How to turn alarm off?

My alarm started going off out of no where and now i cant start the car and everytime i try the alarm blares again. I do not have the master key at the this time,only the spare, is that part of the problem? Also i think it started because a tan wire coming out of the center consule was yanked? Could that be possible or is that jsut a coinicidence?

Hi
According to the said issue, there are two possibility reason.
1. Short circuit 2. Wire or technical problem in the alarm system 3. Some one would have locked the car with the master key.
Do one thing for the temporary unplug the fuse in the fuse box and after fixing the problem you can plug the fuse. Thank you

2000 sebring JXI car alarm won't shut off. Soon as I connect the battery it starts blaring, continues while the car is running. Only way to shut off is disconnect the battery. What can I do??


Try connecting the battery, while alarm is blaring, lock the door with the button on the inside of the door, shut the door, unlock with the key, then start. It worked on a friends durango.

Okay,heres the problem the battery is low and the alarm is going crazy without enough voltage but something to try is to connect the jumper cables and have all doors shut. leave the cables on for a few minutes, if the alarm starts to go off as soon as you connect cables then dont wait, take the key and go to drivers door and lock and unlook the door lock with the key this will shut down alarm system and then try to start the car, it should start up and let run for a while, also the computer may have lost its idle memory so this means you will need to hold the gas pedal a little to keep it running, after a minute you can slowly release it and let it idle, you will know if this needs to be done when you start the car and it dies out, you will then strat it and hold gas, just a little bit enough to keep the engine running, hope this helps, have a good day.

My Mercedes C-Class 1996 won't start up, the alarm is confused it thinks it's locked, every time i unlock it, the red light( locked) and green light(unlocked) flash at the same time constantly, if I open the car and try turn on the engine, the alarm starts blaring, I've turned it on before and drove it around but when i came to park it up it did not turn on again because of that problem.( The car hasn't been touched or used for a year before i got it going again)

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.

Hi, my name is Grace and I have a 1993 Acura Legend. Recently, my car's alarm system has been going off each time I open the door with the key or try to start it in the ignition. I'm unable to drive it...


I had the same problem Grace and even mechanics could not figure it out at first. I called 3 Acura dealers to find answers.

Mine began acting up when a door lock broke and when it broke, the alarm started going off out of the blue.

But.....I want you to know that the drainage of electrical that the alarm drained my battery. Jumpstarted battery and alarm would immediately start back up and drain it again. In the end, it fried my alternator. It was pretty crazy because the radio was going off and on by itself with the alarm blaring and no way to shut it off.

Answer is there is no way to remove the alarm system because it is all integrated in by the factory, Acura dealers told me. Your car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off like that, so keeps doing it. The fix was to insert my key into the driver or passenger door lock and turn the key back and forth 3X. That resets the alarm and stops the whole problem.
