I'm not sure, but I assume the alarm is connected to one of the fuses in the fuse block. Perhaps you could hook up the battery and unplug one fuse at a time and find the one that the alarm is connected to. It is probably one of the accessory circuits.

Good luck

Why doesn't it start?


Disconnect the battery take out the horn fuse then connect the battery it should work. This resets the alarm. Hope it works. You can then put the horn fuse back but if it goes off when you put it back then there's something wrong with your alarm.

Wont start


did this happen only after the alarm was installed? if so then unplug connectors from the alarm control box. if it starts now then you either have something hooked up wrong (take another close look at instructions) or you may have an faulty alarm controller or you may have effected the vehicles oem alarm if so equipped.

1995 ford escort, alarm keeps going off and car wont start


The alarm brain should not be the easy to locate if stock. Put everything as it was. The alarm brain, control, module or whatever any one wants to call it is most likely behind and under the radio possibly on the floor but in that area. That is if it is OEM if not then it should have been installed under the instrument cluster. I should be a small box probably held with zip-ties and it should have all the information, manufacturer, model and wire functions on the brain. If you think he found the right thing then have him look for the red wire that connects to it. It should have a 15amp fuse on the cable. If its taken out this will disable the alarm. What ever he found should say Security, Alarm or something like that. Not door control or anything other.

Wont start after changing the alternator, battery, and MAF sensor


Sometimes the alarm thinks the pos. battery cable has been cut so it kills the ighition. You will have to look in the manual to see how to reset the alarm. You may need a code. If its not the alarm, you may have blown a fuse or worse, fried the computer when you put the alt. in. start at the begining. Check the battery cable connections, battery voltage, alt. wires and connections. if the headlighys work but the car won't start, it's prob. not a "connection" problem.

Problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser


You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

ALARM SECURITY SYSTEM FUSE BOX FOR FORD ESCORT


Try the batteries in the keyless remote.Then if those are good on the driver side left kick panel. Is the fuse block. on top to the left there is a row of six fuses. two rows of three there should be a cover for it and on the cover there is a indicator on it for the alrm systems. try fuse first. the if thats not it then in the trunk on the right hand side behind the carpet is a box that is held by two #10 screws. take it off and on the box it has two wiring harneses and a antenna looking cable. try the box afterwords though because they are expensive. form ford they are about 400$ . try salvage yards if still no luck i have 3 systems with remotes.

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.
