As always , check fuses,.!!!!!
fix alarm. or skim.,. is horn active? honking?
open FSM and read that section
04 close?chapter 8Q-1

The FSM does cover this.
as does
read it.

or get help
there are only 2 ways
or get help.
the former takes books and meters. and tools and skills.

the lost (sure) operators guide in the glove box shows
how to see why alarm is active.
is this not really IMMO, immoblizer>? called SKIM
if skim is unhappy the car will not start for more that 2 seconds.

the 2 lamps SKIS or VTSS, what are they doing.?
the SYSTEM reports errors via the DTC memory
use any scan tool to see the errors.
DIY with no scan tool is impossible today. sorry. not.

eg: page 8q-5
skis lamp fashes means. wrong key, or corrupted key. (try spare fob)
same lamp solid , means SKIS is INOP.
this key is a transponder
never own ANY car like this with 1 key, or fail, or even get stranded.

the dash lamps are key (no pun) and so is the operators guide
get it and put it back in he glove box.
be safe.

I have a 2005 lincoln ls i drove through water up to door car died it wont start it keeps clicking but battery is not dead, aslo the alarm keeps coming on after i try to start it lihts flicker to?

My advice is not for Lincoln cars only but all cars equipped with electronic control units and sensors.
Entire vehicle needs to be checked for electrical system integrity due to possible water damage. Especially fuse box/boxes, damaged relays and fuses inside if there are any. Before its done, its better to not turn on the vehicle. You can separate positive terminal from the battery if its applicable. Alarm comes on possibly due to lack or mixed signal/voltage coming from system sensors to control unit.

I went to unlock the driver side door of my 91 acura legend and i guess i set factory alarm off.i do not have original key and my car wont start.. help p[lease!!!!!

The alarm must of activated , the alarm is controlled by the locks, go to passenger door and use the key to lock and then unlock the door, this will shut down alarm, you may have to use the passenger door to shut down alarm due to a bad switch in drivers door, this will allow you to start the car, you can also not lock door and alarm may not arm. let me know if the passenger door lock works, good day.

My remote for my car is not working. The battery is new and works on the battery pad in Autozone, but when I try to unlock or lock my car it doesn't work. This is causing me not to be able to turn my car...

The module is at fault. You can not bypass this for if you do it still won't start. The module runs in sync with the theft deterent system wired to the computer for its programmed this way

My 2001 s type jag wont start due alarm

Is the car alarming when opened on the fob? If so you have a control module fault. Try opening the car with the key. as soon as you unlock the door, open it and insert the key in the ignition - this should bypass the remote control. If you still have problems with this method - you will have to take it for repair/replace.

hope this helps. good luck

Lost keyless entry remote

The fuse for the alarm is under the hood. Give a good look and you should find it. Once you have pulled it it will deactivate the alarm I am not sure if this is exactly your problem since you said that the car wont start.... but it is worth a try.
