It resets the check engine/service light on the dash. Press and hold "wrench" button while turning the ignition to "Start" on AUDI and Mercedes. Fun fact: The Mercedes automoblie was named after the carmaker's Daughter. Not the other way around.as is true with Porsche or Chevy namesakes. Happy Motoring, TechJoel

Car wont crank or do anything no clicking or noise when key is turned sems like alarm is engaged


look around under the dash area etc there should be a red or black push button. This is called the valet button. If you find this button turn the key to the on position and hold the button in the alarm should beep twice I believe and this turns the alarm off.

Here is the reset procedure:
1. Have the Valet Button in the OUT position. ( It is located on the dash panel left of the steering column)
2. Connect the battery - the alarm will sound.
3. Put the key in the ignition and turn to the ON position,
4. Push the Valet Button to the IN position.
The alarm will be reset, and the Valet Button will glow red.

Move the Valet Button to the OUT position again.
Repeat steps 3 & 4 and the Valet Button will become unlighted.
The car will start and everything will be fine.

1996 audi wont start sometimes and the alarm goes off


1996 Audi if you are a aftermarket alarm look under the steering column and the dash area look for a small push button or a black push button when you find it push it and try to start the car,and if you are a aftermarket alarm you can adjust the sensitivity it on the transducer, If you are a manufacature alarm you ll have to find a auto electric tech who can remove the alarm this will consist of bypassing the alarm relays,and the alram horn

I bought a Chevy Trailblazer, used, had keyless remote access Viper Alarm after manufacturer. Had trouble with transmission and alarm....took to Chevy dealer they replaced transmission. Now the remote...


You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.

Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.

How do I reset the "service now' message on my 2008 Passat?


With the key sitting in the ignition but NOT on (not even accessories...the key is in in there but literally just about to fall out) push and hold the wrench button. Count 5 seconds, start the car while still pushing the wrench button and then push the min button on your clock. You must be holding the wrench button and the min button at the same time to reset the service message.
To test if you've reset properly, turn the car off and start it again. If you've reset properly the 'SERVICE NOW' will not appear and is automatically reset for 5k miles.

97 jetta GT alarm won't let car start. how can i disable?


If you not good with a wrench don't try to remove it. I am not sure but you can try two different things one lock and unlock the driver side door about 3 time then put the key in the ignition and try to start it, someone else said to remove one of the battery cables wait about twenty min. or so and replace it and try. If you do have to have the guy fix make sure he takes it out and gives it to you.

I have a 1995 eagle talon, with alpine alarm system, my remote battery died. the alarm is activated and wont go off. how do i shut it off? id disconnect the battery but i don t have the right screwdriver...


Depending on who installed it, there should be a small button, located somewhere under the driver side dash. Different shops install these buttons in different locations, so it's hard to tell where it may be, but that's the usual place.

Turn the key to the "on" position and push the button.

Depending on the alarm, there may be a certain number of times you have to push it, but normally it's just once. You will hear a confirmation "chirp" from the alarm horn when it is disabled.
