better send that stuff to me just to be sure.

I had a problem like this, but with an aftermarket...had to bypass one of the sensors because it was in an always "on" state. Haven't heard of a factory alarm doing that though...

Hmm...are your doors shut securely (I assume they are)...I don't have much input on an oem alarm. I lived in a high-heat [weather] area for awhile and my non-oem alarm did the same thing (another vehicle)...I never figured out what it was, but when I moved to a more temperate climate, it didn't happen again. Is CA experiencing a heat wave?

I had a Viper that whacked and would go off for no apparent reason, turned out to be a bad contact on the drivers door pin

I had a Chebby quite a few years ago where this would happen when the battery was weak/failing. Alarm saw it as someone disconnecting the battery to disable the alarm.

If your battery is low, that will trigger it.

A way thieves get around alarms is drill out the batttery fluid it kills alarm....then get in, then pop hood swap batteries or jump it and vroooooooom...their gone with your ride.

Most alarms are wired in to the system such that easily bypassing them does not work (kinda like they designed it that way :-). You might be able to make a few jumpers and jump the connections around the alarm. I did that to an older truck that I had until I found out that it was my battery.

How do the thieves drill a hole in the battery without popping the hood?

Well. Since the last post was nearly 3 years ago......I would guess that It's probably fixed. Lol.
