Panic Alarm

So my panic alarm likes to go off randomly and it is really starting to annoy me. It has woke me up in the middle of the night and just went off again. How Can I disable it?????
Thanks guys!

Ah there was just a thread like this, let me try to find it.

Try changing the remote batteries, a couple guys have had the same thing happen and that was the problem.

Hum that doesn't make sense. There might a ground issue in the panic alarm control relay or something. On other notes, freakin great weather we had today wasn't it?

AHHHHHHH!!!!! MY horn/panic alarm is one unit, so i cant take the panic alarm off. Do you think my horn relay is shot? Is it worth it to try and get a new one and see if this solves the problem??????????

whats a horn relay cost? might be the deciding factor right there. Your asking if its worth doing but thats only a question that you can answer IMO.

worse come to worse ya might cut it out an re-wire in a horn.

They won't cost much at all, I'd be suprised if it was over 10 dollars.
