You need the dealer to scan the system to see which door ajar switch triggered this.

SOURCE: 1998 cad alarm no start

Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.

      Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the key forward until it can go no further, without starting the vehicle.

    • 2
      Press and hold the "Valet/Override" button located under the dash. Hold the button until the blinking LED light on your dash is solid. Switch your "Valet" button to "Off" if you have a button labeled "On/Off." Your alarm should now be reset. If you wish to enable the alarm, repeat these steps to turn the alarm back on.

      Remove wires from your battery if you wish to temporarily turn off your alarm. Disconnect the wire connected to the main power source to permanently disarm your alarm. Trace all wires connected to your battery and disconnect them. If you have no familiarity with your vehicle's wiring, you should take your vehicle to a neighborhood installer to disconnect the wires for you.


God bless you

Dealer Ruined my Air Ride and wont admit it.


The Dealer did what ever they did for a reason

The repairs needed to be done & you authorize them

If you requested non ford oem parts,I would think the
dealer discussed the result with you

Obviously the dealer gave you the car back when they
knew it wasn't working correctly

I can not say I ever heard of that

I know they send you one your way &
don't fix much or charge a lot,but you
need them to resolve the issues at their
expense

I barely know what your taking about

They disconnected some of the factory
air ride systems knowing it would do just
what it is doing or someone went home sick
& thing went from bad to give them the car
back & don't care

I don't have a keyless remote and the alarm went off until i pull the battery cable


  • If this is a factory alarm then hook up the battery and put the key in the ignition. Not turn the vehicle on. This should disable the alarm if everything is working as it should. If it does not then there is a malfunction somewhere.

How can I disarm the Alarm. I bought my 97 Cabrio used (it didn't come with the remote) The Door locks also don't work. I can't drive it because when I turn the key the alarm goes off and it...


If you don't have the remote then its pretty much useless. I have seen at Pep Boys where they sell replacements for the factory/dealer installed alarms. Or just remove the alarm completely and reconnect everything the way it was.
Without knowing what brand alarm it is a person cannot honestly answer how to disarm it as they all work differently.
If you know a brand and model you may be able to find downloadable instruction on the manufactures web site.

When i try to start me 2008 sonata the alarm goes off and the engine will not turn over. what can i do?


Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key.
Solution #1
Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again.
Solution #2
Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

I have 98 Camry Le and the door locks lock automatically shortly after the doors are unlocked and the alarm will set also. What could be the problem? Alarm Control Box?


if you use the keyless entry to unlock the vehicle & don't open a door within 30 secs.the vehicle will automatically lock & the alarm will reset,if you unlock it with the key this shouldn't happen.....cheers.

I dont have the remote to the stock alarm on my 2003 hyundai sonata and my alarm wont turn off and my car wont start


I know this sounds obvious, but did you run your battery dead? If you don't know, get the battery checked.as for as tuning off the alarm... Just simply disconnect your negative battery cable. This will reset the alarm. This doesn't solve the problem but makes it less annoying while figuring it out. What about the battery in your remote, is it dead? Look for any wires from the alarm that may be frayed, cut, or corroded. Hope this helps.

hand it over to a mechanic or Nissan. If you recently had an M.O.T and it went of quickly then ask for a refund, even better, ask him to take a look at the car again
