my alarm system is self engaging when I start my car,when I turn off my car, when I'm sitting at a signal, and at times won't let me start my car because it engaged as I put he key in. And at times when car is warming up, it will sound a series of beeps. I have a new battery, new ignition, and alternator is fine.
When I go to shut my do, as it makes it past the tension spots to hold the door, all the doors will lock.
How much is it going to cost to have an electronic guy work on this? or what can I do?

My check engine light has been on for 5 years (minor evap leak)NO problems with truck during that time. Moved from NY to NC. Had truck tuned up and oil changed before the move. Got here oil was over full. No other problems. Changed oil once again. 2 months after move truck idles rough. Tried injector cleaner.Nope.. no fix.. BUT now check engine light is OFF. Called mechanic cause I broke a brake line. He fixed line and looked at rough idle problem. Plugs were a mess. Some carbon, some covered in oil, some brown in color. Oil over full again (NO gas smell to oil however) Changes spider injecter, changes plugs. Calls it done. NOPE.. still idles rough and gas mileage hits rock bottom, and trucks STINKS of fuel. Called mechanic again.Broken gas line. Mechanic fixes line and says all good once again. NOPE.. Still ideling rough, gas mileage still HORRIBLE, AND now for the first time ever,truck cranks and cranks before starting BUT only intermittently. No specific time when it will happen. Sometimes when cold, and other times when it has run for a short time. Check engine light still out at this point.Truck was hard starting again, and I stepped on accelerator to get it going. Check engine light is back ON but truck starts. Get truck home, shut it off and try starting it immediately..Starts fine, no cranking at all. Called the mechanic again. Checks with computer and error code says minor evap leak. Finds loose connection to map sensor. Blames the problem on the difference between fuel between NY and NC. Resets check engine light and calls it good once again. NOPE.. Truck still idles rough and will crank before starting once again. Neighbor says ask here about map sensor, erg valve, fuel pump relay, o2 sensor,throttle body sensor and ask for suggestions before calling mechanic again.
sometimes it is weeks before the light comes on. is this correctable or just one of those unsolveable warning light problems.
My car is an automatic and it drives ok for the most part but it does tend to be jerky between gears 1,2,and 3 there is no strange noises or anything but the D4 light is blinking should I be worried ???
I cant find the location of the fuelpump relay switch.
these light have been on since i got the car
I have put in a new fuel pump, a new fuel filter, the main relay checks out good, I have fuel to the injectors, but it will only start when I spray starting fluid in it. any ideas?
Everything I find shows it should be at the most 35-40. Mine is reaqding at 70!
engine runs fine, car has been driving fine, no leaks and trans fluid is reddish in color. drove over a set of train tracks and now car will not move.
The accesory drive pulley broke off the housing.
I have already purchased a new battery and wires, pulled a spark plug out and to see if it sparked and not even a little. It comes on but it doesn't come on.
