Customer Question
The battery in my...

The battery in my 2005 Lexus RX330 had to be replaced. Since then, the car alarm goes off at random times. How do I stop it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?

I'll try that. Using the remote key does not stop it. Is there a way to permanently disable the alarm?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Lexus?

330 RX

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 330 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I press the alarm button on the remote start and it will stop the alarm for a few minutes, then it goes off again. People on the road get really angry with me because they think I am blowing my horn at them!

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just that I was told the problem was related to disconnecting and replacing the battery. I can take it somewhere to be repaired, but do not want to be cheated on repair costs. I would like to know what to tell them to do.
