How to disconnect the alarm


Depending if it is a aftermarket or a factory alarm, they should all have fuses that can be removed. By removing the fuse, you may lose your keyless entry option. Most aftermarket alarms have a siren that is usually mounted under the hood in the engine compartment area. I've seen where people have cut the wire going to the siren to disable it but keep the power going to the alarm system to keep the keyless entry still functional if it came with the alarm system.
Factory alarms usually use the existing horn for the alarm. If that is the case, you might need someone who is experienced to disable the circuit so that the horn will not sound if alarm goes off but the horn will still be functional when needed. Hope this helps.

How do I disable the security alarm on my 1999 Subaru Legacy? I do not have a keyless entry


If your just dealing with the alarm/horn going off all the time, you can try disarming it when it goes off by putting the key in the ignition and turning it on and of three times ending with the last turn in the on position. This will stop the alarm from sounding.

Horn BEEEEEPS every 5 mins.


Besides the switch on the steering wheel being pushed to control the horns , the BCM - body control module can activate the horns as well .
The horn system consists of the following components:
• HORN fuse
• Horn relay
• Horn slip ring
• Horn switch
• Horn assembly
• Body Control Module (BCM)
System Operation
The vehicle horn system is activated under the following conditions:
• The horn switch is depressed.
• The body control module (BCM) commands the horns on. The BCM commands the horns on under any of the following conditions:
- When the panic button is depressed on the remote control door lock transmitter. For further information refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation .
- When the keyless entry system is used to lock the vehicle, a horn chirp may sound to notify the driver that the vehicle has been locked. The notification feature may be enabled or disabled through personalization. For further information refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation .
Circuit Operation
Battery positive voltage is applied at all times to the horn relay coil and the horn relay switch. Pressing the horn switch applies ground to the horn relay control circuit. The body control module (BCM) may also apply ground to the horn relay control circuit as described above. When the horn relay control circuit is grounded, the horn relay is energized and battery positive voltage is applied to the horns through the horn control circuit. The horns sound as long as ground is applied to the horn relay control circuit

The BCM is receiving an erroneous signal from somewhere , keyless entry maybe. Hooking up a professional type scan tool to view inputs to the BCM would be the first diagnostic step I would do at the dealer .

I have a 2000 ford mustang. Suddenly my keyless entry remote stopped working. I replaced the battery and turned the off and on 8 times and the locks cycled. after which i pushed the unlock but nothing...


The keyless entry system is controlled by the (GEM) - generic electronic module .
Keyless Entry The electronic door lock system has two main components:
  • generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204)
  • keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601)
  • NOTE: Battery power and ground must be remove before disconnecting the GEM connectors to avoid setting false codes.
    Power Locks Operation The power locks feature allows the customer to lock and unlock the doors via momentary switches located on the driver and passenger door. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger lock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger lock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger unlock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger unlock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM.
    Remote Keyless Entry Door Locks Operation The remote entry feature allows the customer to unlock the driver door, unlock all doors, and lock all doors using a valid remote transmitter as long as the ignition switch is not in RUN or START. The driver door is unlocked whenever the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission. All the doors are unlocked when the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter unlock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission. All the doors are locked when the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission. If the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission, the doors will lock again, the horn will sound for 20 ms and the parking lamps will flash for 200 ms to indicate the doors are locked. If the GEM detects the driver or passenger door is ajar during the second lock transmission, the doors are locked again and the horn is sounded twice. If the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of detecting a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission, the GEM will lock all the doors
    • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
    • Ignition switch.
    • GEM.
    • Remote transmitter.
    • Remote transmitter batteries.
    • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
    You followed the program instructions to the letter ? Programming -Keyless Entry Remote Transmitter NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) must be programmed at the same time.
    NOTE: All previous transmitter identification codes (TIC's) will be erased when programming mode is entered.
    NOTE: To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204), perform the following steps.
    1. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN eight times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. If the GEM has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and unlock all the doors.
    1. NOTE: The first TIC must be entered within 7.5 seconds of entering the program mode and additional TICs must be entered within 7.5 seconds of the first TIC. The programming mode is exited whenever the timing constraints are not met.
      Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed.
    1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait for several seconds and press the button again.
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to five minutes after step 1, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the GEM will lock and unlock all the doors one last time.
    1. Take an have the vehicle checked for DTC'S

Diagnose keyless entry system of 1997 Cherokee


Before replacing any Relay. Try disconnecting the negative side of the battery for at least 2-minutes to de-energize the security system, re-setting itself. The reconnect the battery and try your security (and options) system again.
The only other big question that you will have to know: is this a factory installed security system or an aftermarket security system? This makes a difference in security systems, relays etc.
