I live in Ohio and I've been driving through 4-6 inches of snow for the last 3 hours. I park in my buddys driveway, lock my car and go inside. The alarm is going off and every time I turn it off and relock the car it comes back on. I've opened and closed every door and the hood, shut off the motion sensor you name it. If I lock the car it doesn't start going off for about a minute or two, now it's sitting unlocked because I can't get it to shut the fuck up. Please help lol this is fuckin' annoying for a drunk guy to deal with.

Just tell it to...

shut the fuck up.

Jk, maby check the fuses? Also, make sure there is no snow or ice blocking the door jams. I had a door on a minivan not lock because ice had got in the door jam yet the door still closed.

It was fine until I plowed about two feet of snow in the center of the road for at least 100 feet to prove how badass my car is in the snow lol Snow came up over the windshield and everything haha

Make sure the hood isn't popped. I have popped my hood and forgotten about it. That made the alarm going off like you describe.

well then i guess that makes it slightly more possible that ice/snow has gotten where it shouldent be. Im not sure where you should be looking next...

I popped the hood and slammed it, still went off. Maybe I'll hit the car wash and spray the fuck out of the front end. I'll have to spray off my wheels anyways, they are packed.

I used to have a similar problem and also with my key not working as in locking the car so I decided to lock with the key as in putting it in the key hole and it seem to like reset everything and my key started workin again and the alarm.... was just an idea...

Any way for you to scan the car, there is a way to figure out which sensor it causing it.

I had a very similar intermittent problem with my alarm a few years ago in the winter and it was caused by the sensor in the hood.

Check to see if your vacuum pump area in the trunk is wet.

i had the same issue with my car the first snow of the season when it was covered. the only thing that solved it was when it warmed up and everything melted off. it's more than likely a build up of snow or ice somewhere. the only way i can think to remedy this would be to take it to a DIY car wash and spray it down on a day that is above freezing, or wait for a warmer day. you can go behind the bumper and pull the harness for the alarm horn to keep it from sounding in the mean-time.
