Question about 1996 Dodge Viper

1 Answer

Viper Alarm problem

I need help. I have a 1993 Viper and every time the battery gets low it goes into alarm mode. My key fob does not want to disarm it. Is there anyway to by pass this alarm? I seem to have it working again by disconnecting the power at the battery and then connecting it again. As long as the battery has alot of power in it, I don't seem to have a problem. But if I was working on the car with the door open or had the stereo on too long it will drain the battery down and put it into alarm mode. Is there any way to get ride of this stupid alarm for good? Please email me at keithbakerjones@shaw.ca

Thank you.

    The battery is low and it activated the factory alarm. I can not start the car anymore as my fob does not disarm the alarm. Any advise is highly appreciated.

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD Crew Cab - Alaram goes off when opening doors even after using key to open.

I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd with an alarm and have the same problem. No big deal for me though as long as I have the remote. You can shut off the alarm by pushing the redlight that blinks on your console. That is usually what I do.

SOURCE: Won't start (again); has new alternator & new battery

what it sounds like is that you may have a loose ground somewhere,most likely a ground strap from the engine block to the frame to the battery. chances are that because of the loose ground your altenator maybe charginging properly but the looose ground the current is not going to the battery so as you are driving the battery is being discharged. if this doesn't solve the problem then i suspect that your alarm is the problem. it is hardwired to the positve side of the of the system and is drawing your battery down. please rate the solution...thanks

SOURCE: alarm sounded, car won't start

The same thing happened to me. After many hours of talking with dodge dealers, I found that you can do the following: 1) reconnect the battery; 2) Go to front passenger door and lock and unlock manually 3 times. This should turn the alarm off.

How do you turn off an alarm for a 2005 Saturn Ion


Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the CTD armed mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the armed mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in arm pending mode, SECURITY indicator flashing and doors open, perform 1 of the following:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system when activated, alarming mode.


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.

I have a 99.5 tdi jetta a night ago I locked my car using my key fob which armed the system I recently went to unlock my car to disarm the system but my key fob did not work so the alarm is still armed I...


What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

When i try to start me 2008 sonata the alarm goes off and the engine will not turn over. what can i do?


Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key.
Solution #1
Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again.
Solution #2
Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

I have a 1993 xj6 and it is stuck in ignition kill mode


Is this a factory installed Alarm or After market? If it is Factory installed is is actually part of the ECM programming. If it is after market, there is most likely an separate alarm horn mounted on your Firewall or wheel well, Locate that and trace the wires back until you find the in-line fuse and pull it. That should disable the alarm and kill switch. Now, if it is a factory Alarm and part of the ECM the only fix I can think of would be to replace the ECM. I don't think Jag had an Alarm as an option in 1993 but it is remotely possible. The only other places to look for the Alarm control module are under the Steering wheel Dash area, Behind the Glove Compartment on the passenger side or in the trunk.

Alarm problems


You probably need to replace the battery in the key fob. Even if the fob has a little red light that comes on, the battery could be low enough to not disarm your alarm. That little red light only needs a minimal amount of battery power to light up. Try a Radio Shack store and they will most likely hand you a screwdriver to pry off the back or remove the screw. Once it is open they should have the battery you need. Should be about 6 bucks +/- depending on your location.

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
