Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I removed an aftermarket alarm in my 02 blazer. Red, pink, and yellow wires were spliced, put them back with electric tape. Now truck starts and instantly dies, and alternator makes quiet buzing sound

Everything was normal, except odometer and gears display stayed lit up. Truck ran fine. Unplugged battery, when plugged back in, alternator clicks and has a soft humming, buzzing sound

Was it just an alarm or a remote starter unit? Sounds like fuel pump is not running but alarms are not installed in such a way as to affect the fuel pump (liability reasons). As for the buzzing are you absolutely positive it's the alternator?

    Thanks for trying to help bigdawg. The problem was simple- the truck was stolen, and ignition wasn't working right. It wasn't completely switching the power off. I've been meaning to take that mickey mouse alarm/power door lock installation out for years. Obviously, it didn't work- it still got stolen. But they didn't get far...the tank was empty! An empty tank is a great theft deterent!

You definitely have wires crossed. I would undo your splices one at a time until the lights go of and the alternator stops it's thing. Then check the wire colors again closely

How do I remove alarm brain box from wiring on a


"I bypassed the immobilizer circuit only on my alarm module (which is really tedious). Bypassing the whole
module is possible (and little easier), but you will lose the use of the remotes and the ability to arm the alarm.
The alarm module in my '97 900 SETC is located under the carpet, below the driver's power seat switches (a
pain to get at).
If you want to bypass the module completely:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from alarm module and remove module from car
3. Install a wire jumper between pin 8 and pin 20 in the connector
4. Install a wire jumper between pin 9 and pin 21 in the connector
5. Install a wire jumper between pin 10 and pin 22 in the connector
6. Wrap securely with electrical tape
If you want to bypass the immobilizer circuit only:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from the alarm module
3. Cut the following wires from the back of the connector and splice together as follows (Don't cut the wires too
close to the connector, because someday down the road you may want install a new module, so you'll have to
reverse this process):
4. Cut the wires to pin 8 and pin 20 and splice together w/ wire nut
5. Cut the wires to pin 9 and pin 21 and splice together w/ wire nut
6. Cut the wires to pin 10 and pin 22 and splice together w/ wire nut
7. Secure all with electrical tape
8. Reconnect the connector to the module
Not knowing the details of your problem, please be aware that this may, or may not, solve it. Good luck and let
me know how you make out."

Ran over immobilizer gadget for a 2000 toyota corolla. Now the car won't start what can i do?


2000 its aftermarket two ways remove the alarm and do away with it or find the switch to turn it off its either a small red button you press as you crank to start the engine or its a small micro switch. Better yet remove it. go under the dash you will have to remove the panel to access the relay find where the aftermarket alarm installer spliced into the ignition switch follow the wire colors thhere cut it and restore it back the way it was two colors from ignition will now match there use a but connection or solder the wire back together and wrap electrical tape to protect it from shorting out.or you can just drive it to a shop that know how to repair and remove the alarm you need two person . some one in the car and someone direct the starter by jumping the solenoid to battery with thhe ignition in the on position and someone in the vehicle so it doesnt take off and run you over

How to disconnect car alarm 1999 hyundai elantra it auto sets


You have a aftermarket alarm if you want to disable it it would be safer just to jump the origianl splice made at your alarm, go under the dash at the steering coulumn there follow the ignition wire you will see a relay there Now here the fun part the vehicle ignition wire is a solid or stripe wire there the alarm installer cut it and attached it to a relay where they made the cut you will go and restore it back to the original condition leaving the rest alone if you decide to use a but connection make sure it is connected properly if you solder the connection make sure you protect it with electrical tape so it wont short out you may have to disconnect the alarm horm under the hood and not the car horn it that simple

Security system is locked out, will not let use start van


If the headlights are flashing, the alarm system is factory installed. Inserting the key into the driver door lock and turning to the left then back to the right is supposed to disarm it. If the parking lights are blinking,, the alarm is an aftermarket add on, and there should be a disarm button under the dash on the driver side. If it' an aftermarket alarm, you should be able to have it removed. There is a way to bypass the factory alarm. There is a wiring harness in the driver's door. You will have to remove the door panel to find it. The wire is dark green and purple. Splice into that wire and ground it to the chassis and the alarm should no longer work.

How to change ignition switch


REMOVE THE STEERING COLUMN HOUSING. LOOK AT A CONNECTOR ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HOUSING YOU JUST REMOVED. THERE WILL BE RED OR RED/BLACK WIRE AND ALSO PINK, YELLOW, BROWN WIRES ALSO COMING OFF THE IGNITION CYLINDER . THIS WOULD BE THE RIGHT CONNECTOR TO REPLACE. YOU MAY SEE 2-3 ADDITIONAL COLORED WIRES ALSO.
DONT TOUCH ANY CONNECTORS THAT ARE YELLOW OR WRAPPED IN YELLOW TAPE. THESE ARE AIR BAG WIRES.

no. what you have there are some very unrelated electrical wiring problems most likley the result of years of aftermarket alarms being installed and other various back yard mechanics going to town with a soldering gun and electrical tape, best bet is to bring it to a qualified automotive electrical shop, but its not going to be cheap, i get 100 a hour for electrical diagnostic and repair
