Try unlocking and locking each door with the key to reset the security system..call the dealer and ask what the procedure to do so is. It usually involves locking or unlocking doors with the keys.
I had a vehicle once that the same thing happened to and I had to lock the driver door, then unlock and re lock with the key to reset it

I removed the radio on my 99 c20 Mercedes now it wont start


Radio removal is not likely the cause.Check fuses, especially for alarm and door locks. Make sure door locks work (door locks and alarm are controlled by the same part). Make sure your battery isn't weak. Does the key turn? does the starter engage?

Most all aftermarket radios have their own fuse next to the wiring harness plug. Depending on the brand, it may only take a few minutes to pull the radio out of it's sleeve to check for the fuse. Usually, you can pop off the trim ring to see what you are working with.

I put a new battery in my 1998 toyota camry and when i opened the door the alarm went off and i tryed locking and unlocking the door and trunk but it still wont go off and the car wont crank


That happen to all the time when I work with cars that have an aftermarket alarm.
First; disconnect the battery again and locate the override switch by the steering column lower panel, got to be there somewhere.

Now reconnect the battery, press that switch and turn the key on. that little procedure would reset the aftermarket alarm.

Okay you may want to check to see if the sensor on door lock cylinder hasn't fallen off from the lock itself. Pull of the door panels and check the wires at the door lock cylinder. Hope this helps.

1998 cad alarm no start


Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.
