??
Does the Alarm Sound??

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Factory alarm.
This is becoming "just questions" rather than answers. The dialogue from the beginning has exposed the issue.Read the beginning line - FOR NO REASON.........means it is totally random. The car can be parked for hours and then it will go off. The car can be parked for days and never go off. Then in two hours it will go off.

Thanks........& sorry for the questions, but you have the vehicle & this is the Internet
I asked a series of questions for "my benefit" to form a correct answer, as I have been in Automotive Electronics for over 30 years
I will OPT OUT & let someone else assist
Please do not respond to this, as it will Lock the question
IF someone else can help, they will post here
Please answer questions, because we cannot touch or see your vehicle

Thanks again

Hi Im David, as the previous techs have said, we arent there, you are. so if you arent willing to answer our questions so that we may solve your problem then there is nothing we can do for you.

Expert:  david craig replied 8 months ago.

there are grounds for the RAC module. one behind the right kick panel and 2 behind the left kick panel. remove both kick panels and inspect the ground wires for corrosion or moisture or damage. the n you can let me know what you have found.
