2004 Ford Explorer not starting

All lights work, inside and out. dash, radio, everything except the car turning on. Is there a reset button for the alarm? It seems like it has to do with the alarm system.

    We changed the battery terminals on the truck and now i will not start. everything is on but it will not even crank. we looked at the fuses and everything is fine there and all the cables seem, to still be attached to the starter.

    if it is a factory alarm no reset, consult your owners manual for more info.

Is the engine turning over? When you turn the key to the on position, does it behave normally? IE, do the battery and airbag and other lights come on when you turn the key to on position?

It happened to me and after I had two mechanics look at it, my husband used his key to start it. From that point on my key worked ok.

How to disable alarm system. The alarm went off


okay, this alarm reset is done by turning the key on and pushing the reset button a few times, you will need to try this a few times to get the correct number of pushes,for example turn key on and quickly push 3 times and if that doesnt work retrey it and push it 4 times, take note that every time you try you need to turn key off and then on again before you push reset button,i know it can be set to 1- 2 -3 or 4 pushes to reset, this is programed at the time of install, most installer dont set it or tell you so you will need to try all four. good day.

Car alarm stopped working.. Car wont start


the jetta has a faulty alarm system from the factory i have been working on one in my shop. the alarm moddule is inside the dash behind the light switch and has a 10 pin connector and a 6 pin connector. this can be bypassed if you disconnect both connectors and jump the two large wire on the 6 pin connectors, these wires operate your starter. the car will start and run but your alarm will no longer be active. the door locks and everthing else will still work. the only issue i am having is the factory radio isn't working because it is controlled by the alarm. but worse case scenario i can use an aftermarket radio if need be.
