this is SKIM failure. (or other 6 reasons for ASD relay drop out)

Accidentally reversed the battery cables on my 98 honda accord 4cyl. 2.3l. I already replaced the main 100 amp fuse, replaced the main relay, replaced battery , and had alternator tested and its good. it...

If your car came with the Prestige Alarm unit, there is a possibility that the alarm box got deprogrammed or burned, and left the anti-theft activated. Use the Valet Switch to deactivate the alarm permanently, and see if the car starts. For some reason unknown to me, it takes a couple of cycles of crank/ take the ignition switch off, crank again for the Valet Switch to work. In my 98 Accord, this micro-switch is installed in the left front kicker panel, but there is no guarantee that it will be in the same place in you accord, since it is a dealer installed option

The battery was left off of my 02 ranger and now the anti theift is not working..I only have one key How can I reset the anti theift with one key???????????

Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded) until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.)
This should reset the alarm, and reset the grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine.
At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way.
Just Repeat these steps to place it back to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it, and the lights may flash twice as well.
That should do it.

Anti-theft system will not allow car to start

Have you chaged the battery on the remote. And also do you have a valet button under the dash somewhere if you push it for about 15-30 sec. it should reset the alarm. if it fails you might need a whole new alarm system.

Trouble with alarm of Pontiac Grand Prix SE

I will assume your alarm system is factory installed, which makes it a passive system. This being said there has to be a "valet" switch for the alarm system. it will be one of two places, first check the obvious and look at the dash panel under the steering wheel, there might be a pushbutton kill switch there, or a rocker switch of sorts. If no luck there, the blinking status light that is on your dashboard might be the switch itself. Try "GENTLY" pushing it in. if it does push, the red light will start to double blink, this is normal. If neither of these solve it, call yoru local dealer and ask them where the switch is. Good Luck

Removing the battery cable is something the alarm companies no the theifs can do. Find the valet button, this along with a few steps that you can find with your alarm manual will reset the system.
