My 97 Nissan Quest won't start after alarm went off


Sounds like the 'Anti-Theft' vehicle immobilizer system has been engaged. If you have handy access to your Vehicle Manual, check there first to vehicle specific hints and tricks.

Alarm systems are supposed to 're-arm' themselves after an incident triggering an alarm. This may take a few minutes during which time it ignores the key fob transmissions. If you can open the door but the engine won't start with the key or start button, try resetting the alarm with the key in on the "ON" or "ACC" position and using your fob button. If the alarm starts again, silence it with the fob button again.
OR
(Assuming your battery is in good condition and the gear selector is in PARK or NEUTRAL) If you have access to the hood release, disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal for 10 minutes to force a reset of all electrical functions upon reconnection. Make sure you don't touch the cable to any other part by slipping an old sock or mitt over it for safekeeping. (You might lose your radio and climate control presets but they can be reset easily once the main problem is bypassed.) Test the DOOR LOCK/UNLOCK button to verify that power has been temporarily disabled to the entire vehicle. After the wait, reconnect the power cable securely and try to start the vehicle.

Anti-theft alarm goes off randomly, radio and dashlights work but car will not start


Your problem is your BCM or known as body control module is looping into theft mode and in return not getting power to the starter so I'd check with ford on a BCM flash to factory default settings hope this helps you

You should have disconnected the battery and fully charged it before starting the car.
The low voltage may have damaged some of the electronic components in the alarm system.
Charge the battery fully, then reconnect it and see if that helps.

Sounds like you have a key without the chip in it. Replacement keys without the chip will only unlock the doors and will activate the theft alarm when you start the vehicle.

98 golf anti theft problem


Put the key in the driver door lock (or the trunk lock if you don't trust the driver's door- quite often on a vehicle of this age the wires break in the door and it won't electrically de-activate the alarm due to the broken wires)
Disconnect the battery.
Turn the key to the unlock position (toward the front of the car if using the driver or passenger doors) and release it- it will go back to centered, but will retain slack in the forward direction
Then reconnect the battery. You may get one beep out of the alarm horn. If it beeps continually, turn the key to unlock again.
As long as the alarm is de-activated it will not prevent the car from starting. If you are still having a problem it is not alarm related.

Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help
