Anti theft alarm for my 86 944 turbo

Hello, I purchased an 86 944 turbo as a project and having fun with it. It came with a stock anti theft alarm system. The problem I'm having with it is that even with the alarm turned off, it sometimes goes off as I'm driving, lol It feels like I'm stealing my own car sometimes and the other times it's just embarrasing, lol. Could you help me figure it out, please.

Thanks,

SOURCE: Does anyone have Anti Theft code for 1996 850 Turbo? Not 1225.

you need an 'anti-theft' code to reactivate the radio. whenever the electrical power to the radio is interrupted the system "thinks" that the radio has been stolen and it goes into anti-theft mode.

if you purchased the car new, then you might find a white card about the size of a credit card with the owners manual or papers you received when you bought it. that card would have the anti-theft code on it.

if you can't find the card, call the dealer you bought it from. they may have the code on file from when they sold the car. however, most dealers only keep records for 7 years and often in remote storage locations so don't count on them having the code.

if you don't have the card, look inside the glove box for a white label about 1" long and 1/2" high. It may have two rows of numbers or just one. If it has two rows, the 5 digit number on the top is your anti-theft code. if it has one row of numbers about 9 charactors long, it is the serial number for the radio.

if you have only the serial number for the radio, you can call any Acura dealer, give it to them and ask them to look up the radio code on their Acura system. each radio code is specific to the serial number of the radio; there is no 'universal' code.

if you can't find the tag in the glove box, look under the rear trunk lid. if the car has an ashtray, pull it out and look at the backside or underside of the ashtray. the dealers put the tags in a variety of places when they did the initial inspection on the car.

if you can't find the tags, then try this. with the key in the igntion switch and the key ON but the rado turned OFF, hold in the station select buttons number 1 & 6 with your right hand. then, while holding those buttons in, turn the radio ON with your other hand. You should see a series of 5 charactors on the display starting with the letter U and followed by 4 numbers. write them down. then the display will change to a second set of 5 charactors starting with the letter L and 4 numbers. write them down. then call the honda dealer and give them those numbers--those numbers are the serial number of the radio.

if all else fails, the radio will have to be removed to get the serial number off of the manufacturer plate on the back of the radio. dealerships will not charge to retrieve the code for you but will charge to remove the radio.

hope that gives you some direction. I think you'll be able to get the radio activated again. one note--you have 3 shots to enter the code correctly or you'll get an error message. if you get that, disconnect the negative battery cable and leave it off for 3 minutes to clear the error mode. then reconnect the cable and you can then enter the code.

SOURCE: I don't have anti theft lug nut wrench for my porsche 911

Ok, here's what I would do, and I've done a few ;-) First of all I have to ask, sorry; beg and plead with the previous owner to have another look, go to the dealer and see if they have a way of getting a code or a box in the shop full of random keys you can try (I have this at my shop), scour the car for every nook and cranny...everywhere, some people hide them.

If all of this fails, you need to go to Sears or any auto / tool store that sells sockets individually. Buy a handful of 1/2 inch drive 12 point sockets, you can return the ones you don't need. You want one that almost slides onto that keyed head of the wheel bolt, but won't. You will also need a BFH (big frickin hammer), a small sledge works well, a 6"-1/2" drive extension, a 1/2" johnson bar as well, not a ratchet handle, but a bar with a pivoting 1/2 stub on the end.
The first step, with the car on the ground, take the proper wheel wrench and TIGHTEN all the non-locking wheels bolts another 1/4 turn, or as much as you reasonbly can. The idea here is to take some of the tension off the one you are about to remove.
Now, put the socket that doesn't quite fit, on the 6" extension and put that on the johnson bar. Place this on the keyed socket as if you are going to remove it. Get a good position so that the johnson bar has some room to travel counter clockwise toward the ground. If possible, a good johnson bar will allow you to pivot it back toward the wheel, you want to keep the torque center-line inline with the wheel bolt if you know what I mean.
Now get a helper, one that has used a hammer before. Have him hold the 6" extension with one fist, and beat on the end of the johnson bar with the BFH, driving the extension and socket toward the wheel bolt. As he is striking it, you are supporting the bar and ever so slowly trying to undo the wheel bolt.
The combined effect of the over-tightened wheel bolts and the shock to the keyed bolt, while you drive the splines of the 12 point socket into the key's slots, will allow you to feel it release in increments as your helper hits the end of the johnson bar and extension.
I hope I explained this well enough, it has worked many times for me and after you have done the first one, the others go fairly well. I should probably make a youtube vid for fun.
Let me know how it works out.

