hi all... have a super SRT6 with a problem. the alarm sounds when the car is parked and doors locked. I have to turn the "tow-away" alarm system off and leave the doors unlocked in order to keep it from sounding. Good thing I have a gararge to park it in at night!! Had it to a couple dealers...no idea; said the computer system on a Crossfire doesn't register electrical problem.

    Once the anti-theft alarm system is set, the anti-theft alarm can be triggered if: The Doors, Hood, or Liftgate/Decklid is opened, The Radio is removed (disconnected electrically), The Ignition is jumped, The Glove Box is opened, The Anti-theft Tow Sensor is tripped, The Alarm Siren is tripped. All of these switches and/inputs must be checked :
    *ALARM TRIPS ON ITS OWN
    POSSIBLE CAUSES
    FALSE GLOVE BOX SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE LIFTGATE LOCK SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE HOOD AJAR SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE LEFT DOOR AJAR SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE RIGHT DOOR AJAR SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE IGNITION SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE BRAKE LAMP SWITCH SIGNAL
    FALSE ANTI-THEFT TOW SENSOR SIGNAL
    INTERMITTENT CONDITION
    Diagnostic codes can be retrieved if any are stored. Your dealership has the proper Diagnostic tester to read the Central Locking Pump/Security System Module last cause state.This will help isolate the cause of your concern.

    Thanks me too...am having the same problem. I was even driving down the road in the pouring rain and the alarm went off. I think mine may have something to do with the anti-theft tow sensor signal. It will not toggle. Does this mean that it is stuck on?
