    can you drive the car without the alarm hookup i think this the best option unless you take it to a alarm repair place. car stereo place can do most repair. going to the alarm website, manufactures name, state, city, zip code, part ###'s, model ##, see if they have tech support, a phone number to call for issues with alarms. www.wikipedia.org, www.ask.com, www.infolinks.com

If fine the fuse for the alarm, remove the fuse, see if it will start and then shut it off, than replace the fuse.

or

try just removing the negative off the battery post of the battery of the car that will reset everything in the car.

Need new keychain alarm button


Is this a factory installed alarm system? If so, unlocking the driver door with the key will allow the car to start. If not then you will have to remove the aftermarket alarm system to start the car.
If you have a factory alarm system you can get a new FOB (key chain alarm button) from a ford dealer, but it must be programmed using a scanner , before it will work in your vehicle.

Problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser


You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

Factory alarm


the only way to reset an alarm is to disconnect the battery cables.

there is no such thing as an alarm reset switch.

My suggestion would be to go to autozone, they sell replacement key pads.
