So you have a hand held remote for your cars alarm system? If you do replace the batteries in it if you dont and you had one but lost it replace it and see if it solves your troubles.

The alarm brain should not be the easy to locate if stock. Put everything as it was. The alarm brain, control, module or whatever any one wants to call it is most likely behind and under the radio possibly on the floor but in that area. That is if it is OEM if not then it should have been installed under the instrument cluster. I should be a small box probably held with zip-ties and it should have all the information, manufacturer, model and wire functions on the brain. If you think he found the right thing then have him look for the red wire that connects to it. It should have a 15amp fuse on the cable. If its taken out this will disable the alarm. What ever he found should say Security, Alarm or something like that. Not door control or anything other.

SOURCE: alarm wont let me start the car

you need the remote control of the alarm to turn the alarm off.

you may need to change the battery of the remote in case it would no longer control the alarm or if you have a valet switch to turn off the alarm, then use it.

the immobilizer is working that is why you can not start the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,

One word:

Dealer.

Next time just disconnect the battery until you get it towed as this is a warranty item. I'll bet some wondered if this was a prank question like I did, right?

Jumpstarting cars with electronic ignition is not a good idea. Your car is also fitted with an immobilizer, hence the alarm going off. Get someone to drive you to a place that sells suitable batteries, and fit the new one. You should be fine.

Try "cycling the key in the passenger door lock. Turn it all the way to the right and all the way to the left.

Our saab was driving fine, we parked and went shopping after an hour came out and it wont start. Replaced the battery and it still wont start. It is a manual so we are able to pop the clutch and it...


Sounds like an immobilizer/alarm issue...only way to properly diagnose is with a Saab factory scan tool...unfortunately..
Try another key if you have one....also lock and unlock the vehicle a few times with the key fob...or door key to insure the alarm/immobilizer has been turned off.

Hope this helps!

Car alarm going off after replace positive cable


If you do not have the remote control for the alarm (which can sometimes be purchased on ebay) You will have to uninstall the alarm.
The alarm is wired between the ignition coil wire coming from the ignition switch if the car is turning over and just wont start.
This can be complicated because of the amount of wiring, You have to cut the alarm wires out 1 at a time and match the cars wires back together.
I just did this for someone on a toyota recently and you really have to pay attention or put a peice of tape on each wire writing the color for example(white wire with rd stripe or white wire with red stripe ect.)
I hope this helps you,
Please rate me if this was helpful,
