Strange alarm issue

Post by cornishtaz » Sat Jun 18, 2016 10:30 am

Went to go out in the car thus morning. Unlocked the car and the alarm went off for approx 30 secs then stopped then went off again 30secs later this process went on for 8 cycles before it stopped.

I tried locking the car and unlocking again still the same even started the car still the same. Disconnected the main battery still the same.

Went out in the car and everything was back to normal, Onstar never reported theft attempt and there was nothing on the dash.

Just a very strange issue

I had a similar issue on mine, around the end of Feb beginning of March. The alarm did that in the evening, when i got in the car the following morning the heated seats (front and rear) weren't working. Took it to the dealer, they did a firmware update and fixed the problem, haven't had a repeat since.

Maybe worth checking your heated seats to make sure they are still working, wouldn't think you'd want to leave it until the winter to find they're not working....

Sounds like a faulty bcm may need updating/ reseting
