U most likely have a problem with the transponder that tells the computer you have inserted the correct key into the ignition, at this point the only thing u can do is have the dealer hook up a special electronic scanner to see exactly what is going on with the system, there is no bypass of the system, the engine control computer has programming that can't be bypassed.

Hi! Please replace the battery of the remote. This happens when the battery of the alarm remote is faulty. You will have to disarm this using a remote so that when you start the truck it wont trigger. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    Oh I see.. thanks for the clarification... Try to lean the back of your head to the floor and look upward. You should see a box underneath the dash on the driver's side. That'll be the security system. Unplug it and you'll be good.

How do you stop the alarm if the battery is dead.


The battery cannot be dead if the alarm is going off. however it might be to low to start the car and cause this situation. I would use the alarm remote to reset the alarm or un-hook the ground cable on the battery. Or charge the battery.

Cant get the security alarm to disable 98 durango


The FACTORY ALARM DISARM WIRE IS
lt. green/orange '-', Located at a the
black plug in the drivers kick panel.

Once Located, splice into this wire with
a simular guage wire, and put it to
a solid chassis ground. This terminates
the alarm functions entirely.

If you want to use the alarm again all you do is remove the spliced wire
un hook your battery let it sit over night and hook it back up

My 2001 Mercury sable will not start and when I tried to jump start still wont start but alarm goes off and windshield wipers go haywire could it be the starter?


It could be the starter, but i would start with having your battery load tested. Sounds like that is the problem. I hope this helps.

Try closing the doors then hook up jumper cables, let it sit for a couple of minutes with cables hooked up and other vehicle running. Then try to use key to turn off alarm before opening door. Then try to start it.

THE ALARM AND HAVE TO CHARGE THE BATTERY.I THINK THE ALARM SYSTEM IS DRAIN THE BATTERY


Alarm system teake up no more power than the memory on your radio.....un less it is triggered alot. Pul the negative off your battery and connect a simple 12v tyest light between the negative and the battery. The light should fade iout. If it stays on you have a short in the car. Pull fuses that are always on till the light goes out. Might be your alternator. Goal is to get the light to go out.

The battery for the keyless entry keychain can be replaced at the jewelry counter at your local department store or a real jewelry shop. It is not generally too expensive and it will continue to
operate your vehicle's locks and alarms even if it has been dead for some time.

Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.
