1980 corvette alarm

My corvette alarm started going off yesterday all by itself. It is a factory installed unit and came on the car originally. I have tried several ways to get it to rearm but it just keeps sounding off. I can only silence it by disconnecting the battery. Any ideas ?

Doc here,

For now..pull the fuses, and disconnect the siren..that'll keep it quiet.

On mine, the module was in the left rear quarter panel hidden vault well..Check there for a removable door..(they have a few spots I can't remember where they all are..) If it's there , check the plug and harness for bad, burned, bent or corroded pins..and / or a damaged module (road fodder..) If good..

ON mine, all the wires junction at the left side center console panel and went under the cluster / dash from there..a good spot to check..and troubleshoot from..your going to need a factory alarm manual for your system also. If you get one...please post it..I need one!

BTW..mine was abandoned long ago..about 2 or 3 aftermarket systems ago..But all the "EXTRA " wire was left..so this time I stripped it all out in favor of the new system, what so far has worked flawlessly for over 4 years...
