Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

I think I may have triggered an anti theft kill switch on my 03 expedition 5.4. It has a viper alarm, but I found a spare and activated the door code and now it won't start. Everything else comes on.

Van won't start after thunderstorm set off viper alarm system


Not saying this is your solution. I would do the simple thing first. Disconnect the battery for 5 to 10 minutes and see if it allows the alarm to reset. If not call your local car alarm installer. Maybe Best Buy. These companies will more than likely help you out

Remote starter does not work but will unlock and lock doors.


depending on your alarm which it sounds like a viper model maybe? on my 02 you have to incorporate a factory alarm bypass module in order to be able to start the truck, they run about 100.00 bucks and have to be profssionally installed. The truck wont start because the computer isnt recieving the proper starting sequence due to the factory alarm

You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.

Viper car alarm


ok this is what im going to have to say to this one and theres no way anyone can help over net in hooking wires this is a site on seen hands on serviceing for car alarms and it takes about 4 hours to install
i recommend spending the money and have a certified alarm tech install your system there are alot of wires and modules to install on the vehicle
im not trying to be mean or rude but this is a complicated alarm system that requires a techs touch so that your vehicle wont come out haveing problems afterwards
some vehicles wireing needs to be cut and this is not safe i have an area on fixya that i speak of proper wireing and who should do the work this you should consider
