Chirper/Buzzer Constantly On

Hi all,
This is my first post in the forum but I've done a lot of reading on here over the last 6 months since I got my Fozzy. My question today is about the chirper/buzzer for the remote lock. I currently have a 20" LED bar that I want to make flash when I lock or unlock my car. Since I don't want it to turn on every time I use my blinker, I decided to not tap into my turn signal lights, but rather tap into the chirper. If it is helpful, I can upload a picture of my schematic, but basically, I have a single wire (with a diode in-line) connecting the positive wire of the chirper to the signal wire on my relay. This should all work fine and it does, except when I have it connected, it is constantly on. For awhile I couldn't figure out what was causing this, but now I see the wires for the chirper are reading a constant 12v. This happens when the chirper is plugged in or when the LED bar is, so now not only does it not work, but I can't plug my chirper back in without it constantly ringing. What the heck?? Did I fry something inside my alarm system? Did I trio something in the security system that it is on a constant alarm now?? I've tried resetting my ECU my disconnecting the battery, turning on the car, and reconnecting the battery, but it doesn't change anything. Anyone know more about the signal for the chirper? Currently hitting my head against a wall here.

Thanks for the help in advance!

I see this is your first forum post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon!

My guess, the device you're powering... "relay signal wire" blew something in the keyless entry control module.
Note "keyless buzzer" on the wiring diagram below = chirper.

If this is something you want to do, perhaps installing a solid state relay, which would require less power to operate, would prevent damaging the keyless entry control module. The SSR - solid state relay could be tied to your "relay signal wire".
