On that year/make/model there is no "valet" switch to speak of, and the factory alarm system can not be disabled without 5 times as much work and wiring as you would put in to fix the current problem. There's a good possibility that you have something simple like a failed GEM module, but without a complete diagnostic check, throwing parts at the problem won't fix a thing. In order to bypass the alarm you would need to rewire the entire databus system and then reprogram the modules to correspond with the removal of the anti-theft system, if there even IS a program you could install to let the modules know there is no longer an anti theft system in it. My suggestion, get either a good local independant on it, or dealer.

How to turn on my alarm on Toyota celica 1997


There was not a factory installed alarm for this car, any "toyota" security system would have been instaled at the dealer or the regional distribution port depending on what region the car was originally sold from. Do you have a remote for the system? Also check for a red valet button on the dash that can be toggled on/off. The port systems are also known for toggle switches located on the driver kick panel or under the driver dash. If you don't have a remote and manually unlocking the car from closed driver door will not disable the system you will have to locate the toggle/valet switch.

If this is a real factory alarm, you can adjust the alarm settings by following the instructions in the owners manual. To get an owners manual, go to the Chevrolet Owners website and sign up (it's free). You'll need your VIN. http://www.gm.com/gmownercenter/chevrolet/

I had to change the battery. After replacing the new battery all systems work, but the car won't turn over and the factory alarm is blaring. How do I disable the factory alarm? I do not have the...


Hi,
If you have the Toyota factory alarm, there should be button under the driver's side dash to reset the alarm....Look for it 1st, then read below.

Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking, to the ON position.

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.

GL,
Td

Where is the valet switch for honda accord 2002 lx?


Hi,
Does the vehicle have an aftermarket alarm system? Is the valet switch for this what you are looking for? If so, it depends entirely on who installed it as where they have put it, although it's usually under the dash on the driver’s side. Some alarms have different sequences that you have to go through to put the alarm into valet mode; it's not usually just a switch that you flick. Best to pop into an alarm or stereo installer and see if they can spot it for you, or if the car is immobilized, find out what sort of alarm it is and call an installer for the info on the valet procedure.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Lost alarm remote and jeep wont start


Is this a factory alarm, or after market? If its a factory alarm you can disarm the sytem using the key, insert into the door and turn the key so the door unlocks, this will disable the alarm.

If it's an aftermarket installed by a stereo shop, there should be a valet switch under the dash or somewhere, put the key in the ignition, turn forward and flip the dip switch in the other direction. If not, then you will need to go under the dash, find the alarm box and pull the plug out.

Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima


Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Ok ,Is there red LED lite in the car for the alarm system? if it's an after market alarm there could be a bypass switch under the drivers panel that you could of hit accidently that would put the system into a valet mode . this switch would put the system into a door lock and unlock mode only. So look under the driver's dash or side kick panel for a switch or button, you would need the car on to switch it back
