Question about 1997 Acura CL
I can not start car unless i hotwire the car the alarm went off when i opened trunk we undid batery cable and still will not reset need to deactivate the alarm system can anyone please help.
Try disconnecting the positive from the alarm. Sometimes its connected straight to the battery. If its not connected to the battery look underneath the dash drivers side. Find the alarm brain, the power cable (RED) should have a fuse on it. Take the fuse off, disconnect the negative from the battery wait five minutes. Then connect everything, if you took off the right fuse the alarm should restart. If its still doing it the alarm is not the problem. If you have a trunk switch to the alarm, you can simply disconnect it. These switches are optional and often get corroded or defective almost always causing the problem described. After disconnecting the negative from the battery you might notice your car's driveability different. This is because the car's computer also gets restarted. Don't mess with anything in the car the computer will set on its own. Let me know if you still have a problem after this.
