    I spoke with the fellow I bought the jeep from, electrical problems of all sorts. At any rate the solution for this problem, until I can resolve the electrical issues I'm having was to unlock the jeep from the passenger side door. As soon as I turned the key in the passenger side door the lights went out, I turned on the ignition and the engines ran just fine. I took it for a spin around the block and all is well. Thank you for your interest and assistance in my little ordeal. Jeep lovers rocks!

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.

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.

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

How do I permanently disable a DEI Automate car alarm on our 1999 Acura Integra.


Just remove it. It shouldn't be too hard, take all the parts and harness out, reconnect any cut wires and wrap any exposed wires with electrical tape.

How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

I need to know how to disable the alarm system, it goes off every time i open the door.


Take the dash and glove box off. Under where the glove box is there are two boxes, unplug the one farthest to the left. This completley disables the security alarm.
