alpine alarm... dead? fixable?
my alarm hasn't worked for maybe two or three years. its an alpine alarm. once randomly about two months ago, when i dug the key ring out of the drawer and pressed the button, i heard the car unlock and beep out side. i went out and tried it agian but it only worked once maybe twice more before it stopped.
i think the battery is all right in the key ring because the red led lights up.
when i took out the glove box to add some speaker wire i got to take a look at the alarm itself. it has so many wires connected to a little plastic alpine box. i also noticed a switch in the glovebox that had been wired to the alpine box. i'm not sure what the switch does, but it doesn't seem to help the alarm work.
do any of you guys have any idea how i can trouble shoot this and maybe fix it?
