No reset button as far as I know. Try arming the alarm by locking up your car, making sure everything is closed up including hood and trunk. Are the battery connections tight and polarity correct?

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.

Changed my battery in 1999 lincoln town car...car wont start...I think I have to reset the alarm...where is the valet switch under the dash?


try by removing cables from battery, and hold cables together for about 10 seconds this may reset pcm. If this doesnt work your vehicle needs to put on a scanner. Not just an obd one.

a lot of cars from ford have the pats system installed. you could also have some pcm issues, for the pcm has to relearn some procedures. hope this helps !

I too had this porblem. I[m guessing you changed your battery out. Your car alarm system need 100% power. That small interruption is the cuase of your problems. Look up on your alarm system how to reset the module.

I have a chevy tahoe 1999 4 door. The problems started with my alarm system killing my battery. Now my car wont start and the alarm seems to still be on. Do i need a new starter? Or is there something else...


The starter is most likely fine, the problem is most likely with the alarm system. I don't know enough about the alarm system to help you though.
