You can try this solution...

turn on and off your ignition switch with out starting it..and leave it on on the fifth time then press your lock button of your alarm.

if it makes a sound, it would work but if not, then that is not the reset procedure.
it works in some alarm models...

another thought would be sometimes power wires from the battery could have overlooked and left not connected to the battery specially after a battery change.

it happened to me a lot. after changing a battery, i would overlooked one wire and something would no longer work.

try both solutions and hopefully one would work.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Alarm won't stop sounding


Hook the battery back up. It may of shut off. If not the battery in your fob may be dead. Wait for your husband to come home and use his.
