Security alarm problem

In nov 08 i bought a 93 z28. i recd 1 regular key only. the car had been stored all winter. when i went to start it today, it wouldn't start. i put a new battery in it, and alarms started going off, and the horn started beeping..., there is a problem in the alarm system i think. what do i do?? (besides take it to a car alarm place again?" is there a fuse, or can i by pass something somehow??) all the while the car was stored, i'd start it now and then, and a red 'alarm' light still flashed...all was good till the battery died.....?????

    key fob? would that be a little box like thing that is held in your hand and with it you can push buttons for the alarm, locks etc? if so, no, i don't unfortunately.. and to make things worse, i don't know if it's the factory alarm or not...to disable the alarm, maybe there is a fuse???

Do you have the key fob? Alot of alarms will go off if you unhook and rehook the battery. All you should have to do is disable the alarm after you unhook the battery. Is this a factory alarm or an aftermarket one?

    If it is a factory alarm, try hooking up the battery and when the alarm is going off, unlock the drivers door with the key. It should shut down. If it is aftermarket, look under the dash, drivers side look for wires with fuse holders that are that are not in looms, if you find some try pulling the fuses out of these fuse holders. The key fob is the black box with the locks and alarm buttons. If you buy another one you can program it to work for your car.

My Security light in my 2000 Pontiac GP flashes for at least 10 min after I start my car, how can I reset it?


Turn the key to On position (make sure heater fan is off or kill the battery) and leave key in the on position for 30 mins.
Pull the fuse out of the security system and replace it again to reset it prior to this and see if that helps.

I recently bought a 93' Grand Prix, it's only 130k


If it acted like it wanted to start, then I would suspect the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the tank, this sometimes jars the pump to start working again. If it works you can drive it, but you will need to replace the pump, it will only do this so many times.

I would start by cleaning battery cables top and ESPECIALLY bottoms. I know a pain, but the lower ends are exposed to road grime & grease. Also have your battery "load tested". Between all the electrics and the required voltage to run ignition, they can be a pretty big load on battery. (I have 93 M5 and it has same issues when I store it over the winter months)

If it's the factory security system that honks the horn and flashes the headlights, you can shut it off by turning the key in the door cylinders or in the rear tailgate key cylinder. If it's an aftermarket alarm, look for a small silver switch under the dash and usually turning the ignition on and flipping that switch will permanently put the alarm into valet mode. Good luck.
