    Factory alarm or aftermarket?

    When you change the battery the alarm locks you out, that is what after market alarms do, if you don't have the instructions for that alarm, see if you can figure out who made it and go to thier web site for help, or try to get their tech line phone number, good luck with this. The other suggestion is pull out the alarm and restore the original factory wiring, and this I think is the best solution based on 30 years of experience!

I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring How can I


If you can find out how to put it in valet mode, that would at least tell you if its the alarm or something else. Also, when my battery died, I had to put the key in the ignition and turn it to on before connecting new or recharged battery back in.

Car alarm preventing car from starting


Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

HELP please!! My daughter has a 96 sebring convertible and today she put her key in the door to unlock it and the alarm started going off. It wont stop, have disconnected the positive and negative battery...


Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey
