U will need to go to the dealer and have a scan tool hooked up to test what the problem is.

How do I disarm the alarm system on my 1998 volkswagen?It wont start ,cranks but wont run..I changed the plugs still wont start,someone said could be in the alarm system to disarm it.


The alarm would cause the car not to crank, and the alarm horn would sound. You can try unlocking the car from the trunk lock to disarm the alarm. But crank and no start could be a bad ignition switch. Do the dashboard lights stay on or go out while the key is in the crank position? They should remain "on". Worn ignition switch could cause the car to crank but not start.

Disarm alarm


Get in the car, shut the door, and insert key in ignition.

Turn the key to the RUN position (NOT start, but the position the key is in when the car is running. You DON'T want to start the car).
Turn key off.
Repeat this 10 times quickly (ON, OFF, ON, OFF, etc)

Many alarm systems this is at least one way to reset or over-ride the alarm.

Ran out of gas. filled, now it won't start.


Sounds like you activated the anti-theft alarm somehow.
I would check the owners manual on how to disarm it.

Theft alarm acctivated , would not disarm. finally shut off, now won't start at all but will crank over


Look for a little antenna in the middle of windshield if it has a button on it press to reset. If not look for a kill switch usually on plastic under steering wheel on TH left side around where the bottom of your leg is when u sit in car if you find one switch to opposite other position . If that doesn't work you have to find out what wire is stopping power to your ignition if there's a local alarm place I would suggest having them take the alarm out and back to factory

When i try to start me 2008 sonata the alarm goes off and the engine will not turn over. what can i do?


Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key.
Solution #1
Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again.
Solution #2
Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

2004 Hyundai Elantra won't start, emergency flashers keep blinking, can't shut off, lights dim, can't jump start, clicking from under dash from relays. What could it be?


The 'Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm System" is activated. You must 'Disarm' the system using the Keyless Entry Remove (Key Fob) to "Reset" the system. The reason the engine won't start is due to the burglar alarm - it has a "Starter Kill" circuit which is activated when the alarm is activated. The alarm must be DEactivated to DEactivate the 'Starter Kill' circuit.
Another way to start the engine is to get in the car, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'ON" and wait 3 to 5 minutes until the emergency flashers stop/turn off. Afterward, you should be able to start the engine. NOTE: This does NOT reset the burglar alarm. It will go off again when you enter the vehicle without using the remote/key fob.
