What type of alarm is fitted to a 2010 hyundai santa fe and can it be replaced or upgraded


OEM (original equipment ), I.E.- the factory, does imbed a security system in the onboard computer. That does not mean that an aftermarket system was not installed. it is very common to add a better security or security/starter combo into vehicles with factory equipment.
the built in systems are not easy or economical to enhance.

Hi, mechanics are good at fixing mechenical components but may not be so good at sorting out auto electrics. Get the services of an alarm installer to resolve the issue. One who is familiar with your device will probably be best.

Car alarm


You need to check if the alarm is factory fitted or aftermarket, i.e. fitted by car security company. You should have some paperwork. I presume you cannot start the car due to immobiliser. If it is aftermarket you can contact the insaller, or someone who does the same brand near you to get you going. Or you can search under the dash for the black immobiler wires and locate and join the appropriate wires. If the system is factory fitted, best to contact your local dealer. Good luck

How do I fix the alarm on my 2002 honda crv


these alarms are tough with out some testing, check all the fuses and make sure the alarm module is powered up.Check to make sure the regular horn still works and open the hood and test the hood pin for the alarm, make sure wire to pin is good and switch pin is good, i will also need to know if the alarm is a factory installed alarm (dealer) or an aftermarket alarm.
The diffrence is a aftermarket alarm is an alarm that was installed after the car was bought , like at a alarm shop or other place. a factory alarm is an alarm that came with car from factory.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

I recently took my 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE van to a dealership and they installed a new BCM (Body Control Module)because my doors and interior lights were not working, etc. After driving it home and...


ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS LOCK AND UNLOCK THE DRIVERS DOOR WITH THE KEY, THIS DEACTIVATES THE FACTORY ALARM SYSTEM, AND YES YOUR VAN DOES HAVE A SECURITY SYSTEM AND A TRANSPONDER KEY, IF THE PROBLEM CONTINUES YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE DEALER RECHECK THE WORK THEY DID, THEY HAVE TO PROGRAM THE MODULE FOR YOUR CARS SECURITY CODE, MAYBE THEY DID THAT WRONG, UNTIL THEY RETEST THE BCM THERE IS NO WAY WAY TO KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS HERE, THE BCM CONTROLS THE FACTORY SECURITY SYSTEM ON THIS VAN, SO ASSUME THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE NEW BCM'S PROGRAMMING...

Security System on 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 malfunctioning


if you do not want to go back to the dealer then take it to an alarm shop which does private installations on cars and trucks because most of the time when they install after market alarms they bypass them or just pull out the factory alarm altogether.
