After alarm goes off, all electrical works except car won't start

When the key is placed into the drivers side door and the car is locked, the alarm system goes off. Once the door is opened and the key is placed in the ignition, the alarm stops, all electrical works, except the car will not crank. Any ideas?

    I can't stick my key all the way into the driver's side door for some reason. So any ideas after that?

Hi there
from what it sounds to me is that the alarm is still in anit theft mode
i had this happen to my vehicle

one thing you can try is lock all the doors try and unlock from the passenger side make sure that all the lock come up to the top where they should be
then try it

if that does not work then lift up the rear of the car like it was being towed and it should reset the alarm
short of that you will have to have alarm shop come to you

On the driver side the actuator is more likely the culprit,the linkage could of come off or the actuator just doesnt work

I don't have the door key to my 1997 Nissan Maxima and my remotes are no longer working at all, how can I bypass the alarm going off so I can drive the car? The anti theft system won't allow it to start


after the alarm stops going off... do not touch anything... wait 10 minutes or longer... if you are in the car with the doors closed, and the alarm has run through it's cycle and is no longer sounding, do not touch the locks or open the door you will set off the alarm again each time you do this.... attempt to start the vehicle, it will probably just turn on but wont crank or start. this is the immobilizer. It thinks you are tying to steal the car. Since the 97 does not have a key with a chip in it, it will eventually start. However, only after I waited almost 20 minutes without touching anything except to put the key in the ignition and try to start the car withdrawing the key completely each time. This has only happened to me twice because I just don't lock the car anymore. I keep nothing of value in it ever. Each time I got the car to start after waiting and apparently it will start after some time if you push to roll down the driver side window... Haven't been able to find any other mention of this on the internet, somehow this was the trick to getting the car to start again after my remote quit working, and like you i only have a worn down ignition key. It worked for me with all doors except for the drivers side closed. I just kept trying to insert the key and start it, while rolling the drivers side window up and down. Eventually it started after like 30 minutes and after one press to roll down the drivers side window.

NEED A WAY TO DISARM THE SECURITY ALARM


ive had this happen changing batteries on grand cherokees-close the doors and with the door key lock and unlock the drivers side door with only the key.then try seeing if the security lite goes out and start the car. sometimes this doesnt work on dr. side and you have to do the same on passenger door. this is for the factory alarm.

Put the key in the driver door lock (or the trunk lock if you don't trust the driver's door- quite often on a vehicle of this age the wires break in the door and it won't electrically de-activate the alarm due to the broken wires)
Disconnect the battery.
Turn the key to the unlock position (toward the front of the car if using the driver or passenger doors) and release it- it will go back to centered, but will retain slack in the forward direction
Then reconnect the battery. You may get one beep out of the alarm horn. If it beeps continually, turn the key to unlock again.
As long as the alarm is de-activated it will not prevent the car from starting. If you are still having a problem it is not alarm related.

Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

1997 Jetta GL Alarm


First to turn off the alarm you simply put the key into the drivers door and turn it to unlock the door twice, this is the factory setting to turn off activated Volkswagen alarm. As for the power locks they are air activated, in the trunk near the latch there should be a small electric motor that drives a small air pump with air lines running to all your locks. If this electric motor as worn out your locks will not operate, simple fix replace the motor. I'd try a used one first from a scrap yard to make sure but always check to see if there is power to the motor (you will need another person with a test light to perform this job). Let me know if this works. Vdubs 4-ever !

2002 ford explorer-alarm goes off in the middle of the night...no one around Alarm goes of whenever it wants to. I don't lock my doors, because when I unlock them the alarm goes off and will not stop even...


At one point the door was lock from the in side and then closed and then unlocked with alarm, try un-locking it from the drivers door, then from the in side push the un-lock button and then close the drivers door. U should have no problems with it, but they do say that putting the key in the ignition and then do what you would like starting it but don't and do it 2 times and then start it will tell the alarm that it is not stolen.

Do u know that key less entry code to your drivers door?
Let me know if you would like your code that is if you don't know where to look.

Alarm system keeps going off on 1991 Acura Legend. Disabled horn to keep from bother neighbors all night, but lights flash and drain battery. How do I diable the alarm system. Car repair guy says he...


I had same problem, when a door lock broke, the car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off. Mine started going off randomly when this lock broke. You have to reset the alarm system, with my 1990 Acura it was reset finally by putting key in door lock and turning key back and forth 3X. In my car, it was OK to do the key in door lock cycle in the passenger side door lock, but Acura dealer told me not all Acuras will reset it via passenger side key cycling, some require driver door lock key cycling only. I was lucky since my driver side door lock was currently useless, that my car allowed it to be done by key cycle on pass. door lock. But try that and if it doesn't fix it, just call acura dealerships until someone tells you the right answer. In my situation it took 3 dealerships with 3 different answers until this was the right one for my 1990 Legend.

PS I was told you can't disable alarm since it is all integrated into the battery and starting system, but read on another post that someone disableld theirs by disconnecting the horn.
