    Thanks, but how do I now disconnect the system and still keep the door locked? I checked my manual and there is nothing there about disconnecting it. Even when I disarm it, and lock the car, when I open a door with a key...it still sets off the shrieking alarm.

Have you tried disconnecting the alarm horn ground wire. It will only quiet the alarm horn and every thing else will still work.

The security anti theft electronic module is very sensitive so it could be the reason. I would disconnect the sounding alarm to keep it quite until the car goes in for repairs

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

If it affects no other systems,try pulling the fuse to it..but only if it isnt also the fuse for say,the steering wheel lock...etc..good luck..Beyond that,suspect a short circuit in the system

The theft alarm goes off at anytime on our kia spectra 2008 - can it be disabled?


Hello, sounds like you have a problem with needing to replace a small rubber hood pad for your alarm button switch that is mounted near the right front corner(passenger side) on the underside of the hood which makes contact with the alarm switch button that is mounted on the right front fender just behind the headlamp housing. Check with your local Kia dealer or even a Hyundai dealer to see if they have a TSB (Technical Safety Bulletin) to have this small rubber pad replaced,it is an updated hood pad that improves better contact with the alarm button to keep the alarm system from going off at random. Since your car is a Spectra,it will be the same as a Hyundai Elantra. The new part number for the rubber hood pad is: 92736-3A000 . You can temporarily disable the alarm system by going to your fuse and relay center just behind the battery and removing the "horn" relay, or unplug the connector at the at alarm switch mounted on the right inner fender well. Note: Your alarm switch and contact pad my also be mounted on the left side as well if they are not on the right side. Hope this helps solve your issue..

Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode


anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
  • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
  • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
  • hood switch
  • keyless entry remote transmitter
  • deck lid ajar switch
NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
The keyless entry remote transmitters :
  • Are programmable.
  • Must be set at the same time.
  • House four buttons.
  • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
Programming
Refer to Section 501-14B.
Inputs and Outputs
The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
  • Hood switch.
  • Deck lid ajar switch.
  • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
  • Door courtesy input.
The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
  • Power door unlock relay.
  • Power door lock relay.
  • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
  • Park lamps relay.
  • HORN relay.
  • Dome lamp.
  • THEFT indicator.
  • Deck lid release.
Arming
The anti-theft system can be armed if:
  • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
  • The panic alarm is off.
  • All doors are closed.
NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
Disarming
NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
Untriggered System
NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
Triggered System
NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
  • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
  • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

Car doesn't chirp when I lock it


In order for the ANTI-THEFT alarm to ACTIVATE, all doors, hood & trunk switches must be OPEN circuit (this means closed). Most often the problem is caused by the Hood Switch not closing all the way (meaning it is still grounded - not OPEN). Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). This way you will find out which parts, if any, you need to fix it - perhaps fix it yourself.

Theft alarm system


Check the alarm hood switch on the passenger side. Was the car in a accident ever? There should be a little rubber stopper that contacts the switch when the hood is closed. Either the rubber piece (attatched to the underside of the hood) is missing or the rubber is not contacting the switch.
