How to bypass a cars alarm!

First things first... locate the alarms main module. you may have to remove the kick panel under the steering wheel to find it. next remove the cover to the ignition switch, find out which wire(s) are coming from the ignition switch and going into the alarm system, they will be spliced into the box using usually a quick connector or wire nut. take note of the wires colors coming directly from the ignition switch, remove the wire(s) from the alarm box and set aside... Next locate the wires going FROM the alarm box to wires that correspond to the colors of the ones you disconnected, and connect them together back how it was originally. here is a picture i drew on paint to help understand:

I have a 2001 rodeo I lost the key and had to punch out the ignition, to startup. Do I have to remove the steering wheel to get the lock cylinder off or not or is there another way without removing it

Should be able to without taking the entire steering wheel off. Next time call a locksmith and have them cut a new key on site. Save you a big trouble later

I boiught a 1999 toyoyta camry v-6 with an aftermarket alarm system. what is the best way to bypass it?

Pull the driver's kick panel, the panel under the steering wheel and steering column cover. Remove the aftermarket alarm. Most are T-tapped into factory wiring and can be unplugged. If they did a poor job installing it you may have to cut it out and solder factory wiring back together. If the alarm is the cause of the no start, it's usually a bad connection near the ignition switch.

where is the body control module located on a 06 buck lacrosse

The BCM is located under the dash behind the instrument panel on the left (drivers) side of the vehicle. In the first picture below I have marked its location but keep in mind that this picture is a view from the front of the vehicle. You will need to remove the lower cover under the dash as well as the panel right under the steering wheel (see next picture). The final picture is how it looks after you remove the covers. Hope this helps...

how do i change the ignition cylinder if I have no key

Align the steering wheel so the tires are straight and then remove the ignition key from the Saturn.

  • 2 Remove the lower right side console trim panel to reveal the fuse box panel. The trim panel simply pulls off with a sharp tug. Locate the supplemental inflatable restraint (SIR, or air bag) fuse and then remove it with the fuse puller. Refer to the repair manual for the fuse schematics, if necessary.
  • 3 Open the hood and then disconnect the negative battery terminal from the battery, using a ratchet and socket. Isolate the cable so the terminal does not come into contact with the battery post during the repair.
  • 4 Loosen the four SIR retaining fasteners located behind the air bag module at the rear of the steering wheel using a ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Remove the inflator module away from the steering wheel carefully. Disconnect the connector position assurance (CPA) device from the module. Disconnect the yellow SIR connector at the base of the steering column. Unplug the wire harness from the module and then place the module in a safe place away from your work space with the trim panel facing up.
  • 6 Pry off the upper instrument panel retaining caps with a slotted screwdriver and then remove the trim panel retaining screws. Lift the trim panel upward to disengage the rear retaining clips. Disengage the front trim panel clips by lifting upward at each front corner. Remove the trim panel from the vehicle.
  • 7 Disconnect the CPA device from the passenger-side air bag module and then disconnect the yellow SIR wire from the wire harness pigtail located under the passenger-side dashboard.
  • 8 Disconnect the wire harnesses for the horn and cruise control (if equipped) from the base of the steering wheel. Remove the retaining clip at the center of the steering wheel (if equipped) and then remove the mounting nut beneath it. Pay attention to the alignment of the steering wheel locating notch for reassembly.
  • 9 Apply the steering wheel puller to the steering wheel and tighten the center nut of the puller to draw the steering wheel off the column slowly. Tape the SIR coil into position to prevent accidental coil damage from occurring.
  • 10 Remove the two retaining screws and then the upper steering column cover. Pry off the ignition lock bezel and then remove the two lower retaining screws and the lower steering column cover.
  • 11 Remove the SIR coil from the combination module. Disconnect the CPA device and the wires from the combination switch. Remove the combination switch retaining bolts and then remove the switch from the steering column assembly. If necessary, remove the instrument panel trim covers and center console trim to access the switch fasteners for removal.
  • 12 Disconnect the ignition switch connector and then remove the two ignition switch retaining screws. Disconnect the switch from the ignition module and then remove it from the steering column.
  • 13 Reverse the procedure to reinstall the new replacement ignition switch.

    i need to locaTE THE FUSE BOX ON MY 1992 GEO METRO.

    Main fuse box is located in left kick panel next to park brake pedal. Should be about where left knee is (maybe a little to left of left knee) when sitting in drivers seat (under dash).

    There is another one with all the big fuses under hood on driver's side next to fender .
    ----------- For more details, There's a white box behind remove the 3 screws on the panel under the steering wheel, the wide gray one and pull it out of your way, pulls straight back to you. If you still need more access to the fuse box straight up is a #10 hex bolt, remove it, the other side on the kick panel is a thumb nut you can take off and the box should pull down for better access. dsc01827.png As it will look loose, there will be a cover over the fuses and of course I have some plugs unplugged after I removed the steering column; dsc01828.png Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
