SOURCE: alarm keeps going off

did you unhook the battery before you changed the starter ?. regardless unhook the battery for about ten minutes to reset the computer on your car then hook it back up.... if you have an anti-theft stereo make sure you know the code and how to enter it first.

Check for water entry into vehicle, may be getting into engine control unit. Engine C/U located behind glove box on right hand drive vehicles so if water entry is the problem then the windscreen seal is the most likely point of entry.

How do you turn off an alarm for a 2005 Saturn Ion


Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the CTD armed mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the armed mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in arm pending mode, SECURITY indicator flashing and doors open, perform 1 of the following:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode:


-

How to disarm a Pontiac G6.


Go into your settings on the radio and change it to RKE. The alarm will beep when you unlock the doors via your keys but stop once you turn the ignition on, the alarm will not arm unless you lock your doors either.

Replaced battery in my 1993 jeep grandcherokee limited now security system seems to cut fuel off seconds after engin fires


Here's some info as it sound like the theft deterrent is armed.

---
Reset Procedure

NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.

When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.

The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.

Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the liftgate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.

Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.

Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.

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.

"Factory Alarm keeps going off" No matter how many


There is a good probability that you have the PRESTIGE alarm. There is a hidden microswitch somewhere around the left kicker panel. It is also called the "valet" switch. It will disarm the alarm, but still allow the remote to unlock the doors.

My 2001 tahoe alarm keeps "auto" arming itself after about 30 seconds. How do I stop it from "auto" arming? Its driving me crazy


this alarm works with the remote and the key, if you lock with the key it arms if you lock with remote it arms,when you unlock it it should disarm, if your having a problem with it not working try the pass/side lock with key, that should shut it down but if it keeps rearming without locking doors then it may be aftermarket, also in your manualy it will show you that some factory alarms are also self arming this is programed through the cluster, using the buttons on the dash, you scroll through the options and shut off auto arming, this is done the same way you scroll for mileage or trip time or oil change life. hope this helps.
