Use the key to lock it and unlock it in the drivers door then use the key in the ignition. It will take 30 minn- an hour for the security to reset before trying this.

Recently purchased my 2003 Highland er. How can I tell if my security system is working. There is no light, I have the book and have followed the instructions, but still no light.

Lock up the car, but leave a window down taking the key with you. Then reach through the window and unlock and then open a door. The alarm should sound and you will need your key (or opener) to stop the alarm. If it doesn't alarm, you have a problem with the alarm.

How can i know if my car has an anti-theft device or not?

You can roll your driver side window down lock the doors and close them. Then reach in the window from outside and open the door from the inside without unlocking first, if there is anti-theft the alarm will sound. If alarm does not sound you don't, hope this helps!

My car alarm doesn't beep any more when I lock it. any help?

Fuse for car alarm burn out. Can you do a test break in. Don't break a window or anything, just leave a window down, set alarm and then open door by reaching in and unlocking the door. Does your horn work still? You may also have change the setting somehow to the silent mode or what is also called valet mode. If alarm still works and horn works, I am sure your setting is changed somehow to the valet mode.

I can not get the alarm to go off on 2002 denali

try this for me. roll the window down on the drivers side, close the door and push the lock button on the remote 2x and a chirp noise should be heard from the horns. now reach in and manually unlock the door[don't use the remote or power lock switch]and open the door. this is a test for factory alarms not aftermarket. the alarm should sound.

Car alarm won't shut off.

Lot's of things can make it do it but with the drivers door window open. close and lock all the doors. ( said close the doors as in open them and close them back and make sure they close good ) Once all locked up unlock the drivers door with the key twiced once unlocks the door the second time it unlocks all the doors and the thrid time it'll unlock the hatch too. If it does'nt and the alarm is still going off open the hood and close and lock all the doors again. disconnect the battery, ( the alarm will certainly stop then), With the battery disconnected and all the doors closed and locked, put the key in the ingtion and turn it to run ( nothing will happen as the battery is disconnected ) This next part is important. The batterycables should be clean anyway but if their not they need to be clean for the next operation. With them clean put the positive on first and tighten it down now put the negiative onlike you mean it ( don't let it bounce and connect it. The alarm should'nt be going off as the car has the key on. Reach in and start the car ( I did'nt say open the door). with it running it should'nt be alarming either. Turn the key off and remove it them open the door and get in and restart the car itshould be back to normal.. Most of the time one of the door switches said to the computer that it was opened as it was supposed to be locked or it was opened after it was supposed to be locked and you left.

HELP! Earlier this evening I went to a store and pressed the tab on the door to lock all the doors and then pressed the individual lock tab, so that when I returned I wouldn't have to use a key to open the...

assuming you don't have an owners manual for the car either, my guess would be to use the key to lock, then unlock the door from the outside. It should disarm the alarm when unlocking and entering the vehicle in the usual manner.