SOURCE: I don't have a anti-theft lug wrench for my znx rims

Your going to have to buy four 9 point socket and a 5 pound sledge hammer, a breaker bar, a pipe, and 4 new lug nuts. If you lost the key to your anti theft lug nut you can take it to a professional  tire repair shop and they can remove the lug nut's for you and hope they have a key that will work. If not there have a tool that can take the lug nut off, with a cost. If your going to try it your self, place the 9 point socket slightly smaller on the lug nut and hammer it on. Be careful not to hurt your self or the car. Once the socket is seized on the lug nut, use the breaker bar and the pipe as an extension for leverage to take the lug nut off. Once off discard the lug nut and socket and do the other three the same way. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Stock anti theft system

Lights flashing, horn blaring, not good for you and neighbors, the system is controlled by the cluster which is also the body computer, tied in with the front controll module, the only way to disarm is with your RKE key, when you press lock, does the horn chirp, and chirp or lights flash when you unlock it? your key also has a chip in it to help disarm from the wcm, part of the halo with the ignition switch, there is no disarm swicthes in the doors on this model, only remote keyless entry here, there is something not working for you, are your keys good, possible wiring problems in the drivers door jamb, this system monitors the doors and liftgate, this is not a system that can be overridden or removed. It can be only accessed by a Chrysler dealer. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

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.

Horn not sounding when is turn on


Faulty wiring is most likely the issue with your vehicle anti theft sometimes overtime the wiring will get old, disconnected, and possibly water rot I would check the wiring or have a professional alarm installer look at it could even be in the harness. If your anti theft works I wouldn't worry to much about the horn sounding when you click the button however once set if you rock the truck and the alarm doesn't sound their is definitely a reason to get it looked at. easiest way to check yourself is to pop the hood and look for the alarm system usually against the firewall on the right or left corner depending on if it is after market or stock look at the connecting wires trace them down and see if their appears to be any noticeable damage if not last resort check the fuse that the alarm is connected too might be blown. Any more deep of an issue would probably require a specialist to take a look at.

Hello accent 2004 with anti theft system battery flat anti theft


Have you verified this system is running the battery down? The system you describe is called the Remote Keyless Entry System (Electronic Time/Alarm & Control System - ETACS Module). It cannot be 'disconnected' without disabling other systems (intermittent wipers, Chime bell, Door Warning, Dimming Off Room Lamp, Seat Belt indicator, remote power door lock/unlock system, etc.)

Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
  • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • 26 circuit connector (C256).
  • 22 circuit connector (C257).
In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
Prearming and Arming the System
The system can be armed if:
  • The ignition is OFF.
  • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
  • All doors are closed.
There are two ways to prearm the system:
  • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
  • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
Disarming an Untriggered System
An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
  1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
  1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
  • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
  • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
Disarming a Triggered System
If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
  1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
  1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
  1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).

VEHICLE WONT START


Section 13-11: Anti-Theft System, Active 1998 Windstar Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Anti-Theft Alarm System NOTE: The system immediately monitors the ignition key lock cylinder upon removal of the key from the ignition. It is not necessary to arm the system for ignition key lock monitoring.

