Your alarm is ]n valet mode. If your led is pod mounted there is a button in back of it. If your led is hard mounted in the dash, you'll have a hidden switch usually mounted on the kick panel or under dash. Either way, turn on ur ignition push the button turn off the key, your led should go out. Hope that helps.

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.

2006 jeep liberty. In the middle of the night the jeep would make a honking noise with short honks. We never had the alarm set. What would cause this and how would you turn the alarm system off.


the alarm automatically arms 30 seconds after you lock the doors
i looked around online and found info for you

The FACTORY ALARM DISARM WIRE IS
lt. green/orange '-'conn. 2, pin 9 @ the BCM.

The factory alarm disarm wire is
negative trigger thru a 473 ohm resistor.
MUST use relay. The BCM
(Body Control Module) is attached to
the left of the fusebox.
Connector 1 is a gray 26 pin plug,
and connector 2 is a gray 22 pin plug.

Once Located, splice into this wire with
a simular guage wire, add the specified resistor
and put it to a solid chassis ground.
This terminates the alarm functions entirely.

However, at this point, this car would be exceedingly
easy to steel, so I suggest you get an aftermarket
alarm system to protect it from here on in.

Take this info to your local
stereo/car alarm guy and have them
do this for you.

This is what I have for the Golf 2001:

*1 The drivers door module is located in the drivers door.
*2 A double pulse will unlock all doors and disarm the factory alarm.
*3 The passengers door module is located in the passengers door.
*4 This wire will read the dome light delay. The avoid the dome light delay, use the separate door trigger wires and diode isolate each one. They are brown/white and are all located in their own door at their own door module.
*5 The comfort module is the main control module located under the drivers side of the dash.

Use this diagram for the door trigger isolation: motorsport.com/images/install_notes/149.jpg

Use DIAGRAM A.


Hope this helps.

How can i disarm the factory security alarm.i have tried the key locks. i have no remote with the car. i didnt know it had an alarm when i bought it . 1995 chrysler cirrus


Here is what I do on my 95 Cirrus I also do not have a keyless remote (well I do but is broke) and after frustation after frustation trying to disarm the factory alarm I find out that by unlocking the passenger front door with the ignition key from the outside will disarm it you may have to try few times before it's disarmed you need to make sure that the blinking red light stops blinking and all of the locks on all 4 door are up or unlocked, this is what I been doing for 3 years now and that's how I disarm the alarm on my car, I hope this helps.

1995 Nissan Maxima alarm system


Hey, I bought my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE brand new back in July 1994 with factory installed alarm, it just doen't make any sound when you arm or disarm it with remote. The only way you can tell whether it is armed or disarmed is from the lever position of your doors and the blinking red light under the dash. Only the newer versions of Nissan/Infiniti's has the "Audio/Silent" mode button on the remote which allows you to activate/deactivate you car alarm with an audiable sound or no sound at all. No worry, there is nothing wrong with your remote or car alarm.

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
