Hello, Please help! My 1996 Mustang Gt car alarm wont let the car start. any suggestions? Ericf


use the key to lock and then unlock the drivers door then try to start if it still doesnt start then go to pass/side door and lock and unlock it and then try to start the switch on the drivers door may be bad, if this is a factory alarm system, if its aftermarket then you will need to locate the reset button under the dash, this will be a small red push type button, you will have to turn key on and push button in four times quickly, also are you sure its the alarm? it may be a bad battery or starter but start with the directions i gave first and let me know if it doesnt work make sure to relist the problem. good luck.

All but the drivers side widaws do not work? I believe it is the alarm system stopping them. Is there a way to disable the alarm and keep the remote controls?


The alarm will not cause this, what would cause this is the window lock button on the driver door, if this button is pushed no windows will work except the drivers window, look at the control for the windows on the drivers door, there a button near the window buttons it may say lock or not, push it then try to operate the windows, heres a picture to help you i circled the button i speak of,794fdce.jpg

Try putting the key in the door and turn the key to lock the door twice quickly to lock all doors then turn it to unlock the doors twice quickly to unlock all the doors. Then if that doesnt work check all the doors, trunk, and hood for the push button sensors that enable the theft deterent system make sure the buttons move in and out smoothly and are not sticking.

Changed oil and cleaned battery cables.Started car up. Ran for 2 seconds security alarm went off car shut down.no power to fuel pump.Is there some way to reset the fuel pump


You need to reset the alarm system.That can be done with the remote entry key fob or by locking then unlocking the drivers door with the ignition key with all doors closed.This is for a factory alarm system.Also check the inertia switch,should be in the trunk,on the side with a push button top.Push button.If already down its not tripped.

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected

under your dash on the drivers side usually you should find a small button. turn the ignition to the on position then press the button under dash your alarm will stop and you're on the road. P.S. your alarm may reactivate when you disconnect your battery. just go through the motions again.
