The alarm system on my 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GL keeps turning on by itself


You must have the dealer keep the car until this fault occurs and then scan the security system to see what is causing the triggering of the security system. It is very possible that the drivers door ajar switch or latch switch is defective and it triggers a false tampering signal.

How to set & cancel theft deterrent system or how to set & cancel security...


Theft deterrent system (on some models)

Theft deterrent system is designed to deter vehicle theft. The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn when it detects abnormalities such as follows:

• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
• The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn if someone attempts to damage or break into your car.

Setting the system

You can set the system with or without the impact sensor function. For details, see "Canceling the impact sensor" below.

1. Turn the ignition key to "LOCK" and remove it.
2. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle
3. Push the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once. At this time, the turn signal lights flashes once and the security indicator light comes on.

The system is set after 30 seconds. At this time, the security indicator light start flashing slowly.

Once the system is set, you cannot start the engine until you cancel the system.

The system will not be set in the following cases.

• When any of the door is open; security horn sounds for 1 second, close the door and set the system again.
• When the hood is open; close the hood securely.

Canceling the Impact Sensor

The impact sensor can be cancelled to prevent false alarms from being triggered incase of the following conditions:

• When parked in the noisy area
• The vehicle body or glass is subjected to a strong impact from the (such as in highly pressurized car wash).
• When transporting by a car carrier or ferry.

To cancel the impact sensor;

1. Lock the door by pushing the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once, and turn signal light flash once
2. Then push the lock (set) switch twice within 5 seconds. At this time, the turn signal flash 5 times to indicate the impact sensor function is disable.

The impact sensor is deactivated as long as the system remained armed.

Canceling the system

The system will be cancelled by the following two ways:

• Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

When the system is set

Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

• Unlocking any door without using wireless control
• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.
• The system control assembly is disconnected and then reconnected
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

Reactivating the alarm;

Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

Stopping the Alarm

The alarm will be stopped by the following two ways;

• Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

Testing the system

1. Set the system
2. Insert a wireless remote control key into the key hole on the driver's door handle, and unlock the door.
3. Open the door, and an alarm will sound.
4. Stop the alarm by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.
5. Repeat this operation for the front passenger's door.

Good luck.

1992 toyota celica key wont turn and alarm system going off


The steering lock may be binding the ignition lock cyl preventing the key from turning or the key may be worn out. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while wiggling and turning the ignition key. To get the alarm to turn off without starting the car try locking and unlocking the vehicle from the passenger side door. There is a micro switch on the drivers side door lock cyl that may be bad and preventing the alarm from dis arming. This is all providing it is a toyota factory alarm sys.

Aplique alarm 6 14 keeps coming on randomly


The only alarm system I've had is my 12ga with deer slugs.

It shouldn't be too hard to either turn it off, or find the problem power supply. I am thinking the power to the house may have blinked off and on at some point, and the logic of the alarm is freaking out as a result.

Is there a backup battery for the alarm system? If not you could try turning off a circuit breaker at a time until you diagnose which one is powering the alarm system. If you find one that turns the alarm pad off. Leave it off for a few minutes and turn the breaker back on to see if it will reset itself. If the alarm has a battery backup try to remove it and again turn off the circuit breaker. Also search your book for resetting the alarm system.

My Toad alarm will not recognize both of my Fobs for the system. I don't want to open my car manually because i have no way of knowing if the alarm will turn off when its going off with my fob and can't...


I don't see where you have any choice but to unlock the doors with your key. If your fobs have good batteries, then the problem is with the alarm system, which can't be accessed until you unlock the doors. I'm not sure what the procedure is on your particular alarm, but with most alarms, you disarm the system by first turning the key in the door lock to the left and then to the right to unlock the door. Turning the key to the left first, disarms the system. Some aftermarket alarms will have a button hidden under the driver side dash that will disarm the alarm.

1990 lexus ls 400 security system went off now vehicle will not start. Keys open door turn alarm off but starter will not engage. What can I do?


Your alarm is keep your system from starting. When the alarm system fails, you have 1 of two choices, if it is a after market alarm then just disconnect the alarm, if it is a manufacture alarm then you will need to take it to a company to have then replace the alarm or disconnect it. Doing so yourself you can hurt your vehicle more then help it

The remote is broken.


Unlocking the driver door with the key shuts off the alarm system if it is a factory alarm system.
If the alarm system is aftermarket you may have to remove it . Good luck.

Can't turn off built-in alarm


There should be a toggle switch that was installed with the alarm system, may be down by your left leg when sitting in the drivers seat. With the key in the ignition and turned to "on", flip the toggle switch twice to turn off the alarm.

I hope you can help me!!!!!!


It sounds as though you are having a security (alarm) system issue. Does this vehicle have an aftermarket alarm installed? If you recently bought this car, it might have one that you don't even know about. Try locking and unlocking both front doors with the key. If the vehicle has a factory alarm system, this is the usual way to deactivate it. If that does not work, look up behind the dash on the driver's side. An aftermarket alarm system is usually pretty easy to spot as it'll have a bunch of wires connected to it that are usually wrapped in black tape and you can tell it's not factory installed. If this is the case, there will be a valet switch somewhere in the vicinity of the driver's kick panel. To turn the alarm off, turn the ignition switch to the on position and press the valet switch. This should turn the alarm off.
