Question about 2004 Mazda 3
Began one day at getting new brakes. as the mechanic drove it in the shop and parked it all of sudden the horn goes off and wont turn off the headlights are flashing its going hay wire all over. the guy said he pulled the relay off and it stopped. he said its the after market car alarm? so from interior lights not working , horn, back lights headlights stay on no blinkers, i honk the horn and the wipers go on and headlights flash brake light stays ontimes the blinkers wont work. once i turned the high beams on and the blinkers worked then they dont one time my gears woulkdnt move so i used a small screw driver to get gears moving then i saw blown fuse i replaced it and the gears moved i took the fuse off gears dont move...so either no back lights or use the screw driver, no fog lights, and one day i just took the battery out for about 3 hours and i start the car and all back to normal....few days later the Lights Out show starts again. so i had to but a new battery a few months ago and a few weeks later is dead. that went on for a few weeks. and now its start with no jump needed. is there a way to just disconnected the Viper alarm or is it more than just pulling the wire. i have read lots of others having similar issues and went to dealer and cost them about 150 they didnt quite say what was the problem
I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

Lift up the parking brake handle one click. Turn the engine on and look at the control panel. You should see the parking brake light. release parking brake and raise rear to make sure the wheels turn freely. forward and backwards. good-day !
