Default 97 bonne se ALARM GOING CRAZY!!!!! PLZ HELP

Remote entry does not always work, tried new remote and batteries, still nothing. Cannot lock doors, if I do and try to unlock with just key alarm goes off. Can still start car and alarm goes off for about 10 minutes and stops finally, but when anybody opens door alarm automatically starts going off again. Cannot lock doors and don't want anybody to steal car, stereo, or items. PLZ HELP!!!

What brand of alarm?? Since you say it'* an SE, I'm 99% sure it'* aftermarket, and you'll probably want to start at their site for troubleshooting it

I've taken the bonneville to the dealership and they said it was something in the circuitry, but I still believe it could be the alarm module, or possibly that RAC or whatever it was that is supposed to be inside the driverside floorboard. Is there anyway to check modules or convenience center with ohmeter to see if they are operating correctly. Please Help.

I can check my manuals tonight when I get home. I'll see what I can come up with for you.

None of the modules are under the driverside floor. There is a ground buss right there at your door. All the modules are up under the dash on the passenger side.

Is it possible to swap out the modules from a 97 Grand Prix and get the door locks and alarm to work. If so does anybody have the numbers to cross reference the parts? Also where can I find out what recalls there are and see if mine have been replaced?

UPDATE.... After many hours of searching and tracing wiring, checking for shorts, examining door ajar switchs, trunk ajar switchs, found out that the Remote Function Actuator Module was to blame. For anyone else doing searches I hope I can help you with this, the module is located on the passenger side behind the kick panel near the passenger side fuse panel on a white bracket. The module will have only one wiring harness atachment and will have the FCC number on the back of it to let you know what key fobs you may use. Do not confuse it for the Convenience Center Module (the C.C.M. is larger and has holes in it like a speaker was behind it). The key fob FCC # for my 97 is KOBUT1BT and on the module it says KOBUT1BR. Not for sure what the difference is for other years but check module for similarity in FCC # and your key fob FCC # for your year. HAPPY HUNTING!!!!
