You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

It is possible that you have a weak battery. You may want to try to jump the car with another car that is idling. If you get the car started then it is a weak battery. If not inspect the wiring especially for the ignition and the high tension wires.

Check the serpentine belt for cracks or slick spots as well as tightness. It's possible the belt is slipping and not replenishing power back to the battery.

BATTERY KEEPS ON GOING DEAD AFTER IT SITS A WEEK HAVE A DRAIN FROM VAIROUS CIRCUITS ATC


the best way to test this is to take off the battery and let it stand for a time if the battery still gos flat its the battery its self,, if its good after a week or so use an avo meeter to find out how much of a leak you have got, if its only say about 100ma's or so its the alarm draining the battery any more than this look at the alternator this could be were the leak is draining back all cars leak a small amount of curent from the battery if left standing my 4x4 would have a flat battery in a month if i left it stood
the way to get around this is to get a 12 volt solar charger the bigest one you can get your hands on say at least 2.5 watt's there about £20
it only needs day light to charge the battery up but full sun light it better
plug it into the cigarette lighter socket and that will keep the battery charged up when you leave the moter standing around unused byt do take it off before you start the engine up or your going to cook the charger up,,my 4x4 never ever had a flat battery after i fitted a solar charger it was the best £20 i ever spent,, its now keeping my motor bike battery charged up!!!!!!!!
