2011 GT factory alarm goes off while driving

This is the most annoying problem ever. Driving down the street and the alarm goes off. Horn blowing, lights flashing. Basically making me look like an ***. If i stop and turn the key off the car won't restart. I have to play with the alarm, open the door, run around the car 6 times backwards and then it finally seem to run thru whatever crazy cycle its doing. I'm hoping its just a short in the alarm and not something more serious. Any ideas??

simple test. try using the other key...maybe the alarm is falsely being triggered into panic mode. when trying do NOT have the 1st key with you.

also, next time try singing "Camptown Races" while running around it

I'm already using the "second" key. I wonder if the key battery is low? I don't know how long they last.

Dealers can typically test the power of the signal being emitted

the battery is used only to send a signal to unlock/disarm. If it'll help I have a PDF of the alarm install/instructions. If you PM me your email I'll send it to you.
