If its the manufacturers alarm, I don't think you can otherwise criminals could also...if its an after market one sometimes there is an override button (Tiny red) one down in the drivers foot well somewhere.

1997 crown Victoria. viper alarm kill switch has turned all power to car. How do I reset

there is no override. Otherwise it would defeat the point of an immobilizer. I would find out why the alarm went off and deal with the rot cause rather than trying to bypass something made to be un-bypassable.

You may be able to reset the alarm by unplugging the battery from the car for a minute or 2 but I would start with the alarm manual to be safe. Possibly even remote the alarm and put the wiring back to stock.

My car won't start due to my alarm went off when I stuck my key in the door

You have to disarm the alarm first. The alarm has an immobilizer that will prevent the car from running if the alarm has been tripped. Usually there is an override button under the dash somewhere. The key usually has to be in the ignition and turned on while holding the button. Otherwise, unlocking it with the FOB (key-less remote) will usually reset it too.

Anti theft system

(we can't do wiring hacks here, only stock, not stock?good luck)

NOCODEs ?you mean DTC'S? but... that not all there is...
use a real scan tool, not a near useless code reader.
do this last after fuses and the dash lamp checks for IMMO?
is the IMMO tripping?
A REAL $9 Scan tool:
you crank and see RPM at zero the CKP is dead.
you crank 5 seconds, see p0340 or 355 or the like..., after releasing key.;
btw all cars EFI cut fuel for p0340 or any code related to spark.
including zero RPM

VAT? veh, alarm ? something?
Lost the free book?
did you read the operator guide for 2007, and read the page on
the optional immobilizer and the lamp signals stated there.
it tells you exactly what the , lamps do in (alarm or IMMO , which IMMO does CUT FUEL. it's all there. you lost the guide?
Key code errors? on dash? the key lamp does show theses facts.

BELOW page 77 quotes in your glove box manual.
The immobilizer system protects
your vehicle from theft. If an
improperly-coded key (or other
device) is used, the engine's fuel
system is disabled

When you turn the ignition switch to
the ON (II) position, the immobilizer
system indicator should come on for
a few seconds, then go off. If the
indicator starts to blink, it means the
system does not recognize the
coding of the key. Turn the ignition
switch to the LOCK (0) position,
remove the key, reinsert it, and turn
the ignition switch to the ON (II)
position again.
The system may not recognize your
key's coding if another immobilizer
key or other metal object {HACKS} (i.e. key
fob) is near the ignition switch when
you insert the key

If the system repeatedly does not
recognize the coding of your key,
contact your dealer.
Do not attempt to alter {HACK} this system
or add other devices to it. Electrical
problems could result that may make
your vehicle undrivable
end quotes

The sport model is different. page 66.

its not the security system because it goes in to alarm
if armed, if anyone (say hiding in car) was to tune the key switch to start car. (page130) RTM.
it also warns not to hack this system. (alarm)

How to stop a panic alarm

There are thousands of alarm types out there, the only real way to know for a specific alarm is to look into the owners manual that came with the alarm system.


Some also shut off when the key is put into the ignition and turned on.

On some really secure type model alarms, you may have to find & press the reset button for 5 seconds, or press the button and insert the key. (these switches are sometimes hidden since they can override the alarm)

If it's an aftermarket alarm only type system, you can always find the main power supply to the system, or the fuse and disable it.

If it's a factory system, or one installed to immobilize the ignition/fuel system, then pulling fuses isn't an option as it will disable your ignition on the vehicle.

Most do go off in about 1 minute if left undisturbed, then rearm.

Good luck!

Need to override factory keyless entry wont start

First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

  • Everytime when you had a new key you must programm all available ignition car keys before trying to start the engine with this new key !!!


    This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

    From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

    The remote got smashed on a 1993 jeep and the alarm system is on. how do i disarm it. the vehicle will not start, and lights are flashing. the vehicle is unoperable.

    Is there a small key on your keys? or do you have it maybe in the book pack that came with the car? all are different but sometimes you will get a small disarm key that overrides the alarm

    if it has an immobilizer with transponder then you may have to buy a replacement from the dealer, not cheap either.

    Hope that helps

    Alarm is armed, and I dont have a remote.I need to manually dissarm the alarm or my car will not start

    Open the door, the alarm will sound , go under your dash, normally installation techs will install a kill switch or alarm override button either in the drivers side kick panel to the left of were your left foot rests or inside the fuse box panel, under the steering column or by the center column somewhere but most likely the drivers kick is the spot. So open the door and find the kill switch or override button and put the key in the ignition turn it to the on position without cranking and press or toggle the switch after you turn the key, this should override the alarm and let you start the vehicle, otherwise you have to remove the alarm main fuse from the brain and rewire your starter kill to factory so that you can start your vehicle normally again until an alarm tech corrects the alarm wiring.

    Good luck my friend, hope it is helpful.

    Bmw e36 immobilised, iginition lights come on, but the starter wont turn over. how do i start the car to get it to a garage, i dont wont to pay the £70 for recovery truck

    BMW E36 immobilizer Hope the following will help. Had similar problems. The transmitter buttons on keys is for central locking and alarm. Inside the key at the front there is a small electronic/magnetic chip that looks like a block. About 8mm long, 2mm deep and 4mm wide, not connected to any pc board. This is the immobilizer. It must match the receiver that is located behind the ignition switch. If it is loose and too far away from the receiver it won?t deactivate it. If you made a spare key it will switch on electrics but won?t start the car. If you don?t have an immobilizer chip any alarm shop will be able to program a new chip or install a new pair for your keys. There is a way to disable the immobilizer but rather have it fix and protect your car. I read an article somewhere (perhaps bmw e36 blog) of people removing this immobilizer. Good luck

    Ignition: when switch on the key model W 202 1996


    Is your 2nd key fob giving you the same problem?

    Have you change the battery inside the key fob?

    Check the mirror for alarm/immobilize indicator.

    If you using a dead key fob then alarm system will immobilize the ignition system.
