I am presently driving a 96 Plymouth Neon. I have a Python alarm system. This morning (Note not the first time it happens) while going to work my batterie light goes on so I'm looking for a hill to park my car just in case it is the batterie. When I turn my car off the alarm starts YELLING and I couldn't shut it off. But if I pressedn on the brakes the alarm stopped yelling. Finally after 5 min of trying to turn the alarm off and pondering if I should yank the horn out of the hood I finally it finally shut off.
Now th question is :
Do you think it is a fault in the wiring in the alarm system?
Do you think it's a ground fault?
What do think?
I really appreciate your help.
Thnak in adavance
there's been some 95/96 neons lately being posted with starting problems/electrical check the battery cable's/casing for corrosion(green/white)at the battery terminal's mainly the positive there's 2 connection here one to the starter the other powers the main power center(fusebox) under the hood if you alarm system use's a hood pin switch check this also the tip of the pin maybe broken off and grounding the switch
Thanks for the advice I will try to clean my batterie terminals there is
not much corrosion but it's worth a try.
The weird part is that when I was pressing on the breaks the alarm was turning off. Also when that happened in other occasions without the alrm going off the DOME light was turning off when I was pressing the breaks pedal.
I hope it's the batterie terminls! I just don't want my main computer frying on me really can't afford changing that.
No one else has an idea I want to explore my options. My ca has been fine
for the past 4 days. I just don't understand.
Thanks for your advice and opinion
Look inside the hot side of the battery wire see if their is corrosion in their past the terminal cover.. I had weird things going on with my car also so I tore back the cover to the wire a bit and noticed loads of corrosion. Cleaned it up and everything worked fine.
