As you will be disconnecting the battery and fuses, a reset is inevitable. The Engine Control Module and Body Control Module if you have on, hold certain bits of information, the main thing is the anti-theft chips and the emissions test data.

Make sure your battery is disconnected for at least 2 hours to fully discharge the system and reset the anti-theft system. Leave the car 15vminutes after connecting the battery.

Bmw x5 2008 - fuse box diagram


A 2008 BMW X5 has 2 different possibilities as thas it a split year. It can have 2 different fuse box setup based on if the vehicle was made before or after 11-2008. You can look on the driver or passenger door jamb for a factory production sticker with the exact production date. ALso a power distribution box should exist under the hood. Here is images of the passenger compartment fuse box and each fuse for both options that year.

I don't have a button and it wont start how to fix 1996 gmc jimmy


If factory alarm, lock drivers door with key, wait an hour should automatically reset, if it's a factory alarm and you have no keypad. Try removing the fuse for the alarm and wait a few minutes and replace fuse and see if it will reset the alarm.
If its an aftermarket alarm system, look under plastic panel below steering wheel for a plastic black box that is about the size of a deck of cards, izip tied or just hanging with a plugin with several different colored wires and unplug it. That will shutdown an aftermarket alarm and vehicle should crank

Battery light on, replaced alternator and battery. How can I reset the light??


THE BATTERY LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT BY JUST STARTING THE VEHICLE. IS THE BELT OK? PUT A DC VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY, WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING, THE VOLTAGE SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80. ABOVE 14 IS BETTER. UNDER 13 THE BATTERY IS NOT BEING CHARGED. IF THE VOLTAGE IS OK & THE BATTERY LIGHT IS STILL ON, THE ALTERNATOR OR REGULATOR IS BAD. IT WOULD HELP IF I KNEW THE YEAR & MODEL OF THE VEHICLE. CHECK ALL THE FUSES BIG & SMALL IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD FIRST. REPLACE ANY BLOWN FUSES, RECHECK VOLTAGE. IF IT IS STILL LOW TEST ALL FUSES IN THE INTERIOR FUSE BOX.

I took factory stereo out and blew the radio/anti theft fuse, now my car won't start after replacing the fuse. what is the problem?


Check manual for antitheft reset procedure. Some you have to put key in drivers door, other passenger , so I'd try unlocking vehicle with key at both doors.

2006 dodge durango. put it in park and all doors should unlock or when driver door opens should unlock all doors and doesn't. Fuse or programing? do it myself without taking it in?


There is a fuse under the hood, box toward the front of the vehicle. The fuse is one you have to pinch the clips on each end (30 i believe) just disconnect and reinsert. This resets factory defaults including having to reset your clock. I seem to have to do this every year.

After unlocking or opening door, lights flash for 2 minutes regardless of starting vehicle with correct key


Brian,

Sounds like you have a factory, or aftermarket alarm system that was disconnected from the siren at some point. I am guessing it is aftermarket based on the fact that it will not disarm even if the correct key is used. If it is an after market alarm your problem is relatively simple to fix. Most after marke alarms are typically installed to the indicators by connecting the wires from the alarm into the cars factory fuse box. Locate the fuse box in your vehicles cabin and find look for any electrical wires that go into the fuse box from the front (WITHOUT REMOVING THE FUSE BOX). remove these wires or just the one going to your indicators, headlights, or whichever lights are flashing. The factory never connects wires to the fuse box from the front, so these wires should be obvious.

No power to tail light on trailer- 2004 Dodge durango factory tow


If this is a factory light harness for the trailer hookup on your Caravan. Look under the hood for a fuse box. Many 2000+ vehicles have this with separate fuses just for the trailer lights.

After market alarm went off and could not be reset. disconnected the system that was tapped into the ignition wires. still no power to anything including lights power locks windows ect. black box mounted...


what year is the Mustang? It does sound like the factory keyless entry module and the clicking is a relay inside of it. In order to disable the clicking, you would need the factory keyless entry remote or the aftermarket alarm system would have to be correctly wired to the vehicle's alarm disarm wire. A professional stereo shop would be able to handle this for you.
