Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Changed the battery. The alarm went off, tried to reset but will not work. When driving push on the brakes and the car shut down. Is this an alarm issue or an electrical engine issue. Don't know what to do. Tried the reset button but not sure if I reset the alarm right. Any suggestions?

Yes this is an Alarm issue that's why your vehicle is shutting down as soon as you press on the brake pedal. Is this an aftermarket alarm or stock alarm? Sounds like aftermarket alarm to me and if it is, the way fix this issue is as soon as you put the red n black terminal on the battery and the alarm goes off press your alarm key right away to turn it off. If this doesn't work put your key on the ignition after you have installed the battery and just put it on the "ON" position engine OFF then click on your alarm remote once again.

1999 corolla alarm when jump starting immbolizes engine


I would change the battery and make sure it has a good charge. Or take that battery to auto parts store and have them test the battery to make sure it is good. If it is, have them do a fast charge. If that don't work I say you might have a grounding issue

How to disable alarm system. The alarm went off


okay, this alarm reset is done by turning the key on and pushing the reset button a few times, you will need to try this a few times to get the correct number of pushes,for example turn key on and quickly push 3 times and if that doesnt work retrey it and push it 4 times, take note that every time you try you need to turn key off and then on again before you push reset button,i know it can be set to 1- 2 -3 or 4 pushes to reset, this is programed at the time of install, most installer dont set it or tell you so you will need to try all four. good day.

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.

1989 300e. The anti theft alarm went off while driving the car now the engine won't start. We shut the car off and locked and unlucked the doors several times. The alarm reset and we began driving again. A...


This is the problem due to your anti theft alarm system. You have not mentioned which brand of anti-theft alarm system you have? Anyhow, most of the systems have a reset switch inside the kit, open the kit and on the main board, u will find the reset button, press that and hold for 5 sec, the system will be reset. Otherwise, there are 2 or 3 fuses with the wiring of kit, remove those fuses and ur engine will wake up but the anti-theft system wont work then, hope this will solve the problem

Alarm wont shut off after replacing battery


How long did it take you to replace the battery? If you did a quick switch, try disconnecting it again and leave for 10-15 minutes. Maybe it will reset? Did you replace the battery before it went completely bad? Is this a stock alarm?
