Its better you reomove the installed alarm you dont have to remove and restore everything just 2 things the ignition that has be interrupted and the factory alarm in the hood just cut the alrm horn wire. For the ignition you will have to go under the console and remove the panel to access where they have interrupted the original wire. Identify the the ignition wires there you will see where they have splice a wire to a relay match thhe colors that they interrupted and restore that wire (its a 4 wire relay) use a but connection and ensure it does not fall apart start the car if the alarm horn goes off just cut it(NOT the car horn)
deactivate the alsrm with remote or lock then unlock door with the key try another door if drivers door wont disarm it. that is for factory alrm
after market alarm needs remote or some button somewere under dash
best way to fix an after market alarm is to remove it
it probably isnt a factory alartm it most likly a dealer installed after market alarm or one of those chip type starter locks.look under dash for a little connector looking thing with wiers going to it NOT THE TRAPAZOIDAL CONNECTOR if it has that one you will have to reconnct the start wire that was cut to allow the thing to work [add on thing has failed] or look for wires that are not in neat order with splices to various things and a plastic box usually zip tied somewere under there. repair cut during installation start wire.
if it were a factory alrm simply lock and unlock door with key try all doors in case lock cyliner switch is bad on drivers door, also remote should do it to
You cannot disable the system because it's tied directly to the ignition system. The remote is most likely not the primary cause of the issue. Anti theft systems are directly wired to the computer and are designed to disable the vehicle if necessary. It sounds to me like you have two issues. One being the remote. Change the battery and it should function properly, but you may still have the problem of the lights and the alarm sounding off due to the sensor on the ignition switch itself. That will most likely need to be replaced to resolve the issue. Hope this helps, good luck!
You might have a problem with the antitheft system, I don't know what you've done or tested so far. But usually with the alarm enabled there wont be any start at all. It does sound like there is a problem with the ignition switch, but that's only if it starts and stalls after you let the ignition key go. The anti-theft alarm, is this a VTD, factory system, a factory alarm system, or an aftermarket alarm?
This may or may not help. Hopefully it will. We recently purchased this 1998 chrysler town & country. Everything was working fine, started fine, etc. we took it to get emissions done.....passed emissions.. .made it home. i turned the car off to run inside for a minute. came back out car started.. ran for 3 seconds than died out. tried again... ran for 3 seconds than died out... after that it no longer would do anything. all the lights worked except in the ignition module. the top dashboard lights worked though. I then noticed that the "alarm set" light stayed lit. after replacing fuses and running an OBD test and found no trouble codes or issues with fuses it dawned on me it may be the alarm. after searching the internet for hours i found a forum that suggested unplugging the battery for about 5 minutes....rehook it and then try starting it again. well i tried doing that the first time using the REMOTE to unlock the doors and nothing happened. i locked the doors and repeated the same battery unhook-rehook process except without using the remote... (i noticed a lot of forums saying that the remotes can be deffective in that they somehow trigger the alarm if the transmitter is not working properly)... so after unhooking and rehooking the battery and using only the key to unlock it started right up! so i've decided to not use the remote at all and have had no other problems. let me know if this helps
