Battery on car went dead, bought a new one, every time I hook up positive post car alarm goes off??????


May want to try connecting the negative cable last. Also, try locking and unlocking the door with the key or disarming the security system. The security system may have caused the old battery to go bad if it has a malfunction.

Replaced battery in my 1993 jeep grandcherokee limited now security system seems to cut fuel off seconds after engin fires


Here's some info as it sound like the theft deterrent is armed.

---
Reset Procedure

NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.

When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.

The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.

Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the liftgate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.

Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.

Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.

My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo wont start, everytime I try to start it, it makes this loud noise like a buzzing sound, and then the security light starts flashing and the brights light starts flashing...


If your battery has not been drained, try unlocking the lift gate or the passenger side door. That should disarm the alarm. You may need to get a jump if you're getting the flashing lights.

Another thing it does is to shut off your fuel pump. If you get it started after trying the above procedure, the issue is definitely your alarm system.

It is armed whenever you normally leave your car (using power locks seems to arm it on my 94 GCL.

There is a permanant disarming procedure on FixYA but it is pretty radical -- you have to find one of the wires that sends the signal to the alarm system from one of your door locks and ground it.

I don't know about a dedicated fuse but you can try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then, with the battery still disconnected, turn the ignition key to on, then reconnect the battery. This has been a known way to also disarm the factory security.
If that doesn't work, and if you are handy with vehicle electrical, you can ground the factory disarm wire, to permanently disarm the factory security. It's location and color;

The remote does not disarm the alarm and unlock the doors. Trunk also will not open.


I would say that the problem is the remote. change the batteries in the remote and see if it will work then. if it still will not disarm the car then it could be a problem with the security system itself.
new batteries can be bought at your local RadioShack*,auto parts store,or a auto security intallation shop.

If the engine will start, and the car is drivable, find the alarm and disconnect it until such time as you can get to a repair shop. If disconnecting the alarm kills the engine, then use a jumper wire to bypass it. If the car won't start because of the security system, I'm afraid you will have to have it towed to a dealership or repair facility to disarm it.

I am trying to install a new battery on my 2000 ford taurus and when connecting the negative the horn starts blowing and wont stop and the car wont start


when the horn starts to honk just put the key in the ignition and turn the car to on, you can also use the key to lock and unlock the drivers door, you are activating the security system by disconnecting the battery doing the above disarms it, if it still won't disarm then you need to see the dealer on this problem
