Default Anyone with a clifford alarm, issues with stock alarm?

I get an extra beep on arming the car that is coming from the stock siren. It only happens when I disarm the car to get something then rearm it before the cabin lights go off. If I wait for the cabin lights to go off, its fine. If I arm after driving the car or turning to acc, its fine.

I also noticed that when this issue happens if I disarm then go into the car and turn to acc I get the chirp from the clifford alarm as if a zone has been triggered, even though nothing was, just the stupid extra chirp on arm.

Any ideas? Is the clifford wired wrong? Or is it having an issue with the factory alarm?

It thinks a door is open.

The dome light is a simple ground switch. When a door is open, the switch closes and the circuit is grounded-light goes on. Door closed, circuit broken, ground broken-light goes off.

Your alarm's dome light/courtesy light fools the system by grounding the circuit to turn the light on. You can confirm this by disarming your alarm- your door ajar light on the dash should pop on. Flipping the key to ACC will tell your alarm to flip the courtesy light off.

Why do you run 2 alarms?

you need to have the door trigger error chirp shut off.
Its in the programing features you could do it or just take it back to whoever installed it and have them do it.

Installer said It did not have to be removed, maybe he was just lazy? Can you remove the stock alarm? Would this also fix the issue?

I dont pretend to be a pro here or anything- hopefully someone more knowledgable chimes in... but i believe the factory alarm should be able to be unplugged with no problems. My car has no factory alarm, but it has the harness for it.

Factory alarm is behind the glove box. Do you use both remotes?

You shouldnt have to unplug anything, that clifford alarm ingerates in with the car. Your car doesnt a true alarm, all it is is keyless and possibly a factory shock sensor. Its my understanding that the factory keyless should only arm and disarm with the factory remote. I would just take it back to the installer.

No I do not use both remotes, I did disable the factory alarm tho. Had to put the key in the ignition hit the disarm on factory remote and hold the unlock button or something to that effect. Before I did that it would false every once in awhile.

Anyway I get the error that wrxeter described with the door ajar light on even though they are closed. It only shows up after I get that third chirp from the factory alarm.

So is it just wired wrong? Can anyone help so I can fix this?

Just checked the install guide nothing in there about it, I can only find did in the maxtrix lines. I have an intelliguard750.

I do see a feature called "delay domelight"
on: smart auto testing will ignore the domelight until it goes off
off: smart auto testing will generate a warning to indicate the door is open.

Not sure it has something to do with that.

EDIT: Okay just tried switching it off and it did not fix the problem, so guess it has nothing to do with that.

that should be what you want to program if it still chirps then theres another zone open (possibly hood, or trunk) they might have hooked the trunk trigger up to the door trigger which domelight delay wouldnt bypass. if you shut it off and its still doing it, then either A) your not shutting it off B) they have it the trunk wire hooked to door pin)
its the siren chirping a extra time correct? if it had anything to do with the stock alarm it would chirp the horn. but its a common problem on cars with delayed domelights. and thats why they give you the feature to bypass it. just wont bypass if they hook up the trunk pin to the doors.
maybe just take it back and have them fix it???
