    The alarm is factory. The car is Petrol. There is no remote, to turn off the alarm you unlock the driver door.

    So the problem, in a nutshell is:

    I need to learn where the kill switch is so I can deactivate or bypass it. We put in a new battery and now there is no power going to the car. And it all relates to this darn alarm.

    Thank you.

    Okay, that went over my head. So I will read up on what you mean......and I will let you know if it worked. I'm extremely frustrated because I can't find a manual that was written for this particual car. I tried the Haynes website but as I sated above there isn't one.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Hi there!

    Is it a factory fitted alarm or an aftermarket one?

    Is the car Petrol or Diesel?

    Is an immobiliser fitted, or just the alarm? If just the alarm,do you have the remote?

    I will do what I can from here...

Me again. Faulty forum entered me as guest - issue still unresolved.

Back to your problem.

Someone is producing a Cd of a service manual - Clicky here

However, information on alarm systems may not be covered.

With everything connected and ignition switched on, check the supply area around the ignition switch. If there is power there, the alarm interrupts the supply after the ignition switch.

Next with ignition on, check supply at the coil input. If there is no supply there, route cable from ignition switched live to coil supply +ve. All other circuits should get this bridged supply and work normally.

Remove any sounder.

If this doesn not work, let me know and I'll go into more detail.

Hope this helps.

the alarm is the fault refer to your alarm manual to disable it, if you don't know about this unit it is best to seek help from someone qualified and available to look at it for you, it seems as if your alarm is set, most alarms have a starter disable function and the alarm going off is an indication that it is set.

I have a 1994 toyota camery and it has an alarm system the kids left light oh and killed battery so we charged it now alarm is going off we dont have remote for alarm and now we cant start car. how do we...

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you. If you have a factory alarm system (not one that was added from a non-Toyota alarm manufacturer), the way to disable the alarm is to insert the key into the ignition, cycle the key from lock to on (not to the start position) five times. Try that and see if that fixes your problem. Remember, this trick will not work if you do not have a Toyota system installed.

2002 Mazda MPV Alarm problems

I had the same problem on my moms Mazda MPV. The solution is simple... Go on the passenger side; turn the key clockwise then turn it counter clockwise. That should turn off the alarm. What you can do to get some silence is to just remove the appropriate fuse, you will find the alarm will also be dissabled but the emergency lights will still flash, indicating that you are not out of the woods
