Default One werid problem!

Well, I think I have a VERY weird problem here. First I started my truck using the remote start from my house. A few minutes later I hop in, noticing that my dome lights didn't come on. And then I hear a light sounding (I think) door chime. I turn the headlights on, shut the truck off and still made the noise but no boor clime saying the lights are on. It also stayed on the whole way to school. When I got the school I pulled the pos battery terminal. It was still making a weird noise when I grabbed some papers. Any clues?? I'm sacred that something electrical is going to catch fire (I didn't smell anything tho)

I would assume your remote start shat itself. Maybe a relay, or a wire is arking? I'm probably more confused than you are.
- Jeez, didn't realize how old this thread was. Hope you figured something out.

Never pull pos terminal before neg. Anyway, how do your terminals look?

Check your electrical connections in relation to systems or circuits that didn't power on when expected.


Also look for broken wires leading from (+) or (-) for those systems.
