86 944T Alarm

I went to check on my 86 944T and the alarm was going off... It has been sitting in storage for a couple of months now with a 2A battery tender on. I tried turning on and off the alarm with the key but it still goes off when you open the door or try to start it.
I pulled the connections at the key switch and connected them together to complete the circuit but to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Yes, the hood will trigger the alarm.

We inherited this car from my late father in law. It was his baby and now it is ours. Notwithstanding the alarm issue, I am trying to learn as much about it as possible. He put a performance chip in it but again, his untimely death left a lot of unanswered questions. Thanks for all the help!!

Nothing to reset. It goes on with the key, and off with it.

Thanks for the info KD.. I will see if the charging of the battery and reconnection does the trick this Sat... It is supposed to be mid 50's here in MN so I may take it for a ride... Wish me luck!

Pull the alarm relay and jump two terminals. It's located in the forward passenger footwell under dash area. Sorry I don't have specifics for your year but if you search here and on clarks garage site you should quickly find a good reference.

Hi Paul, The link below is from Clark's Garage and shows how to bypass the alarm on your car. If you know when the last Cam and Balance Shaft belts were changed you'll be money ahead. The general rule is 30k mile or 3 years whichever comes first.

Alarm System - Bypassing

Cheers,
Larry

Grandad, Thanks for the advice! I will look at the records and see if this was done. The car has 115k miles so I think that might be a good thing.

I'll post a picture of the jumpered connector when I get home for reference. It's really simple to do. I eliminated the alarm (that I never used in the 25 years I've owned it) after it got wet a couple of years ago from the usual leaking battery tray area...

Use regular spad connectors and slip them into the plug.

Left the car on a 8a charge and reconnected today. The garlic worked !!! No alarm going off didn't need to bypass. Took her out for a 50 mi run and wash. It is supposed to snow this week so ......... another ride tomorrow. Thanks for all the input! As soon as I get a photobucket acct. I will post some pics. It is a beautiful car!
