Is the alarm factory fitted, cheap, or a top of the range.
the factory alarm you can pull the cable of the horn untill you get the car started.
there are some alarms that go off when there is a voltage change, and some will keep going for a couple of minutes if the battery is dead flat untill there is power to equilze the power abit,
and some alarms have a key over ride in the siren.
if its a cheap alarm take the battery of and charge it,(the alarm will cut out as soon as the battery is disconnected.
~dont jump start from a dead flat battery, as it can cause a lot more problems with the electrics, leave another car running with the jump leads on for at least 5 min first.~

2005 Kia Sedona. Battery Died, now when trying to jumpstart the alarm starts going off when cables are connected and jumper car is turned on. Could this be a security feature of the factory installed...


That is exactly what it is. You need to find out how to reset the program. Check your owner manual. It could have it in there. If not, you should be able to call your Kia dealership and they can give it to you. You will need all your info from the vehicle.

1993 Jaguar xj6 won't start, battery drained of power. Went away over xmas and new years so have not used our 1993 Jaguar xj6 for more than 4 weeks (probably more like 6 weeks!) and battery hence lost all...


Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.

Is it turning over or just nothing, also starter motor may be jammed. put the car in gear with the hand brake off and push the car forward until you feel the engine turn over. You dont need the keys in the car!

This should free the starter off, sometimes they jam very tight and will not move at all, on these jags. they get rusty quickly if sat about. I had a XJ many years ago great motors.

Good luck.

1992 saab 9000 car won't start, try to jumpstart to go get new battery when we put cables on the alarm goes off take cables off alarm stops help!


Jumpstarting cars with electronic ignition is not a good idea. Your car is also fitted with an immobilizer, hence the alarm going off. Get someone to drive you to a place that sells suitable batteries, and fit the new one. You should be fine.

Hi, my name is Grace and I have a 1993 Acura Legend. Recently, my car's alarm system has been going off each time I open the door with the key or try to start it in the ignition. I'm unable to drive it...


I had the same problem Grace and even mechanics could not figure it out at first. I called 3 Acura dealers to find answers.

Mine began acting up when a door lock broke and when it broke, the alarm started going off out of the blue.

But.....I want you to know that the drainage of electrical that the alarm drained my battery. Jumpstarted battery and alarm would immediately start back up and drain it again. In the end, it fried my alternator. It was pretty crazy because the radio was going off and on by itself with the alarm blaring and no way to shut it off.

Answer is there is no way to remove the alarm system because it is all integrated in by the factory, Acura dealers told me. Your car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off like that, so keeps doing it. The fix was to insert my key into the driver or passenger door lock and turn the key back and forth 3X. That resets the alarm and stops the whole problem.
