Hi Terry,
Most alarm systems require you to reset the tamper alarm.
Most systems will reset the tamper simply by arming the system and then immediately disarming the system. However, you MUST make sure that the Tamper circuit you tripped is closed. If you removed the cover on the panel, make sure the tamper switch for the cover is in the correct position and that the cover is pressing the switch and closing its contacts. If you are trying to arm the panel with a cover off, the tamper circuit will not reset unless you defeat the tamper switch. Just make sure you remove the defeat when you replace the cover. You may also wish to try a google search on the type and model of panel you have so you can download a copy of the manual to check on the reset procedure. We also need to know what brand and model the panel is so we can help you further..

If the antitheft system is armed and isn't recognizing the key for starting, the dealer should be the next place it should be towed for reprogramming the key to the computer.

SOURCE: How to disable alarm system. The alarm went off

okay, this alarm reset is done by turning the key on and pushing the reset button a few times, you will need to try this a few times to get the correct number of pushes,for example turn key on and quickly push 3 times and if that doesnt work retrey it and push it 4 times, take note that every time you try you need to turn key off and then on again before you push reset button,i know it can be set to 1- 2 -3 or 4 pushes to reset, this is programed at the time of install, most installer dont set it or tell you so you will need to try all four. good day.

Where is the alarm controll box on the 03 malibu


Alarm box ? You mean anti-theft system ?
The Passlock?"¢ System is provided in order to prevent vehicle theft if the ignition lock cylinder is forced to rotate or the ignition switch is operated while separated from the ignition lock cylinder case. If starting is attempted without authorization from the Passlock?"¢ System, the powertrain control module (PCM) will disable engine starting. Start disable may be in the form of fuel disable or starter disable, depending on engine application.
The components of the Passlock?"¢ System are as follows:
?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder and key


?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder case, including the Passlock?"¢ sensor


?€¢
The ignition switch


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The security indicator on the instrument cluster


?€¢
The powertrain control module (PCM)


Body Control Module (BCM)
The body control module (BCM) contains the logic of the Theft Deterrent System. The BCM provides the battery positive voltage to operate the Pass lock" sensor. The BCM also measures the voltage of the security sensor signal circuit. The voltage measured will indicate whether the Pass lock sensor has been activated and whether the resistance value from the sensor is a valid value or the tamper value. If voltage measured is in the valid range, the BCM compares this voltage, voltage code, to a previously learned voltage code. If the voltage codes match, the BCM sends a class 2 message containing a password to the powertrain control module (PCM). If the voltage codes do not match, or the voltage is in the tamper range, or there is a circuit fault, the BCM will not send the correct password to the PCM, and the vehicle will not start.
there is nothing you can do , if your vehicle won't start you need to take it to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop. Messing with the anti-theft system may render your vehicle useless .

My 1998 Ford Ranger will not crank or start is it the factory alarm or anti theft alarm? How could I fix it myself


Is the security light flashing while trying to start the vehicle ?
The theft warning system provides the vehicle with protection from unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment and engine compartment (hood opening). It also protects against engine starting through ignition keylock cylinder tampering. If triggered, the system provides both audio and visual alarm signals and disables the starter circuit.
Sorry but you will have to take it to the dealer if it's the anti-theft system

What is causing the anti-theft alarm light flashing/horn blowing go off?


the remote key would be the easiest (and cheapest) thing to try first but i don't think that a low battery in the fob would activate the alarm randomly , i'd get the OBD codes read as will point to which part of the anti theft/central locking system is causing the issue

Why would the anti-theft alarm go off?


Factory alarms rarely false alert, maybe someone did tamper with the car and ran off before you saw him. The one thing that will often trip alarms is a bad battery in the car, have it tested. Your car may have an add-on alarm in which case anything goofy can happen. It's odd that you had to hit the panic button to shut the alarm off, but if it functions normally otherwise it's unlikely to need a new battery. Is it at all possible that you hit the panic button and that caused the alarm to sound? If it was in your purse or pocket maybe it got pressed in which case it might be normal for you to have to hit panic again to turn it off.

Where is the reset button located in a 2003 Honda Odyssey for the anti theft?


If the remote was programmed before loss of power, push and hold the unlock button until the alarm stops. If not try locking and unlocking the drivers side door with the the key. This has reset the alarm on my 2001 Odyssey.

You will also need the unlock code to reactivate your stereo after long term power loss. It is on a card with the manual given to the owner of new vehicles. A smart dealer will put it on a sticker in the glove box. Otherwise you have to remove the radio and give a Honda dealer the radio serial number to get the unlock code. Don't try it randomly; 10 incorrect tries locks the stereo.

Alarm at my house randomly goes off , it says bell tamp ,it is a pr5208 system , is there any trouble shooting points you could give me please


Do not know that system, but normally the bell is the outside horn or bell that sounds when the alarm is activated. Some systems have a tamper switch in the mounting box so if someone attempts to remove the horn while the system is set, the alarm sounds.

2011 golf tdi airbag removal


Driver side you just slide a screwdriver behind the steering wheel. Passenger side you need to remove glove box to access the unit above it. NOTE: Always disconnect power from the battery before tampering airbag unit and have the radio code ready when connecting power from the battery since it will lock up for anti-theft protection.

Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
  • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • 26 circuit connector (C256).
  • 22 circuit connector (C257).
In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
Prearming and Arming the System
The system can be armed if:
  • The ignition is OFF.
  • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
  • All doors are closed.
There are two ways to prearm the system:
  • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
  • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
Disarming an Untriggered System
An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
  1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
  1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
  • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
  • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
Disarming a Triggered System
If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
  1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
  1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).
