Haunted Car Alarm

The anti-theft alarm on my 2004 Crossfire has recently decided to spontaneously go off. This has happened when the car is in the garage, parked outside, and while I am driving. Has anyone else had this problem? What can I do about it?

(I took it to the dealer and, of course, the alarm did not go off while it was there - about 36 hours. The dealer had never run into this problem and, since it did not occur while there, it could not be diagnosed.)

It is an OEM alarm or an after market.

It is not an unique problem. I believe your best bet is to find a local automobile electrical shop, or a different dealer. I would have to guess a dealer who has never run into the problem has not been a dealer very long.

It is an OEM alarm. Thanks for the reply.
