FOB Unlocking and Alarming

Everytime I unlock my 2007 Chev Cobalt LT with my key FOB my alarm goes off three times and my car has also started alarming on it's own. I have had awful dealership experience so I am hesitant to go there plus my warranty is over and I feel like it's likely just a feature telling me I need to do something. But what is it?

It might just be the key fob itself . The connections inside the fob are probably going haywire...mine does the same thing. There is a thread on this site on how to repair a broken key fob and all you really need to use is some small pieces of aluminum foil. Hope that helps

We're sorry to hear that you have not had a good experience with your dealership(s) in the past; if there is anything you would like for us to record or look into for you, please let me know and I will forward you my email information. Or, if you had wanted for me to check into any further information for you (warranty/recall information), I'm available to do this as well.
