It would be a good idea to have it scanned at the dealer because some can have sensors inside the door and at the roof area and all around the car because it is a theft alarm...,They can be a difficult project !!!!! If you KNOW everything is well connected and was replaced correctly The system should reset itself each time the battery is reconnected......Save time and have the alarm system scanned..

SOURCE: 1996 honda accord no turn signal

Check the wiring in the front and back to lights for shorts to ground, if nothing is found replace the turn signal switch, be careful to disarm the airbag before doing any work on the column as the steering wheel must be pulled to replace the turn switch.

Two of my smoke alarms went off (no fire/smoke in or near house), one has a green light blinking and one has a solid green light, which need a new battery/reset?


The constant green LED means the alarm has AC power.
A flashing green light every 2 seconds without an audible alert means the unit recently sounded ( was the one activated ) and is now in latching mode to let you know that it was the unit that detected the problem. To clear the latching mode hold down the test button for 5 seconds.
Red LED flashing once per minute means that the back-up battery is connected and functioning.
Red light flashing constantly during alarm means that it is the unit that initiated the alarm siren.

How to change altonator on sedona 3.0


Disconnect battery negative terminal. ( make sure you know your stereo code if it has one before doing this)
Disconnect the alternator wiring.
Remove the alternator drive belt
Remove the alternator locating bolts.
Take out alternator.
Reverse instructions for refit.
Once refit is complete, check charging rate across the battery terminals. It should go up to 14 volts with the engine at 2,000 revs.
Good luck.

Alarm goes off even after unlocking with remote


If the alarm has a siren with a backup battery, then check the condition of the siren battery. Is it drawing a large charge (drop in amps from the battery. Run a parasitic drain test). If so, then the siren could be at fault.

Is the alarm fitted with a sonic motion detector? Looks like two tiny speakers in a unit fitted in the centre of the dash. If so, this unit could be faulty.

Many after market alarm systems by the way, tend to only last for a few short years before failing. Is this an aftermarket product or factory?

Alarm seems to work; been checked at Toyota but they say siren is broken and say it's a common fault. But everything else seems to work - you can hear the relay clicking; lights flash.


What is actually the problem, "Actually seems to work", what doesn't work.
If Toyota are on about the 9volt battery back up siren then the main siren may be working fine, but that might not be. Most cars especially Vauxhalls have a 9volt battery back up siren, so if someone tries stealing you motor and they disconnect the battery the 9volt battery will keep the siren going off.

How to turn off the alarm,, Changed the battery now the alarm will not go off on my 2001 XG300.


Do you still have your Key Fob? The siren is impossible to turn off without the Key Fob.
Can you start the car? If working properly, the siren will be accompanied by all the marker lights flashing and the car's ignition being disabled.
If you can still start your car, you may have to disable your siren. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
When the battery was installed, did the fuse on the positive side get damaged? Did any wires get pinched or otherwise shorted against the positive terminal or leads? Check all over that area to make sure all is well.
If you absolutely have to, you can pull the siren relay IF it doesn't disable your ignition too. AGAIN! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS A GOOD IDEA, but needs must as the devil drives.
If you disconnect it, get it into the shop as soon as you can. You don't want to be without your anti-theft system for long.
I wish you the best!
