My 98 Buick Park Ave has a draw in it and NOBODY HAS FOUND THIS ISSUE !!! I had
a remote car starter about 2 yrs ago and all hell has broken loose.I have since
had this remote car starter removed. My interior lights go on at any given time,
DRIVING OR NOT DRIVING, the factory alarm goes off when It wants to and the
door locks lock when they want to. I`ve recently had to jumpstart the car twice
in 2 days .I`ve had a couple of auto electric guys look at it and radio
retailers too. INCLUDING THE INSTALLER OF THE REMOTE CAR STARTER...Im at ends
wit ..... HELP !!!!!
Basically you have to find to somebody who knows what they're doing,
and not too lazy to actually do it.
It means laying upside down under the dash for a while, and really
looking hard at the wiring. That means taking apart wires connected
with tape and wirenuts, and redoing all connections.
I've had a version of that in a couple cars I bought.
Locks locking/unlocking randomly.
My son fixed both by doing what I said. Think both were bad
aftermarket alarm wiring, but maybe one was bad aftermarket radio
But he's done of lot of this type of work on cars. Always replacing
radios, and adding remote starters to cars.
He still had to go after one car twice before he got it right.
It's always been poor aftermarket work on the wires screwing things
Not saying that's your problem, but it's a solid guess from what

Be sure and get the set that includes the electrical schematics.
