Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I don't like carrying a FOB. When I unlock the door and open it with the key, the alarm goes off until I start the car. That's real annoying. I have been told by a local repair shop that on an 07 focus there is nothing I can do to fix this. This has also been supported by other internet sites. Would like to have the ECM reprogramed to disable all vehicle security systems. Is there a way I can do this myself with a laptop application and a special cable? I will be happy to take the chance without the security system to remove this annoying condition.

If its a factory installed unit talk to dealer service.. if its an aftermarket unit need to find out who put it in ..I have read that purposely disabling the system will kill the car..if its just the horn blowing, I would disconnect the horn .and be done with it..

Try disarming the car from the trunk. Sounds like the door lock switch is not deactivating the alarm, which it should, with or without the remote.

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

SOURCE: I have a 95 VW Jetta III that I just purchased.

Insert the key into the door lock on the driver side and move it to the unlock position two times quickly. That should turn off the alarm.

I recently purchased a 2001 dodge neon thats missing the radio. When i unlock and open the door the alarm goes off untill i start the car. Car runs with no problems.


Are you using the key to open the door or the key fob? The key fob should turn off the security once the door is unlocked.

Car alarm goes off when unlocking door


You will needs to think of it this way. Once you set your alarm it is looking for the corresponding signal to disable itself. That comes from the fob. If you don't use the fob and just use the key, the alarm system is doing its job and alerting you since it has not received the disable command from the fob. Either lock the door with the button when you exit the car if you want to use the key or use the alarm fob. This will also happen if you use the car manufacturers fob to unlock the car if you have locked it with the alarm manufacturers fob.

Hope that helps - I have hidden all of my original car fobs to help alleviate this problem!
