Hi, assuming this is an aftermarket alarm, you might have him try to leave the ignition on and reconnect the battery. Some systems require this to prevent spikes from causing the alarm to trigger. If this is a factory system simply pressing unlock on the remote would disarm it. If trying the ignition on when reconnecting the battery does not stop the problem, take a look under the driver's side dash and try to find a pushbutton/flipswitch, this would be your valet switch. Leaving the key in the run position and pressing this switch should also disarm the system if it is an aftermarket alarm...

    That was going to be my second suggestion, you can take it to the dealership.....

    Thanks.

do you have a remote for it? if so hit the unlock button. if not, cycle the key in the door cylinder. the disarm switch is connected to the cylinder/latch so that should shut it off.

Horn on my sienna goes off while replacing the battery


Hook up cables and lock all doors,first try unlocking drivers door with key. If that does not workstart over and then try unlocking trunk/hatch with key. This usually will work, I highly sugest you use original key if possible.

Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,

Possibly battery-related problem with '02 Mazda Protege


It sounds like the car's security system is going off. Is there a key fob to lock/unlock doors and turn on alarm? If there is, connect battery, and immediately press alarm/unlock button to turn alarm off.
I have a truck with an aftermarket alarm system installed by the previous owner, my battery died, and when I hooked up a new one the alarm went off, and it took a while before I hit the key fob button, but it stopped it. Let me know if this works for u.
