SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

I have a 2008 Impreza Outback Sport and the battery ran down (I'd been away and the car had been sitting for too long). When I tried jumping it from my friend's car, the alarm kept going off. The horn...


Okay,heres the problem the battery is low and the alarm is going crazy without enough voltage but something to try is to connect the jumper cables and have all doors shut. leave the cables on for a few minutes, if the alarm starts to go off as soon as you connect cables then dont wait, take the key and go to drivers door and lock and unlook the door lock with the key this will shut down alarm system and then try to start the car, it should start up and let run for a while, also the computer may have lost its idle memory so this means you will need to hold the gas pedal a little to keep it running, after a minute you can slowly release it and let it idle, you will know if this needs to be done when you start the car and it dies out, you will then strat it and hold gas, just a little bit enough to keep the engine running, hope this helps, have a good day.

Something worth trying. The voltage on the battery being fine may not guarantee that it's making it to the other end.

I might try taking the battery clamps off and cleaning them and then make sure that they're put back on very securely.

It requires very little power for lights and radios to work, it takes enormous power to turn over an engine.

I hope this helps you.

We have a '94 XJ6, I get nothing from a run>>>start.


there are 2 connections on the bulkhead/firewall. There is one on
each side.The connectors are brass and the insulators are
plastic with a rubber boot. unless these connections are clean you may get all sorts of malfunctions with switches,lights and electric
motors. Symptoms are similar to a failing battery, something to start with..

good luck

Ihave a 1996 Nissan Maxima. I am unable to use the remote keyless entry. I changed the battery but still no good.


You need to program it. Here is how you doit.
Step by step:

1- get inside and lock all door with the "power dool lock switch"
2- insert the key into the ignition 6 times "IN and OUT" nice and steady until your hazards flash on dashboard. You can just keep inserting the key until you see the hazards flash, but 6 times should do it / get you into the program mode.
3-once the hazards flash, turn the key to ACC position (dash light up, but car is not running)
4-press any button on the remote (hazards should flash)
5-turn key OFF
6-remove key
7-unlock door with "power door lock switch"
8-open door DONE.
Good luck
