How to bypass alarm system lost the remote 02 ford expedition

Factory alarm is Passive. Passive Anti-Theft System. It is a transponder chip in the key and a transceiver ring around the lock cylinder. If the alarm starts go off when set and not unlocked with remote or key, inserting the programmed key into the ignition and starting will disarm the system, shut off the horn and flashing lights and allow the vehicle to start.

It starts, but why does it cut out after 1 sec?

Maybe your alarm system not recognizing the chip in your key or your key fob battery needs to be changed.

When i turn on my 2005 jeep chereokee the car turns off and a red circle comes on the dash on the right side. what is causing the car to turn off?

That red light has to do with the alarm system of the vehicle. This system uses a key with a small chip located in the key head. When you start the vehicle the alarm recieves a signal from the key. If the alarm is not seeing this signal it will cut off power to the engine and that red light will appear. While there are a few possible reasons this can occur I think the best place to start is with the key. Did you recently get new keys made?

Hello, we have a problem with our Saturn SL 1997. Suddenly the alarm system started. We did not do anything which could start an alarm system. We tried to put the key into the ignition but nothing...

My guess is it has something to do with the anti theft security system. This is the system that has to do with that little black chip in the shaft of you key. Is the SECURITY light lit up on the dash when you put the key in? If you see it at all, this is your problem. Check this link for info and answers to the problem.

Lost keys for chevey truck 2000 utility truck 350 chevey truck need to know how to disable factory alarm system to start the truck

This is close to imposible, you would need a scan tool to reprogram a need chip code into the computer, now if theres no chip the power locks or the door lock should deactivte the alarm system, if you dont have a door key then you would need to remove the door panel and manualy turn linkake on the lock as if it were the key, but i think the 2000 had a key chip.

Key Does not Work.

Ok, If it is the Factory Key, It should have the Plastic Finger grip at the Top. This Finger Grip has a Transponder Chip inside that Tells the Ignition that the Key is the Correct Key for this car, Go ahead and Start. These Transponders do Stop working Sometimes. If you will take the Key to the Dealer they can Reprogram the Key to work for you. But, It has to be the Factory key for this. If you have had a Key made, The key will not have the Chip inside it and will only work on the Doors. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

Alarm bypass. alarm system faulty

This had been done many times before.... But it is VERY involved and you HAVE to know what your doing. To bypass the little "chip" in the key, you have to know its resistance value in ohms, then you get a resistor of the exact same value and put it in-line in the wire that reads the chip in the ignition. Then you have tricked the system into thinking that the right key is always there. Like I said you have to know what wire it is, what kind of resistor, and what value to put in. However the payoff is no more expensive keys....keys without the chip will now start the car, sience you have tricked the passkey system into thinking the key has the chip in it.
