    using the stock automatic locks the alarm goes off

    I was wondering if anybody could give me a little advice or if anyone else has had the same problem. When I go to lock the doors using the keyless lock or when I use the automatic locks on my car it will lock, but then a few minutes later the alarm always goes off. I have to lock both door locks manually for the alarm not to go off. However there is no problem using the remote unlock button. Anybody have any ideas on what this could possibly be.

    Don't know about a "few minutes" but the alarm going off for no apparent reason just after arming is usually a shock sensor issue. I'd try disconnecting it temporarily and see what happens.

    The shock sensor you are talking about I know you can turn them up and down in the hatch but how can I disconnect it? I don't know much about alarms or keyless entries.

    Take the old one apart and see if water got into it. If it did you need to stop it, or seal the new one so it doesn't happen again.

    there was a little bit of rust on the electronic board in it so i figured it got some water at some point. I used a little bit of oil on it to try and clean it up. Figure i cant make it any worse but I figure it could help and try again once i let it air out a little more
