SOURCE: alarm problem on my 2001 elantra

This alarm system can only be 'disarmed' using the keyless remote programmed for this specific vehicle. Press the "Unlock" button on the keyless remote -- this resets/disarms the alarm system. If you do not have keyless remote for this vehicle, get one and have it programmed at a Hyundai Service Center. Problem solved.

SOURCE: My colt sometime does not start, I switch alarm

If its the manufacturers alarm, I don't think you can otherwise criminals could also...if its an after market one sometimes there is an override button (Tiny red) one down in the drivers foot well somewhere.

SOURCE: I replaced my 2.8 Colt

as it was a diesel then you have put in a petrol engine so i must assume you changed the wiring loom and the computer then the rev counter should already be connected within the wiring loom on lexus ,the rev counter will connect to the computer where it measures the impulses sent out by the ECU to coil pack .Although not knowing exactly what you done to fit this engine its difficult to say exactly ,the only comment i can make is how do get away with changing the original engine thats on the certificate of homoglonation ,doesnt this vehicle have to go for a annual vehicle mechanical inspection?? also now its a pertol engine vehicle it has no value unless its for weekends in the mountains on private roads for yourself ,as a diesel engined vehicle it would have been worth anything from 5000euros upwards but a petrol engine ?? 1000 euros if your lucky anyway best of luck with a job like this i miss this sort of work though to be truthful a good weld and cut and shut ,i cannot even fit a spotlight here without paying 80 euros to a so called technical engineer for a signature and they have to be fitted by a authorised garage with a tax number and a member of the association de talleres a concensionares espa?a ,but dont go their ----

01 Xterra dead battery. Tried jump, when I turn key alarm goes off blocks starting. Fobs wont disable/unlock. Only gets power to anti-theft. *Alarm doesnt go off opening door only turning key to start

You could try disconnecting battery, leaving overnight and then inserting ignition key and switching on before reconnecting the battery.

It has sometimes worked for me but in reality it seems you probably have an alarm immobiliser fault you need specialist help with.

My 2007 Hundai Sonata battery completely discharged. I recharged the battery with a trickle charger, but when I reconnect the terminals I haven't been able to stop the alarm or start the car.

Stick your key in the ignition and turn to start. That should stop the alarm. However, it sounds like your battery still isn't fully charged. Computer things go haywire when battery voltage is 9.6 volts or less.

1994 toyata camry the alarm goes off and will not let me start the car.

factory security does not have toggle switches as far as I know so it is probably an aftermarket system. Try one of two things, turn the toggle switch the oposite direction with battery disconnected. Reconnect the battery and try again, the horn will beep a few times when you reconnect. try starting. If that doesn't work, disconnect the battery and turn the key to the on position and reconnect the battery and the horn will sound but will go off get in the car and try to start. It should start and run normally. shut car off, then you should be able to return the toggle switch to the previous position If this happens again turn the toggle switch to the opposite position with the batterry disconnected and turn the key switch to the on position and reconnect the battery and start when started go see a service that installs aftermarket systems and they should be able to reset it security system Hope this helps
