Why would the anti-theft alarm go off?


Factory alarms rarely false alert, maybe someone did tamper with the car and ran off before you saw him. The one thing that will often trip alarms is a bad battery in the car, have it tested. Your car may have an add-on alarm in which case anything goofy can happen. It's odd that you had to hit the panic button to shut the alarm off, but if it functions normally otherwise it's unlikely to need a new battery. Is it at all possible that you hit the panic button and that caused the alarm to sound? If it was in your purse or pocket maybe it got pressed in which case it might be normal for you to have to hit panic again to turn it off.

Replacing battery and alarm goes off


Aftermarket alarm system?? If so it could be anything with that alarm. If it's the factory security system, this is totally normal. When you disconnect the battery and reconnect it, the system resets and automatically "panics" because it saw the power failure. If it's the factory system, simply have the key fob handy to turn it off after you connect the battery. If you don't have a remote fob, just put the key in the driver's door and unlock it. This will override and shut off the system.

My 2001 vw jetta, i think i hit the panic button as i was turning the key to start the car...the alarm went off and hitting the unlock button does not shut it off (the alarm) i cant get the key out of the...


I think unrelated problems, rock steering wheel and try to remove key, perhaps put vehicle in park the drive a few times wouldn't hurt. Then I would disconnect the battery for a few minutes so the security system will reset itself and see if that solves problem.

How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run


Alarm Module Reset Procedure
NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.

2002 Honda Odyssey security alarm system


Make sure your hood is shut. I just got my 2002 Honda Odyssey back from the dealer today (90,000 mile check-up - I love my van and will drive it until it dies!) and when I went to lock the van with my remote transmitter, the lights didn't flash and the horn didn't sound. I open and closed all the doors and tailgate and I could hear that the doors were locked, but the security system wasn't working and that is why the lights didn't blink or the horn didn't sound. I walked up to the front of the van to check the hood to make sure it was closed (there isn't an indicator light for an open hood, only open doors) and the hood wasn't shut completely. Once I opened the hood and let it drop to securely shut, I hit the door lock button on the remote and everything worked like a charm! Hope this helps others in this predicament.
