Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you're hearing an alarm going off but the truck runs normally then it is pretty certainly an aftermarket alarm. If so then it could just be a matter of disarming it, or the alarm module may be failing and needs to be replaced.

Can you describe exactly what you're hearing?

It sounds like a combination of cop car, ambulance, and fire truck. Not all at once but rotating. I got it to stop. I discounted the negative on the battery.

That's definitely an aftermarket alarm then, the factory alarm honks the horn and flashes the lights but couldn't be active with the engine running. You have an aftermarket alarm module on the truck somewhere. If you don't have the fob and don't need the alarm then it would be best to remove it and it's wiring.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
