SOURCE: How to take automate car alarm off silent mode

{: ) When armed, the content theft deterrent (CTD) system is designed to deter vehicle content theft by pulsing the horns and exterior lamps for approximately 30 seconds when an unauthorized vehicle entry is detected.

An unauthorized entry can be any of the following with the CTD system armed:
• When any door is opened without first being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter • After a battery reconnect, if the battery was disconnected with the CTD system armed
Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the power door lock switch or the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the content theft deterrent (CTD) arm mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the arm mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
• To disarm the CTD system in standby mode, perform one of the following: - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position. • To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode (non-event) or when activated (during an alarm event): - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and switch to the ON position Locking the Vehicle Without Arming the CTD System Locking the vehicle may be accomplished without arming the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. Use of the manual door locks or using the key to lock the doors will lock the vehicle, but will not arm the CTD system.

My car alarm doesn't beep any more when I lock it. any help?

Fuse for car alarm burn out. Can you do a test break in. Don't break a window or anything, just leave a window down, set alarm and then open door by reaching in and unlocking the door. Does your horn work still? You may also have change the setting somehow to the silent mode or what is also called valet mode. If alarm still works and horn works, I am sure your setting is changed somehow to the valet mode.

Does not cherp

Is your perhaps alarm in "valet mode"? I've got a Checkmate on my Honda, and I can turn valet mode on/off by putting the key to Accessory, then pushing the black button under the left of the steering wheel. The alarm chirps when you switch the mode.

When I turn on the air conditioner, it blows really hot air. also, when i set the alarm, the horn does not sound.

As far as the A/C goes. Does the A/C compressor turn on?? if so, than you may have a MODE door problem in the air box. Do all heater knobs turn freely or is one of the binding up?? I have seen the MODE door gears falling off and sticking the MODE door on hot setting. Test knobs for movement. If A/C compressor is not coming on, than you may have a leak and all freon leaked out or it could be just a simple thing like fuse or relay. Test to see if A/C compressor comes on. As far as the alarm goes, you need to switch your security from silent to non silent mode. Here is how its done. Hold BOTH lock and unlock buttoms together for about 5 seconds. (the directionals or sidelamps will flash)That will switch the alarmmode to NON SILENT and back to SILENT if you need to.
