Wood pecker in alarm speaker

1999 f250 4x4 diesel. 165k miles.

Ok. Not a real woodpecker. But it sounds like one. The sound coming out of the alarm speaker sounds like the alarm is dying and it's making a sound like a woodpecker. It's barely audible unless you walk by the front grill. It is continuous. Yes quite odd.

This is when the truck is just just sitting.

Is there a backup battery?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post in.

Adding to thread for still needed help.

Both my batteries are good by multimeter check (they're less than a year old each.)


1. Is there a backup battery for the alarm system?

2. Can the alarm 'brain' be reset and its location?

3. Is there a place to upload video for ya'll to hear this?

Thanks...

Is this a factory alarm system? I didn't know that was offered.

Sounds aftermarket.

Ah. Maybe. I bought it used in 2005. Just figured it was factory. Great. Could be anything then. Ugh.

Thanks for replying.

Hey guys,

Is there a standard place to find the alarm system? I want to see if it has a battery backup and also maybe just turn it off until I can figure out what's wrong with it as I'm unhooking my batteries just incase it drains them.

the GEM and most aftermarket alarms will be wired under dash

Ok. So, I found another website about turning ignition over to run 8 times. I did this and the locks cycled. I'm guessing that means it's factory? I do have a key fob as well.

After doing that I left the key in the ignition, opened the door to go see if alarm was making noises and the alarm went off. I tried turning on ignition but it wouldn't work so I used the fob and it turned it off.

Now there's no noise at the alarm speaker. Bizarre.

I'll be watching to see if sound comes back.
