Hello experts,

I have an '07 XT with about 50K miles on it. This morning, for no apparent reason, the car alarm went off. I quickly cleared it with my key fob. A little while later, I ran an errand and, while parked at Kinko's, it went off again. So, I'm scratching my head. Is this an indication of some other problem? I'm thinking something electrical, maybe the battery going bad? I avoid the dealer like the plague so I am hoping this is something I can take care of myself...

Thanks,
Kevin McElhiney

I had this problem on my 07 as well, turns out the button was getting pressed in my pocket when I would sit down.
That's it for me......nearly once a month. The poor neighbors when I'm, out late until 2:00 AM !

Only other time......with the motion alarm added by Subaru.......if I'm parked in an area where a giant, loud construction vehicle or city bus goes by too close.....it kinda "chirps". Oh, and full ararm once when lightning struck close by !
