Screaching could be the belt, the belt too tight. It could be a pulley or a tension pulley. Belt dressing for the belt might help and try lithium grease for all the pulleys . Your alarm is possibly tied into your radio system and of course the ignition. Depending upon the system, type in what kind of system it is or the serial # of it on the Internet and it should tell you how to reset or correct it through your radio system . Also, sometimes you can take the battery cables off for 10 minutes and then put them back on and it may reset it . If not get the name and manufacturer and serial number or model number of the system and look up there 1-800 number and they will assist you.

SOURCE: Alarm haywire, can't override anti-theft system or turn on car

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

SOURCE: master door switch? or something else? buzzes when i press lock

ok ur door lock switch isnt going out,,however ur drivers front door lock actuator is going or is already bad...have that replaced..also as far as the end noise buzz u hear , that may be ur a.b.s modulator and accumulator cycleing on and may be empty and or leaking..have the a.b.s modulator and accumulator checked at the dealer..its an expensive fix... ur modulator unit in in the front left or right of the vehicle depending if u have a v6 or 4 cyl. its a square unit with a rectangular brake fluid resevroir and a long tubular cylinder (acummulator)... also identify it by the orange connectors...and the brakelines going to it...common symptom with those accords....they leak alot especially if with high mileage..

SOURCE: VW Jetta alarm malfunction

Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor

SOURCE: I have a 95 VW Jetta III that I just purchased.

Insert the key into the door lock on the driver side and move it to the unlock position two times quickly. That should turn off the alarm.

On my 96 deville i have a coolent leak coming from passenger side of engine towards the fire wall by front tire

Hello: Check the coolant overflow tank, the hoses and the metal pipes the hoses attach to. If there is bubbling in the tank after driving the you may be low on coolant or have a blown head gasket problem.

Coolant leaking somewhere unknown, have to add to reservoir every 3 days or so, strong antifreeze smell with a/c on. water sloshing sound in passenger side dashboard. bad heater core?

sound like a bad heater core! the heater core is like a small radiator that is usually locaded in the dashboard on the passenger side. now if the leaking is really bad you are going to see water dripping by the front passenger tire or if it gets really bad it may leak inside the car. in order to fix this problem the HEATER CORE must be replaced. good luck

96 thunder bird overheating

Sounds like the heater core (a small radiator of sorts under the dash) is leaking or a hose going to it is leaking. If in a warm climate, you could bypass or block the heater hoses temporarily. Their only purpose is to make heat avail to interior of car. The 2 heater hoses either connect to feedthru's at the firewall or simply pass thru the firewall to the heater core. Every car I've seen has it on passenger side.

Peer up under the dash, it should be clear where it's coming from.
