Check all wires that is hooked to the battery terminals as one may have been corrioed and or missing as you disterbed the connection casue a pats system would flash a theft light and so on as we know pats are the most pain in the rears theft systems around if its your pcm google how to program a new key see if it works if it does then its a good ecm if not then its a bad pcm or wire

Try by removing cables from battery, and hold cables together for about 10 seconds this may reset pcm. If this doesnt work your vehicle needs to put on a scanner. Not just an obd one.

a lot of cars from ford have the pats system installed. you could also have some pcm issues, for the pcm has to relearn some procedures. hope this helps !

I can't get my 1999 lincoln town car to start


I will try to give you 2 sets of senarios depending on whether it cranks over or not.

There is a safety switch on the Brake pedal which sends a signal to the Brake lights and a starter circuit. If the Brake lights do not light up with a foot on them, then a starter signal will not go through either.

Look under the Driver's dash for the Brake switch on the Brake pedal lever. It could be broken of pushed out if place.

Cranks but no start. The Inertia switch is common problem. It can be located in the trunk or behind the kick panels of the front floor. It has a reset button to push.

Loss of fuel pressure. After checking the Inertia switch if you still have no fuel pressure the pump may be bad.

Now there are other reasons like a dead battery, bad starter, etc.

We need more details to supply additional answers.

My battery went dead and i replaced it and when i re-installed it the alarm went off and it wont start now


Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
valet/overide button, found under the
dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area goes on solid,
and the siren chirps once.

This should reset the alarm, and reset
the grounded relay on the starter wire,
allowing you to start the engine.
the valet switch is by driver side kick panel look for small button may be stuck in wire harness to hide

How do i set car alarm


turn key to on position, just before it turns over. Within 5 seconds press and hold in the valet/overide button found under the dash area
until the blinking light in your dash area goes off and the siren chirps twice. If you have the toggle type, do the same but toggle on after turning key, then turn key off. This should reset the alarm. Repeating these steps places the vehicle back in valet mode. If you don't have the valet switch, you don't have an alarm. I don't seem to remember the 99 explorer having an alarm, and it does not show up in my manuals, only keyless entry.

I have a chevy tahoe 1999 4 door. The problems started with my alarm system killing my battery. Now my car wont start and the alarm seems to still be on. Do i need a new starter? Or is there something else...


The starter is most likely fine, the problem is most likely with the alarm system. I don't know enough about the alarm system to help you though.

Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima


Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
