Antitheft system keep goes on so i can't start my vehicle


It is telling me to lock the doors with the key, this will arm the system, then you should be able to unlock the doors after about 3 seconds and this should disarm the system. Also, if it doesn''t try unlocking the passenger side door or the back glass with the key. Let me know you must wait at least 3 seconds before unlocking back glass or passenger door to disarm system once one door is unlocked without setting off alarm it is disabled. hope this helps

Use the remote to deactivate alarm or use key in the door lock to unlock the door. The problem you had is when you lock the door and the alarm activates it must see a disarm signal or else it thinks someone broke the window and used the switch to open the door.

Key goes in the driver's lock and only opens the driver's door. Car alarm goes off when door is opened and will not start. Have tried multiple times. Can you help?


Does it have remote central locking. If it does then it needs to be opened with the remote control. By opening the door with the key is the same as picking the lock to the alarm system so it put's on the alarm and imobilise's the car and actavates the alarm. Hope this help's Cheer's

'95 Nissan Maxima-Alarm goes off-then windows & doors won't work


Open the drivers door panel and locate the inside lock cylinder, there is an alarm switch that wrap around it with an electrical wire came out, it might also have another one on the passenger side in some other model . What it does is arm and disarm the alarm when you use the mechanical key and in some other model, it also lower the window when you disarm. The switch might pop out of place or deteriorated due to age. Good luck all.

Help to disconnect my alarm


it sounds to me like you dont have a key less entry remote on the vehicle, I would check the small switch located behind the driver door lock tumbler (were the key goes in) and to do this
you need to remove the door panel, this switch knows when you
insert the key into the door and turn it to disable alarm, some times they break off - when the alarm goes off try unlocking the
vehicle on the passenger door.
