Car alarm preventing car from starting


Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

I removed my ignition switch on my 1998 f150 then reinstalled it alarm sounds and wont crank


Use the key to unlock the door. It sounds goofy, but your truck needs to have the door unlocked with the key so that it knows you're not trying to hotwire the vehicle.

Key cut for 97 ford f150


If you already have a key bring it to walmart. If you dont, take apart your ignition assembly and get the part that the key goes into and bring it to a lock smith. They are usually very good at making keys.

Ignition alarm will not stop 97 ford f150


The key switch usually breaks or wears out and makes contact. It is on the lock cylinder. This would cause the chime to not come on, or stay on. Sounds like the switch is bad.

1997 F-150/250 Warning Chime, Key-In-Ignition The key-in-ignition chime warns that the key is still in the ignition when the driver's door is ajar. The key-in-ignition warning chime will sound when:
  • GEM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or ACC position and the keys are in the ignition.
  • CTM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK, ACC or RUN position and the keys are in the ignition.
The key-in-ignition warning chime will stop sounding when:
  • Driver door is closed.
  • Key is removed from the ignition.
  • GEM: Ignition switch is switched to the RUN position.
The key-in-ignition warning chime inputs are:
  • Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
  • Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on RUN/ACC input only).
  • Key-in-ignition switch (grounded with key-in-ignition, open circuit with key-out).
  • LH door ajar switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
This is a pic for a 98, could not find one for 97 which may be the older style which is more prone to break.

Alarm goes off truck won't start.


sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm not factory most of these alarma are equipped with a starter interupt that will not vehicle start. when connecting the battery ist is normal for the alarm to sound some alarms may not sound if ignition is on while connecting battery, however this is not reccomended. after connecting battery and alarm sounds you should be able to turn it off with trasmitter, if you do not have one then you will need to put key in ignition turn it on and look under the dash for a valet switch or togle switch this may override the alarm and let car start if you cannot locate this you can alway locate the alarm box under dash and unplug it as last resort most alarm defaults will let the car start when this is done. hope this helps
