Default Car Alarm Problem

This is for a buddy of mine I work with. He bought a beater 02 Dodge Stratus RT. Everything runs fine except some alarm issues. Car will be off for hours and all of a sudden the horn will come on and stay on until you remove a battery terminal. Even after letting it sit for a few minutes its a crap shoot on whether it will still be going off when reconnecting. Not the only issue though. It has another draw because every now and then it will drain the battery over night.

Now the car won't even start. It drained a battery over night. He charged it the next day and tried to turn it over. The car just cranks over and over. I haven't heard it but it sounds like the alarm needs to be reset or something along those terms.

I have never installed an alarm on a car so all of this is new territory to me. The guy doesn't have a lot of money so I am trying to help him so he doesn't resort to paying someone to do it. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks

Have him go under the dash and unplug the alarm and see if it starts, I have a beater impala that had similar issues I unplugged the alarm and threw it as far as I could, mine didn't have a speaker hooked up and I fucked with it for a whole afternoon trying to get it to start before I realized the alarm was going off but I couldn't hear it and it was disabling the fuel pump

I did plan on just pulling out the alarm but I want him to get it started so he can bring it here. Any ideas of how to reset an alarm?

Usually just pull main fuse to brain box and it's all bypassed

Will be trying that here in a few minutes. Seems too easy though. If that was the case someone stealing a car could easily disable it.

Trust me it's that easy, installed them for 8'years but way out of loop now, once main power fuse is pulled, starter kill is disabled and can start car if you had right key

Yeah well after talking to a buddy that owns a alarm installation shop I realize that he has two different problems. I was thinking that maybe some alarms used either spark or fuel to keep it from starting. He said that all alarms use the starter. So in short the car only cranking over is a completely different problem.

I will be removing the main power fuse as soon as I can find it to at least eliminate one of the problems.

That's all alarms, they just cut starter wire. Including viper, and alarm can cause issues if the anti-theft module to bypass the factory anti theft system acts up, how ever the factory system disables it from starting can be due to bypass module
