Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima

I changed the battery on 1999 Maxima but can't start car because the security system is on. Alarm on remotes no longer work even with new batteries. I need to turn the valet switch off, but can't find it. I know there is one but can't seem to find it. I need to know where under the dash or elsewhere to look to turn valet switch off to disarm alarm system so i can start the car. Please help me find the valet switch!

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 wont let me start the car

you need the remote control of the alarm to turn the alarm off.

you may need to change the battery of the remote in case it would no longer control the alarm or if you have a valet switch to turn off the alarm, then use it.

the immobilizer is working that is why you can not start the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,
