Car was starting and running fine, then suddenly lost all electrical, no crank no start and the horn keeps honking. I changed out the ignition module and the DIM/body control module


That sounds like a burglar alarm, immobiliser issue if the horn goes off. Did you pull a wire when you were under the hood?

The items you swapped out have no bearing on the problem you have, except for possibly the fuses. Did you check what those blown fuses protect?

Antitheft system keep goes on I can't start vehicle


Use the remote to deactivate alarm or use key in the door lock to unlock the door. The problem you had is when you lock the door and the alarm activates it must see a disarm signal or else it thinks someone broke the window and used the switch to open the door.

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

Remote goes off continueouslly and unless battery cable remove won't stop. Also, vechicle won't start.


Some Jeep models have the ability to reset the alarm by following this procedure. Connect the battery cables and allow the antitheft alarm to trigger (usually horn honking and lights flashing). Use your ignition key to lock, unlock, lock and unlock the passenger front door. This should reset the system to be used normally. If your key fob is the problem, remove batteries to stop alarm trigger and have dealership test and/or replace fob. Hope this helps.

THE HORN NO LONGER WORKS WHEN YOU HIT THE AIR BAG.THE HORN USED TO WORK TO EASLY WHEN YOU JUST LIGTHLY TOUCHED THE AIR BAG THEN THE HORN WOULD SOUND WHEN YOU TURNED THE WHEEL MY FATHER PUNCHED THE AIR BAG...


I think he may have just bent the connection that activates the horn. Does it honk when you turn the wheel one way or the other? Try that and let me know what the out come is.
