New battery, can't reset alarm

I bought this car used, and the seller didn't have the remote for the alarm. It hasn't been a problem till I had to replace the battery. Now as soon as I connect the battery cables, the alarm goes off. I have tried to start the car to no avail. I have tried using the key in the door to lock / unlock the doors many times... Is it possible to reset the alarm without the remote? I'm guessing that this is the factory alarm...

Remove the alarm,their might be a passive switch on the alarm to turn it off with a special key,if you dont have the key break the lock so you can turn it off or try to open case of alarm and look at wires and then dertimine which ones to join or break,every alarm inside is different so you will have to work it out.

If you don't have the remote then its pretty much useless. I have seen at Pep Boys where they sell replacements for the factory/dealer installed alarms. Or just remove the alarm completely and reconnect everything the way it was.
Without knowing what brand alarm it is a person cannot honestly answer how to disarm it as they all work differently.
If you know a brand and model you may be able to find downloadable instruction on the manufactures web site.

My battery died and now the factory alarm goes off as soon as I hook up the battery. How can I fix the alarm


Hook your battery up, then use your remote to lock then unlock the doors a few times. Sensors in the door lock should reset the alarm. If you dont have a remote , use your key. Do both doors as sometimes one wont do it. Mike

Whaat does the key fob battery low mean on my saturn aura?


Your remote for your car needs a new battery - take it to a Watch shop or mass merchandiser ( like Walgreens, Kmart or Walmart to name a few ) and they can replace your battery. Don't wait, as your remote will stop working very soon and you may not be able to turn off your alarm, although most alarmed vehicles can shut off the alarm by unlocking the door with the key. The remote is called a key fob.

After market auto alarm will not reset


Hi..
Is there 2 options to replace the Battery in your vehicle.
If you Don't have the REMOTE CONTROL.

1-- try to locate the VALET Switch. is used to activate and deactivate the Alarm.
Normally is located Near the Fuse box panel Inside of the car.
and some times on Left kick panel.
If you found the switch. Connect the new Battery and go inside of the car Turn the Key to ON position and Push ( Move the lever up or down) of the VALET switch.
Them try to start.

2-- Just With the BATTERY disconnected .
Go inside of the car And turn the Ignition Key to ON position leave it.
Now connect the Battery and the Alrm will NOT activate.
Go inside and try to start.
And Letme know.

I hope this help on your problem.