The anti-theft alarm system:
  • protects the vehicle from unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment, engine compartment and cargo area.
  • monitors the status of the ignition key lock cylinder.
  • is controlled by a remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. The remote anti-theft personality module also controls the electronic door lock functions. Refer to Section 01-14B for more details.
  • when armed, detects unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment by using an input from the GEM module regarding the state of the door or liftgate (open or closed).
  • protects the engine compartment with a hood switch which is located on the LH cowl vent panel and is part of windshield wiper motor wiring (17A477) .
  • triggers an alarm if the ignition lock cylinder is forcibly removed from the steering column.
Once triggered, the system responds by:
  • flashing the low beam headlamps, the parklamps, rear lamps and the alarm indicator warning light emitting diode (LED).
  • sounding the horn (13832).
  • disabling the starter circuit until the system is disarmed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remote Anti-Theft Personality Module
  • The remote anti-theft personality module is located behind the instrument panel (04320).
  • It contains a radio receiver that receives the RF signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) through the alarm and lock system antenna (15603) and sends the appropriate command to the power door locks, the horn relay, or the generic electronic module.
  • The remote anti-theft personality module is equipped with an internal backup power supply which holds the programmed code in memory in the event the vehicle battery is disconnected.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remote Anti-Theft Personality Module Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301). Refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Remove radio. Refer to Section 15-01 .
  1. Remove lower instrument panel center finish panel. Refer to Section 01-12 .
  1. Lower glove box.
  1. Remove two remote anti-theft personality module bracket retaining screws.
  1. Disconnect electrical connectors and alarm and lock system antenna (15603).

Installation
  1. To install, follow removal procedure in reverse order.
  1. Tighten remote anti-theft personality module bracket retaining screws to 6-8 Nm (54-70 lb-in).

    34bdf35.gif
Components The system is composed of the following components:
  • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module with integral antenna
  • alarm indicator LED
  • door lock cylinder switch RH, door lock cylinder switch LH
  • liftgate door lock cylinder switch (220A40)
  • hood switch (part of windshield wiper motor wiring (17A477))
  • ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438)
The following vehicle components are also used by the anti-theft alarm system:
  • generic electronic module
  • power door lock switch (14028)
  • door open warning lamp switch (14018)
  • autolamp relay (14N089)
  • horn relay and bracket (13853) and horn (13832)
  • low beam headlamps
  • rear lamps (13404) and parking lamps (13200)
  • starter relay
  • door lock relays
  • keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601)
--------------------------------
Disarming an Untriggered System NOTE: A perimeter alarm will "shut off" after 165 seconds, but the system is still triggered and is not disarmed.

An armed but untriggered perimeter anti-theft system can be disarmed by one of the following four events:
  1. Unlock the doors by pressing the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) UNLOCK button once.
  2. Unlock any door with a key.
  3. Turn ignition switch to RUN or ACC.
  4. The remote entry PANIC button will disarm the anti-theft system only when the perimeter alarm is triggered and sounding.
------------------------------------------------
System Triggering NOTE: Although the remote entry PANIC alarm is not associated with the monitoring of the vehicle, the user will frequently say that the theft system was triggered when actually the keyless entry remote transmitter PANIC button was inadvertently pressed. A panic alarm will not flash the THEFT indicator.

The alarm can be triggered by the following events if the system has been armed and has not been disarmed first:
  • Open any door or liftgate.
  • Open the hood (16612) (if the hood was open when the system was armed, it must be closed before it can trigger the alarm).
  • Dislodge the ignition key lock cylinder.
  • The anti-theft system may be triggered inadvertently when the module is disconnected and then reconnected. To avoid inadvertent alarm triggering, disconnect the smaller 22-way connector first.
When the system is triggered the perimeter alarm will operate as follows: The remote anti-theft personality module will pulse the following outputs at approximately 1.3 Hz, 50 percent duty cycle for two minutes 45 seconds for North America. NOTE: Other perimeter alarms can be programmed for the system.

  • low beam headlamps
  • parking lamps
  • horn
  • THEFT indicator
The perimeter alarm can be retriggered, after a perimeter alarm has sounded for 165 seconds. After a perimeter alarm has timed out, if any trigger input is first seen as normal and is then seen in its trigger state, the perimeter alarm will be retriggered. The perimeter alarm can be triggered a total of three times between an arming sequence and a disarm event. An active panic alarm will be deactivated when a perimeter alarm is triggered (a perimeter alarm overrides a panic alarm).
