    The key finally turned! Thank God! My son unplugged the battery for 30 minutes, and turned the locked steering wheel, and voila! It started!

SOURCE: Remote key fob suddenly stopped work

Check out page 57 of the manual:

If that doesn't work, it sounds like a trip to the dealer.

You have to be more specific about what Red Alarm is flashing, now days cars have a dozen Red Alarms and Amber Alarms all located in the cluster, what is the icon or symbol on the Red Alarm that is flashing ?

How can desactivate my alarm in my 99 montero?


Try pressing the lock button on your door then close the door then use your key to get back in, not the remote. If that doesn't work then close all doors,turn your key 1/4 towards ignition,press and hold the flashing red alarm light for 5 seconds and this should disarm the system and allow you to start the vehicle.

Not knowing exactly which vehicle you have this is all I can think of. Hope it helps.

First: alarm went off on its own.(mazda 6 2003). Now when locking and unlocking car sometimes indicators flash and sometimes not. Now red immobaliser light is flashing on dash when driving, then stops...


there is often a small back up battery in the immobiliser unit itself, if you can locate this unit and replace the battery with the ignition on / engine running, then it should not need recoding and work fine after that. The other thing that could be wrong is the key battery (if the fob has one) or the transponder chip in the key head. If the key signal is low the immobiliser lamp will light during driving, but this does not explain the alarm going off. That is more likely either a poor vehicle battery, alarm / immobiliser back up battery, or another electrical fault such as water leakage into a tail-light or even the alarm unit itself when it rains. A lot of alarms are voltage sensing and when the vehicle is parked they will alarm if the battery voltage changes for any reason, though not during driving so the battery in the immob is my first choice to look at.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

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.

Jeep alarm will not turn off


The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
