    pretty sure its the oem alarm, was in it when i bought it and from what i know its the standard alarm that came with the 94 gt's. sometimes i would have to aim it a certain way to unlock or lock the doors or had to be very close to the car for the remote to work. but, i did notice a few times over the past few days when i would open my car, and sit in it....and u know, get ready to start the car lol my doors would lock then open again by themselves...didnt really think much of it, jus thought my car was possessed lol but, thats the only things ive noticed. my dome light, hood light and trunk lights ive never had any issues with...they jus shut off when the remote ****.

    Lay down on the driver's side floorboard and look up near the kick panel. You'll see the fusebox cover looking at you.

    I suppose you could try disconnecting the harness to the alarm to see if things start acting normally.

    I seem to recall someone having had water damage with an alarm module and having some similar issues in the past. This was years ago - anyone following along remember anything about that?

    Pics would help but you'll probably end up doing a patch repair. You could do some temporary patching in the meanwhile.

    On the module, are there any legible OEM part numbers or anything on it? Best to go from that because it's exactly what's in your car.

    aight well i ripped my trunk apart to find out after they told me the module was damaged that they removed it and im guessing threw it away. they tied up the harnass that was attached to it though, who the hell knows if thats damaged too lol. the guy had told me to check junk yards for the same year as my car, so maybe he knew it was a stock oem module? i dunno. and i took a couple pictures but gotta figure out how the **** to get them on here haha
