How do I reset the alarm on a 2005 hyundai Santa 2.4l


Not sure about yours, but many will reset by: turn key to "on" and wait 15 minutes or so; shut off, then try to start.

2001 mitsubishi eclispse gs wont start how do you bypass the security system


  • 1 Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the caricon1.png. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
  • 2 Locateicon1.png the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
  • 3 To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.

  • Hope this helps!

    Lost original car alarm control... need to reset a new one...



    programing a Nissan remote , is hidden secret by Nissan Dealers. As a Nissan Technician i will share it.

    Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion .. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..( note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try.

    I need to somehow reset my factory alarm on my 1995 Nissan Maxima


    this is how most nissans program the key fobs.
    get in the car and manually lock the drivers door with the door switch.
    put the key in and out of the ignition about 10 or 12 times until the hazard lights flash once.
    turn the key to the ignition setting so all the dash lights are on,but do not start the car.
    click the lock button on the remote fob.the hazards should flash once to confirm.
    turn off ignition and remove the key.
    unlock the drivers door and open the door.
    the remote should now work.
    if that does not work,the dealer can reprogram the fob with the obd diagnostic system.

    Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


    Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
    A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
    B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
    C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
