Please help me how to remove the security on my car.


If the security system is activated, usually locking/unlocking the doors with the key fob will reset it. You can also try locking/unlocking the drivers door using the key. Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a minute will also reset the system

How do you reset a '03 Ford F250 security system?


disconnect the positive cable on the battery for 10 minutes. this will reset the trucks computer and the security system.when you reconnect the battery, you'll need to lock the doors and unlock them.with the key , usually locking the doors manually with the key does the trick,but if you've already done this,try disconnecting the battery for 10minutes. that should do it for you. if your batterys weak,your security system may go off to alert you that somethings wrong. if it resets,suggest you have the battery tested or being bad. thank you for choosing fixya.com!

How do I reset the security system?


You can try disconnecting the negative power cable for 1 minute and plug back in. Or use a hand-held diagnostic system.

Problem with the security system Jeep cherokee '95


To reset the alarm, you have to lock everything back up and then use the key to unlock the tailgate FIRST. After that, you can unlock any of the doors with the key without the security system locking everything off.

(Needless to say, I gained familiarity with this situation from personal experience!)

How to reset 1995 nissan sentra security system


larrylisa2: When you refer to reset, do you mean arm the system?
If so, it can be done providing all the doors, the trunk and hood are closed.
Using your key, you can lock the drivers door or passenger's door and it will arm the system. The trunk, all the doors and hood must be closed.
You can also arm the system without the key in the same fashion insuring all the doors, trunk and hood are closed.
To disarm the unit, you can do this from the driver's door, front passenger's door or the trunk lock.
The other option is the remote. There is one other way to shut down the alarm system. Disconnect the negative battery cable, put the ignition key in the run position and reconnect the cable. This will keep the system from arming until the car is locked.
There is no reset procedure other than the ones I have described.
