Car alarm goes off while driving then car wont start

Car alarm started going off while i was driving. I don't have a keyfob just the valet key. I had to turn car off, get out and shut alarm off with the key in the drivers side door. when I get back in the car it wont start right away. I can get it started after a min. or two, but then the alarm will set when i close the door and start the car! Now the past few days i cant even get the car to start and my windows stopped working all together. The car isn't worth much and I can't keep pouring money into it. (I just paid 750$ to fix my power steering) I really want to just yank out the alarm please help Thanks

SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: Alarm haywire, can't override anti-theft system or turn on car

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

SOURCE: After alarm goes off, all electrical works except car won't start

hi there
from what it sounds to me is that the alarm is still in anit theft mode
i had this happen to my vehicle

one thing you can try is lock all the doors try and unlock from the passenger side make sure that all the lock come up to the top where they should be
then try it

if that does not work then lift up the rear of the car like it was being towed and it should reset the alarm
short of that you will have to have alarm shop come to you

How do I turn off valet on from the keyfob

Instructions
    • 1
      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

Ideally, purchase a new keyfob and have it programmed by Ford.
Batteries will go flat after none use for a month or two because the alarm draws power all of the time.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

Just locked my doors on a 2010 jeep liberty and went to get back in and key fob is not functioning. can i get in without setting off the alarm or what should i do?


Open the door and immediately place the key in the ignition, that will shut off the alarm. The batteries in the Keyfob are probably dead and need to be replaced. You will see that the keyfob can be opened, though do it carefully, and you can replace the batteries. This will fix the remote. You may also have a valet button in the car which temporarily disables the alarm and will keep the alarm from sounding if the door is opened.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima


Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Alarm


My Jetta has done this before. I get back in the car and somehow the alarm starts going off. I've always just used my keyfob to first lock and then unlock the doors again and it goes off. Hope this works for you!

I have a hyundai xg300 and my remote to control my alarm got wet and is ruined. When I open the car door the alarm goes off and disabled me being able to start my car. How can I bypass the alarm to start...


I had a similar problem. Eventually, I discovered that only the valet key would set the alarm off (The XG300 came with both a driver's key and a valet key. The valet key cannot open the trunk) Perhaps this could help prevent you from setting your alarm off in the future.
