    ...to be clear, the siren alarms when key ignition turned on. The siren only stops alarming if key ignition is turned off or 3 minutes pass. I can drive the car during that 3 minutes and all lights etc work also.

    After googling the issue, and dealing with for a month, I had the dealer disarm the siren without issues today. Most probably the internal battery to the siren was bad (the car is 15 yo) and the diagnostic cost almost exceeded the KBB, so an alarm system was uh not a priority, siren silence was. The u tube vid was absolutelyright on, and all works now except the siren!

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: Cannot turn off security Alarm

If this is a factory alarm try using the the key in the door lock and turning the door lock manually. I have seen this issue in chrysler models as well. If this does not work try replacing the batteries in the key fob as this will cause falfunctions as well.

SOURCE: how to turn off the alarm manually without any use of a remote control

If the alarm is a "factory" alarm, cycle the key in the ignition from off to on (where the dash indicators light up), 5 times. This is the reset proceedure for the "factory" alarm.

SOURCE: Alarm haywire, can't override anti-theft system or turn on car

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

How do i disable the siren alarm long enough to be able to drive 100 miles to dallas to my nearest smart car dealer for repairs? The alarm keeps going off when i try to drive it and ive done everything...


I don't know if pulling the fuse is in the Guide or not, but I would try that first. Worst case if you can get to the siren cut the wires running to it.

My battery died on my 2003 tiburon and i tried to boost it and the lights start blinking and the siren goes off but the car won't start


Hello there,

Your Immobiliser has activated the alarm, you must deactivate the immobiliser to deactivate the alarm. go into the car (even if siren is wailing and your neighbours are nosy) close the door and put key in the ignition, turn key to ACC position. Hold down unlock button till you see indicators flash once. Remove keys and get out of the vehicle. Try unlocking and locking. This should be reset.

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

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!

I bought a Chevy Trailblazer, used, had keyless remote access Viper Alarm after manufacturer. Had trouble with transmission and alarm....took to Chevy dealer they replaced transmission. Now the remote...


You need to find the black push button called the valet button. That is the overide. Get in the car turn the key to IGN as the alarm is going off and then you have either 5 or 10 seconds to push that button once and then 2-5 seconds later the alarm is shut off. To put the car into valet mode which means no alarm at all you put the key to IGN push that button once then pull key out at which point the blue light should turn solid blue.

Or option two is you open a door and hit the lock, then unlock, then lock button again on the remote and the blue led will be solid which means no crazy alarm.

The remote is broken, the car starts but the alarm is activated. I can move the car but do not want to drive with the alarm blaring.


Three solutions here

1)disconnect one lead on the siren

2)find the instruction on how to put the alarm in valet mode.

3)order replacement alarm key fob ///have you change the battery in the alarm key fob?

Security alarm goes off


Open the hood and disconnect the ground wire from the siren. It's usually just a philips screw attached to a black wire right near the siren.
Do you also have an ignition kill? I'm wondering if the alarm goes off, the car might not start as well. If this is the case, you have to remove the driver side panel and locate the relay interupt. Once you find the realy you can just disconnect the black ground wire as well.
