Phasmophobia – how do I turn off my car alarm?
When searching for a ghost in Phasmophobia, it is very important to remain calm, as the phantom often indicates by sounds which room it is in. This can be turning on the radio, running water from the tap, or playing the piano. Some ghosts become disturbed if their territory is violated and try to scare players away by using lights out or setting off alarms in the car. This is such a nuisance that the sound must first be turned off in order to continue the investigation.
To begin with, you need to find a car key that should be located in the investigation area. It is slightly larger than a standard house key and only comes in black. It can often be found on tables, countertops and consoles. Its location is random, but I usually find it right on the first table after entering the house on the Tanlgewood Street House map. When you find the key, simply point the cursor in its direction and press the E key on your keyboard.
To make sure that the key is in our inventory, just open the journal with the J key and go to the Overview tab. In the keys section, you should find two keys: one for your house and one for your car. The keys will be visible to all players during the session, regardless of who collected the item.
The final step to disable the car alarm in Phasmophobia is to approach the car and then click the left mouse button. The alarm should go off immediately. It is not necessary to hold the key in your hands, but it is important that the player’s hand is empty. There is a chance that the ghost will turn on the car if you are near it. In this case, just walk up to the car again and click on it with the left mouse button.
