Question about 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Alarm trouble I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder and have lost the alarm button. The other day, I accidentally set the alarm off. I tried to start the car to get it to go off and it would do nothing. I finally had to disable the car battery. My brother who is a mechanic in another town, told me to find the switch or button that can turn the alarm off. Can you tell me where I might find this switch? He told me it should be under the steering column. But I am a woman and do not take instructions well.Thanks Kim

    I have a 1994 Pathfinder and my alarm goes off randomly even when turned off. I have come to the conclusion that my vehicle is possessed.

    II locked the keys in my car and set off my alarm. Normally once I have my keys back I will lock the doors and unlock it withthe key and the alarm system is deactivated. For some reason this is not working. The key ( which is the original key I received) wont even unlock the doors let alone start the car. I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

There is no switch to turn it off. when the alarm is in alarm mode you have to lock all doors, then use key to unlock drivers door or rear hatch. This will turn alarm off
