Alarm keeps sounding off

I updated uconnect a week ago, but just this afternoon my alarm started sounding without reason. It has happened a bunch of times in a few different locations in the past 4 hours, as I've received email notifications each time.

In the short term, how can i disable the alarm so I can lock the doors?

Re: Alarm keeps sounding off

Just had mine into dealer for same reason. Hood relay was causing the jeep to think someone was trying to open the hood. It was a pain listening to that alarm go off all hours of the night. i left it unlocked most places i went......... you can always try manually pushing down the door locks?

Hood latches are the devil... replaced twice on my M5, I think neighbors were ready take a sledgehammer to that car (as was I).

This just started happening to mine today too. I was in & out of stores between 5:00-6:30 and every time I came out the alarm was blaring. Now it has done it twice in my driveway since I got home. Got 10 emails in 2 hours since this began.

I find it hard to believe this is a mechanical issue being that we both upgraded our uconnect SW within the past week and we started seeing the problem on the same day.

Mine started Saturday and did it yesterday, but not at all today. And the first time it occurred on Saturday, I recall a cluster message that my hood was open.

I am getting no messages on my cluster. So I have no idea why this is happening. It has persisted today.
